This school is wonderful place for my elementary level kids. I appreciate the respected staff and all the community members.

A wonderful environment and caring teachers... I am glad my daughter goes to this school. Most importantly, the teach students discipline.

No good reviews for a long time then all of a sudden 15 4 star or greater reviews in the matter of a month! That is greater than 10% of the schools enrolled student body! It appears that the school itself is falsely trying to increase its ratings after 5+ years as being a 2-3 star school. There are no average SAT/ACT scores reported from the graduating classes. This leads me to strongly doubt the latest posts of their students being 5 years ahead academically. What 10 sports teams (which is what the school is reporting on Greatschools.org) does this school have? Parents, save your money and heartache. If this school cannot be honest, even with them being a religious school, then what are they hiding?

The Muslim Community school is a very warm and loving atmosphere, where children are treated with love and respect. In turn, they are expected to respect and love their elders/teachers. This is in large part the reason it is able to withstand the many trials it happens upon each year. The dedication of some core administrative staff and teaching staff has helped the school flourish both academically and in boosting the overall morale of the school as an above-average learning institution with a family-like atmosphere. This year has especially been trying, and to witness the resolve and problem-solving skills of the administration, staff, parents and students working together towards a common goal has been inspiring and a lesson in the power of sincere intention and hard work. I salute those who have worked tirelessly to help the school continue to thrive despite the odds. These are lessons in persistence and determination that cannot be taught in a text, yet this school teaches by example. For those directly involved in this process, God Bless you for your efforts!

I would like to start off saying that this school has a friendly environment. The school itself consists of many teachers not only proud to teach, but also proud to be with students. Subjects taught in this school are not just the main MCPS curriculum, but also ethical values and Islamic practices. The standard of education is very high, and the students are about five years above their level. The principal is a kindred soul, and caring for students. However, she could become disciplinary if she wants to. Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the MCS family, the teachers (Sr. Nahla, Sr. Saba, Coach Tim, Sr. Maryam, Sr. Kemi, Sr. Nusrat, Sr. Rayan, Sr. Mahboubeh, Miss Yeater, Br. AbdulJalil, Sr. Mahboubeh, Sr. Itidal, Sr. Farideh Imani, Sr. Farida Khan, and Sr. Farideh Garmroudi), the Board, the SGA, and our beloved principal, Sr. Somayyeh.

The most beautiful thing about the school is that you feel everyone including staffs and families, are a big family, who care for each other. Having polite kids and well educated families are the other reason to name this school one of the bests.

This school is an outstanding school which has an environment full of warmth and friendship. A message to all community members: This school has low academic standards because of lack of money. How about you stop complaining and help? Certain community members only complain about issues, but when it comes to helping MCS, they back off as if it has nothing to do with them. If you truly are concerned with the welfare and success of MCS students, then stop speaking words that you show no support of. MCS has students with unlimited potentials and teachers who are caring and articulated. MCS can be like any other school, but it depends on our support. May Allah (SWT) help us become more aware of our responsibility of upholding this school's banner.

I'm a parent of a current student. Our child has attended other schools and therefore has a perspective on what she does and does not like. She has developed a tremendous affiliation with the school, staff and her classmates. She has found a place where she belongs, is welcomes and looks forward to being a part of. She is progressing well in her secular education while also receiving exposure to foundational education in core religious beliefs and practices. The school is of course limited in resources and seems to be on a recurring cycle of new management. It seems that the current leadership has been able to finally get the school on a solid financial foundation upon which to build and plan. The continued success of the school will rest on the active participation of the parents and community. If you are looking for a place where the staff will treat your child as their own, are open to improving and where you can have a real say, this is the pace for you! May Allah continue to support the MCS team in their noble endeavor - I see even brighter days ahead iA.
