I would never recommend this school. The teachers are unqualified and uncertified to even be teachers. The academics for the children, in turn, suffer, and you spend all evening teaching your child what should have already been taught during school hours. Any complaints about the school or teachers falls on deaf ears, and you are made to feel stupid as a parent for even questioning their methods of teaching. The principal, however, does try her best to do what is best for the school, but the school board has tied her hands to move the school forward, leaving the same backward practices in place. Also, I had to begin sending my children to extra tutoring for Quran recitation lessons because although this IS an ISLAMIC SCHOOL, the children aren't even taught how to properly make Wudu!

I Don't recommend. The school academy is poor. Most teachers are not certified. No computer lab. Paying for my kids to use the library but there is no good books to read. Not all parents treated same. I don't think the school can be improved.

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.
