I highly recommend Dar Un Noor Academy becuase while i was there i learned basic and fundamental skills in my life. The teachers are epic like the fifth grade teacher and the administration manager is awesome! . The teachers always interact with the students in a gentle/kind way. One of the staff members always used to play soccer with us. I still remember the lessons I've learned from DNA. DNA prepares you for the academic world so well that after I left, I knew everything and was ahead of my class. I hope that you can consider this school becuase it helped me academically and spiritually. As I said before, the teachers are remarkable and amazing!

I am very pleased with my decision in becoming part of the Dar un Noor family. The environment is very warm and welcoming everyone looks after one another. My child is so happy and has become so knowledgable of arabic Quran and islamic studies in such a short period of time mashAllah. The academics are outstanding .. The events through out the year are wonderful they perform a mini hajj.durring the eid celebration.. They have international day ..seerah competitions, a spelling bee, parent appriation week, science fair, islamic book fair, and scholastic book fair just to mention a few.. I felt compelled to leave a comment because I know a lot of parents whom are very happy, people don't make reviews when they are content .. If you are thinking about DNA.. I highly recommend it.

This school is the best choice my parents made...is left this year...so last year was my last year there....and when I see other reviews...the truth is that they r students who do not like the school...I been there before.....I used to hate it a lot.....and when a hater says something...you have to listen.....I love it now...I was with a Muslim community with Muslim friends(I did hear that now they hire non Muslims to work there) but while I was there it was fantastic....this year I heard there are 32 students in the whole middle school...anyways I now go to a regular school(private) and I feel alone because....I am not with Muslims anymore like I used to be...Peace at DNS

Don't go to this school!!! The sooner this school gets run down the better for the kids! Two students got ISS for high-fiving each other, under pretense of "bullying". Seriously?!

Part 2 Most of the teachers are fair with the students, although there is always one or two that will have a problem with some students, that is in every school,and the Principal, well, she is a completely different story! Most students are treated nicely (because most students pay full tuition and give donations) but for those who don't, because they cannot afford it. She will play with their mind, and make them think they are wrong. And for the "vice" principal, he made the 6th grade class swear by god (this is an islamic school) that if they get out of their seat, the will be given ISS (in school suspension) without hesitation. I mean, how childish is that? And this was not just words, he enforced this multiple times. Curriculum is good, but for what? An uneducated "so-called" principal who is only in it for the money? overall, I do not recommend this school to anyone. Other Islamic schools I know of are Al-falah, ilm academy, and there are a few others. By the way, they started hiring christian, jewish and teachers/staff of other religions, proving weakness of this place........... I hope this helped some people make good choices Salam waulaykum,

Excellent teachers. Strong principal: she personally conveys Islamic message and provides support to teachers and parents in creating Islamic environment for our kids. I am a parent of 3 children attending this school for 8 years now. I witnessed how principal dealt with teachers who did not fully meet expectations. School recently got new associate principal. Although many things (in administration) have improved over past two years, we have long way to go. What's lacking is parents involvement. Promising news: PTO is converted to PTA. If you are Muslim parent you have no other choice but Dar-Un-Noor.

The teachers at DNA are good, but the administration needs a complete overhaul. Educated and qualified people should be running the school

It is easy to be critical. However it is impossible to draw conclusions based on a few isolated incidents that certain individuals have experienced. Often these are based on conflicting personalities and cultures that lead to snap judgements based on anger and frustration. A school is only as good as the students and the parents who attend. Most who give bad reviews are merely posting because they did not get "their way." Look at the big picture, what other alternatives do we have? Not many. why not support the school and try to make it better through participation and creative input. I am a parent and I have 3 children attending the school. Although I have not been in agreement with absolutely everything, I have found that the sacrifices and compromises we make personally are rewarded. I think some parents want to simply drop their children off at school and forget about the rest. I just doesn't work this way, AT ANY SCHOOL. I feel the adminstration and staff truly make an effort to achieve excellence. Sometimes the results can fall short, but it is our job to keep trying and supporting those who have taken on this very important responsibility.

Although while in Dar un Noor, i didn't think highly of it, but now that I have left, i realize its one of the best things that could ever have happened. The students and teachers there become your family and no one puts family down. It has been a wonderful experience because you meet more Muslims and your kids have a nice Islamic foundation. I think dar un noor is wonderful. the bad comments below are probably just from angry parents.

Poor administration. Lack of leadership from Board of Directors. Good Teachers, but are not given adequate support or resources. School needs new principal and new leadership. No extra-curricular acitvities and poor parent involvement. Lack of participation in regional competitions. Principal is very unprofessional and lacks administrative experience. Class size is too large for a private school. Excellent Islamic curriculum and Arabic language curriculum. Pulled my kids out 2 years ago and considered returning next school year, but nothing has changed! Same problems and large teacher turnover.
