My kids have been in huda school for three years now, and I couldn't be happier!! They are always coming home smiling, and have benefitted so much from the Islamic environment. I can't imagine sending my kids anywhere else. Alhamdillah for Huda School!

All 3 of my children go to Huda School and Montessori in Franklin Michigan it is a 5 day Islamic school. This will be the 8th year my children have been going to Huda School. My oldest is graduating 8th grade this year. My children have benefited immensely from the Islamic education as well as the academics. For anyone looking for a high quality Islamic environment with High academic standards Huda school is and has been the school of choice for 25 years. I highly recommend it!

I'm so happy with the Islamic and academic growth my children have experienced at Huda School. It's by far the strongest Islamic school in the state, competitive with the excellent districts in our area.

I love huda school. My daughter is at pre school and I am so happy with her progress and all the teachers are super nice and caring
—Submitted by a parent


Posted November 20, 2009

The classrooms are very small and kids seem cramped. Tuition is about 550 month, so hard to send more than one child. - they do offer a small discount and some scholarships for financial hardship. I have had some concern with material taught in the Islamic studies class, that has not been age appropriate for the young children and has caused confusion to my child.

The teachers work with each individual student to make sure they achieve their full potential. They *care* about the kids, and the kids love learning with them!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

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.
