Amazing school, Highly qualified and respectful staff beginning from the principal, the secretary and all the teachers. every time I drop my kids,I feel that I leave my kids with their family. it is really a great school.

There is a new professional principal at the school who is trying to improve the school. However, there is much more work that needs to be done. There is a lack of professionalism in terms of how the secretary handles the office work and communication with parents and teachers. She lacks the qualifications to do this work. Many of the school's problems stem from the secretaries inadequacies. There are some qualified teachers, but the majority of teachers are inexperienced and do not know anything about teaching!

The school is has small classes(what I like) nice teachers and an excellent Arabic and Islamic studies resource!!! When you get in you feel you are home! I love this school! This year they have new teachers as well as the pricipal; but honestly both former principals did a great job; hopefully the new principal would make a success!

The former principal was not qualified at all to run this school. The school needed a real professional principal. Thank God, this year there is a new principal and we believe he will be able to help the school improve and get better.

This is the best school for parents who are seeking a good education for their children (has PreK-6th grade) in Science, Arabic and Islamic studies. The fact that it is a small school makes it unique with a very nice environment and a personal education. Both previous and actual principals (PHDs holders) are very qualified and are good listeners and action takers. The school needed some improvements like play yard and restaurant.

The school needs a lot of things to reach the required minimum level needed for a good education. The principal is terrible, a very bad leader who listens to the parents' concerns when he wants to, but he always has answers that suit him, that do not satisfy the parents nor resolve any problems. He calls "bullying" social behavior and doesn't do anything to stop it or reprimands the student (S) who did it. He doesn't treat all the students equally. The school has different teachers almost every year and this year, 2 teachers left in the middle of the school year. There are some good teachers and some others who are not up to the required level. In conclusion, the school needs tremendous help.

This is a school with major faults. If a child scores low on a test, the principal will have him or her repeat it or, he will tell the teacher to give the child a better grade, but only depending on the child, this is special treatment for parents who are on his side. This school is a joke, what is worse than having a horrible principal, is having people who think that he is a good leader. He knows nothing about education.

This must be a really old review and information about the school. The school nows has grades PreK-6th grade. The school is very clean, the class sizes are small, the people friendly and the teacher are very professional. It's a great community school. If you don't believe me, you need to see it yourself.
