By far one of the the best islamic school in the country. With an impeccable staff, warm environment, and updated surroundings, IFS really is a brilliant school. Having gone there for more than 12 years, I can tell you from experience that this school has ups and downs like all others, but nowhere can you find the family environment and diversity. The school has students of such interesting diversities, including but not limited to Middle Eastern, South Asian, East Asian, African, African American, European, and Puerto Rican. The other Islamic schools in the area are either majority Indo/Pak or majority Middle Eastern. Diversity shapes the school daily. As with the administration, they've done a phenomenal job, Mr.Omar, Ms.Fahmy, and Ms.Shariff. This school has changed a lot over the years, but it's for the better. We have teachers who really care for the students and help in any way, whether it be tutoring before school, during lunch, after school, or on the weekends. Students have gotten into Ivy Leagues but the school doesn't overly advertise it because there is more than just college acceptances that the school is there for. You come there to grow individually and spiritually with excellent Islamic programs. There is a plethora of clubs ranging from WYSE and Model UN to Drama Club and Nasheed Club. ACT scores are above average with many getting in the upper 30's and AP scores are high as well. It's a one of a kind school with truly one of a kind people.
