School is small and focused on detail. We have two kids there and are only sorry that we did not hear about the school for our oldest one to attend as well.

One of the very few schools in the nation to provide 21st Century leadership program at elementary school level. Current students fare 40% better at standardized State tests than public school students. The school is growing is growing, purchased a spacious building in the heart of Schaumburg. Spacious classrooms, Physical activity area, Labs, Library and many others. Separate classrooms for Quran & Islamic studies. Students who've graduated from Hadi School have enrolled in AP classes in Public schools. My daughter goes to Hadi School and I'm very satisfied with the progress she's making academically and socially at Hadi School. The staff and programs make Hadi School of Excellence an important/good choice for my daughter's development.

I would like to inform the concerned parents that Hadi School of Excellence has purchaed a new building which is much larger and beautiful. The school will also have much bigger and better outdoor play area. These would be an excellent supplement to our outstanding educational services.

Teachers, cirriculum and staff are excellent, caring, kind, patient, but the facility itself is lacking immensly. There is no gym or playground and the classros are quite small and cramped. My child really has learned quite a bit and thrived here though.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
