Great school. Perfect place for your kids to grow. Learning respect and how to be responsible young adults.

Our school is still developing. These teachers pour their hearts into everything they do for the children. Each teacher is responsible for not only their class, but an entire grade alone. The teachers also have the responsibilities that are usually done by team leaders, office managers, counselors, and cleaning staff. More supplies and technology would make their "jobs" a lot easier! Thank you for considering us.

Nur Islamic school is one of those organizations that care about providing the best possible education service to our kids. My daughter has been enrolled there for 3 years from infant room and all the way till preschool. she's been developing so fast with the great curriculum they offer at the school. Besides Islamic studies, all basic skills in math, science, English are well-established and organized very well. I can't think of another school to enroll my daughter at.

Phenomenal educators and administration. Education is most important to me for my girls, However, another thing I appreciate greatly about Nur is the nurturing of sound moral teachings. Parents and educators really listen and pay attention to parent concerns! Most of us families of Nur make great sacrifices to send our kids to Nur. Some of us work 2 jobs to pay tuition, while others drive up to an hour one way! I could never imagine my kids ANYWHERE else!

This is a fantastic school with focus on nurturing the young children to become a responsible, kind & sensuous adults. The specialty of this school is that they build strong ethical values in addition to the curricular & extra curricular activities. It is the best package I could provide to my daughter. The staff go that extra mile & address the individual needs of the students.

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.
