It's an okay school, nothing over the top however. The school can be improved in a varied amount of circumstances, however it seems as if the Administration is not willing to take any risks with the current state of the school. The teachers are knowledgeable enough to determine them capable enough to teach, from what I can see at the least. My only complain would be the lack of recess materials and equipment withheld in the school, as there is barely any grass on the soccer field, the fences barricading from the nearby neighborhood are breaking, and overall the school is not upholding the responsibility they have of inducing a safe and calm place for the children to enjoy. Many hazards can be located in the play areas, and I would strongly recommend any sort of make-over to acknowledge and assure the safety and quality assurance Crescent is sought to be known for.

I enrolled my child at Crescent Academy, and I would like to put up a fair warning to any parents who wish to enroll their children. This school is greatly distressing. The school is unable to manage their expenses. The teachers can be quite conceited and somewhat unclear. This website tells me a helpful review should tell parents what I think they should know, which I have done. It also tells me to say what I like about the school, and I would like to say that there is nothing good about this school. It simply lacks the capability to maintain an advanced education and has poor commitment socially. Also, the website tells me to say how the school improve. The school has crossed the line. It cannot improve. When the last principal left us, I saw a significant drop in school quality. I would like to end by saying: Don't enroll. This school isn't the right school for you. It isn't good for anyone.

Amazing teachers. Great learning environment. Special focus on basic skills like reading.curricula is at/ above grade level & NWEA testing scores prove that. Students learn respect, care and gratitude as a person and values that are important for their survival as a good human being. The one thing i think school can incorporate to become even better is probably introduction of more extra curricular activities and encourage students to participate in them. For new parents: in addition to regular curriculum, school has a special focus on Arabic language and its teaching starts from preschool.

Crescent Academy International is an amazing school! The teachers are wonderful and i've seen a lot of growth in both my children not just in their islamic studies but also academically. My children have exceeded beyond my expectations. This institution is a wonderful environment for any child to grow and prosper and i recommend it highly to all parents.

To begin with,I consider myself honored to be part of the wonderful CAI family.. this is my son's 3rd year at Crescent and he couldn't wait for school to start this year..I'm very content with the academic level at this school..based on my friends' experiences (who have kids in public schools of the same grades)this school's academic level is above average..In addition to that,all the staff I've met in the school are wonderful people who are passionate and caring for their students..Above all ,the reason why I enrolled my child was that it is an islamic school ..CAI has exceeded my expectations in fullfiling the aspect of religious education..the staff works on all the diverse aspects of raising a confident ,educated and involved muslim child in our american society..WAY TO GO CAI !!

My son goes to this school. I must say he is learning a lot in terms of general and islamic education. I am amazed with the amount of knowledge he gains while he is there. I am very fortunate to have him receive education at this school.

An absolutely incredible school. I am sorry there is one review about the MEAP test scores but if you go the state of Michigan website it shows CAI has some of the highest scores in the region. However, the values, compassion and integrity are what I really like about the school. Hands down best school bar none in the area with the exception of physical education. Could work on teacher development for some grades.As a whole a great place.

As a parent, I continue to be a fan of Crescent Academy. I will have two enrolled children this school year and I can't wait. I read some reviews about Teacher Pemba, who is managing the middle school, she is a well educated teacher with a degree from University of Michigan. I have no doubt in my mind, that the path of dicipline that all teachers provide is the same at all levels whether you are KG or Gr8. Crescent has been always proactive in getting feedback from parents as well as students and they have delivered on a lot of promises. I command them for striving for continous improvements and hope that students will be more vocal on any concerns they have.

I actually been there, and just to say the school is not all that great that the parents say it is. The cirriculum is below average. I went to public school with above average meap scores, then when I went to Crescent my meap scores went dow to an average, which is not good. I even read at least 1 hour on my own, but they need to learn to be more public (Sr.Pembe-A lady who is teaching there uneducatedly, and is really mena and strict) The teachers act all good in front of the parents, and good, but they really are not. Even there way of teaching has no hands on activities.

Crescent academy has an excellent environment for the academic advancement of my children. It also focuses on their moral and spiritual development into well-balanced, good human beings.

Excellent School and it covers all the aspects of learning. The plus side is the imparting of family values and religous values and responsibity at an early stages of a child's life. Crescent Academy International truly is a unique school, I only wish the fees were more reasonable so that people (not related to Engineering or Medical professiona) could afford this excellent education.

I think the it is a fairly well school education wise, but it does not give the student body chances like other schools. the new building was way too large, it is also very expensive.

I have 2 children in Crescent Academy. It is an excellent school. The montessori program is fantastic. The teachers are excellent. They are patient and kind and have a wonderful way of teaching. My 4 year old is reading already, and my 6 year old finished kindergarten and is reading at a 3rd grade level. They are learning Arabic and Islamic values. I am truly impressed at the professionalism of the staff. They do an excellent job of teaching kids how to be good muslims in American society. It is an wonderful school that I am proud to be part of.

I go toC and I have to say that it is the best school I have ever enrolled her in. The curriculum is basically what public schools teach but CAI also teches Quran and the arabic language. It is a great communtiy for muslim children and they do not have to be shy or unsecure. They can be proud of being a muslim at CAI.
