Do your children a favor and stay away. Every year they say we have new administration and it's better. Every year they mislead people. It is the same owners with the same unethical practices. Children's safety and education is never a priority.

Mutanafisun Academy provides the worst quality eduction I have ever encountered. Don"t send your kids there , they are clueless on the fact that kids are individuals and each child is unique in their learning.

I will never forget what damage they did to us. Be very careful with Mutanafisun and don't rush. Look at other options in town.

I'm not from your religion. I tutor some families from this school. I cannot write about inside the school because I have never been there but I can say that these students I tutor are below their level. This is your child, when they don't learn at any private school don't be getting mad at your tutors' fees. It is hard to teach children who learn nothing at school. My advice may seem harsh I say better be safe than sorry, take your child to a school where they can flourish and learn.

We found it odd that all who praised Mutanafisun was working there. Several parents told us they are good in Islamic studies but terrible in reading math science. We said to leave comment online but they don't want trouble. I come from Texas, I don't care! Three parents told us their kids had to go one year behind b/c they did not learn anything at Mutanafisun. Because of that we did not bother also what they did to a brother expelling his good kids was wrong and shameful. People know me by Br. Z.Z from Texas you can contact me if want more info.

We had to leave Mutanafisun years ago. My son begged his mother to take him out. My brother has his girl in there and he seem happy. It's not for everyone.

How could anyone give it a 5 star? I don't get it. They don't even have a playground. Mutanafisun's problems start from the top. It is run by people who have no experience in education. The teachers are underpaid. Sometimes they are harassed. If you want to enroll your child there, go ahead, but be sure to keep your eyes open at all times.

The school does not live up to what they promised. Definitely needs to reexamine their priorities. Not a safe environment for my children at all.

Posted June 1, 2013

Mutanafisun is an excellent school. Both of my children attended at different times. The space is the challenge because of its limited resources. However, the school is like a family, everyone knows and respects each other. The teachers care about their students and go above and beyond to make sure the environment is safe, challenging, and conducive to a good Islamic education. The building is an unfortunate situation and is the only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars

Some good teachers in a very bad environment. There are too many problems with this school. I cannot say where my children is because they still go there. We are not returning back

Hoping to return next year - but the enrollemnt is very tight seems the school has really grown this year - the new pricipal is so on the ball and all the staff, parents and kids love her. They take vouchers now I think that is what is making it hard to get a spot. I am looking forward to next years - Graduation is 6/15 the kids put on a great show every year.

We have two children a 17 year old and a 8 year. We saw the school and decided not to risk. This place needs improvement. Too many upset parents not good.

This school has amazing teachers who are very dedicated and caring. My five children went through this school and have been very successful in the rest of their academic careers. their curriculum is very fun and challenging. My kids love math and science because of it. I highly recommend Mutanafisun for anyone looking for quality Islamic education. I don't know any school that doesn't have one or two upset parents. Come see for yourself what it is about!

This is a great school - the two complaints are from a husband and wife who reaked havoc on the teachers. Excellent Principal, excellent teachers and staff. My son went to the school and graduated. Not only did he gain a strong academic foundation but he also gained an excellent moral foundation that has served him well through his teen age years. Shame on them for slamming this school. My wife will not send our children anywhere elso from K-5 . We wish they went through 12th grade

You get what you pay for. My husband pulled our kids from there. It's obvious the school trying hard to post positive reviews. Just see the school to know what's it all bout.

Parents should be warned about this place. Building is not adequate, there are no fire drills, school officers are rude. I have three children, one of them went there but I had to pull him out. It was awful. The new principal doesn't know much either.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
