I am a parent of a 5th grader. My child has attended public school up until 7 months ago, and every single day was a struggle. Nur Islamic School of Louisville has truly been a great blessing for us. My child has autism and they have been extremely helpful and understanding with our sometimes difficult circumstances. The teachers all go above and beyond their classrooms, making each student and parent feel like 'family'. Some of the public schools we attended had the family feel, however they lowered the standards for my child's learning due to his autism. I can honestly say that NISL has never done that, and even better has HIGHER expectations from the students therefore they have no choice but to learn and excel. This school is open to children of all backgrounds and faiths. There are teachers and children alike who are not Muslim, and they are all happy and welcome and never made to feel uncomfortable. This is is what is RIGHT with education!
My son attends pre-k at Nur Islamic School and I couldn't be more pleased with my sons' education. I have seen a vast improvement in his speech and his behavior since attending. My son looks forward to each day with excitement and joy.
All my children attend this school and am very satisfied with the environment and discipline. The school has strong moral guidance and teachers are committed to achieve academic excellence . With the very limited resource, the school has improved a lot. More extra curricular activities have been added recently such as art club, drama club, Judo classes and archery in addition to regular field trips in and out of state attractive places. I Would like to see more faithful community members enroll their children at this great school!
I am very pleased with NISL, as it provided my daughter with a solid foundation in Math, Science and Language Arts, as well as in Quran and Islamic Studies. Alhamdulillah, my daughter is now in college.
I am very pleased with the school. The PreK program is always full of hands on activities. My second grader does exciting projects. My sixth grader has won in academic events. I am very happy my children are in a good Islamic environment.
I have been involved with Nour Islamic School of Louisville for many years as a parent and volunteer and seen it grow continously. Despite the financial struggles, the staff and the bord never tired to stay the course to achieve their goal which is to educate and build character. The improvements are evident in the reached levels of the students and the caliber staff being employed. My kids went to this school and I am proud to say that they are well educated and rounded individuals. Their values and character was build up on at this school. They are a joy to be with and carry a meaningful conversation just about any topic and use Islamic value judgement in their approach to solution seeking and implementing. Although lots of improvement, NISL is not done. It will be great if school expands to include high school education. I have complete faith that more success is on the way. If any parent is thinking of a good school to send the kids to, he or she will not go wrong by choosing Nour Islamic School.
Nur Islamic School is a great school. It is struggling but it has a lot of potentials. It teaches character, manners, respect and other values that we see lacking or missing in nowadays world. Teachers and administration face obstacles almost on a daily basis. However, the staff members have one mission in mind: achieve the goal of instilling various skills to empower the students to be active and efficient members in the community in the present and later in their lives.
My grandchildren attend this school and they love it! The school provides excellent education and diverse culture!
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.
My son is enrolled in this school and I am satisfied with the administration, staff, and curriculum! I have seen much progress in my son's academic level and I look forward to the next school year! ;)
I have two daughters that attend this school, it's their first year but I have seen such an improvement in their overall character and education that I will definitely be enrolling again in August! I extremely happy with how much they've learned and with the teachers and principal!
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!
i love it, it is nice , people are kind and polite every body wants to help you friendly staff good meals big area for outdoor activities for students
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.
Very caring teachers, kids are prepared for thinking out of the box and taught a second language starting in elementary school
I have been teaching at this school for two years now. It is an amazing school with values. :-)
Has a great Islamic environment and atmosphere. Many extracurricular activities and good student to teacher ratio.
Very pleased with academics, student to teacher ratio, reasonable tuition, and good administration. Needs few improvements such as daily physical education.
