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.
Low budget school, has no extra activities, education is mediocre. Uniform makes no sense and there are many hidden fees. Teachers are barley know how to speak english.
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 !!
Great education , great learning experience for my child and a plus for my child's personal and religious development
I think that Crescent Academy is a GREAT school, that excells and achieves many components that other schools arent even close to reaching! if you are resisting to send you child there, DONT hesitate and DO it NOW!
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.
I have 3 kids in Crescent ,there education is above I expected ,MEAP test are very high , extra curriculum activities are quite often, need some work on sports activities .Overall 5 star school.
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.
its an excellent school everything is just like regular schools along with the religious education.which is really good.teachers & the principal is great I am happy to be part of it.its worth my 40 min drive one way!
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.
