Great school. Teachers are very caring. Governing body has really improved the quality over the last 3-4 years. Staff is very respectful and loving to the kids. The poor review from the other parent is misguided. Graduates go to some of the best schools. Very qualified teachers. If I had another child I would send my child to this school. The masjid is not supportive of the school and the school supports the masjid. They just paid over $30,000 for a new heating system. How can that last parent say the heating doesn't work? Seems like an angry reviewer and not honest.

poor school only depending on home giving too much work for kids with no activities. also teachers don't know how to deal with the kids at all. by the end the kids get nothing even the Teranova test is the worst grades state wide. The building is old full of rats with no maintenance plus the heat is not working most of the year.

My son went to attend Pre-K in Al Ghazaly School. Our experience was excellent. They have good teaching staff and I will definitely recommend. Based on our experience, we decided to continue to send my son to this school for 2014 - 2015 'K' Session.

I am a parent in the school and absolutely love it. The English class is amazing mainly due to the teachers. The science is the best I have seen and I was in gifted classes while I was growing up in Jersey City elementary schools. The KIndle competition has really put a unique way to gets excited about reading that is innovative. I have seen multiple articles in the newspaper regarding the science in the school and it is all because of the outstanding science teacher. The partenrship with CUNY is very impressive, although my children are too young to go yet. The school should really be known as Al-Ghazaly School of Technology. My kids can't wait until they get their laptops when going to the 7th grade. This was the right school for me and I am glad I moved from NY to NJ for my kids, so that they could attend this school. May Allah reward all the staff involved in my childrens education.

I am a parent, my son is in the 7th grade, and I have an older one who had also been in the school, we have always admired the academic level and the teachers of the school, but this year the school is exceptional in everything, laptop for every 7th grade student, which is actively used in the classroom, Saturday trips to the CUNY university science lab, using kindles for reading competitions (the story was in Jersey Journal yesterday), competitions in creative communication and Spelling Bee on the state level (an article about one of Alghazaly School students was reported in Jersey Journal last Sat.), and many other academic contests with excellent results. The school is even creative in there selection of sports and who coaches them, swimming, basketball and fencing (who would think of that!). I hope this spirit will stay and continue.

As a high school senior, I am proud to say that Al-Ghazaly has bestowed upon me the priceless gift of fluency in the Arabic language (reading, writing, and speaking) and so much more. Because of Al-Ghazaly, alhamdulilah, I have memorized a great portion of the Qura'n and continue to do so. Whenever approached by a non-Muslim, asking me why I wear the hijab or why I fast, I am able to reply correctly and convey the message of Islam. Thank you Al-Ghazaly; surely I would not possess a fraction of the Islamic knowledge I have today without you.

I am an Al-Ghazaly parent and my family and I have been dedicated members of the Al-Ghazaly community for 17 years now. Al-Ghazaly did not only teach my children Islamic etiquette, Arabic, and Qura'n, but math, science, English, and history as well. With it's outstanding curriculum and competitive classes, I was able to invest in my children for the future of Islam and the progression of mankind. Our duties as Muslims are not to just bear children, but to instill in them the morals and laws of Islam. Thank you Al-Ghazaly; it could not have been done without you.

If you are NOT studying in AlGhazaly elementary then you are missing something. NO doubt in mind about the standard of education and at the same time importance to Islamic teachings. True, they are NOT teachers but mothers. Kids are fun loving and yet strive to work hard on their studies.

I am a former student who went to this school not long ago. Although I know that the school is very old and lacks some luxuries, it is because it is not properly funded by the government. The school staff at Alghazaly is outstanding and is devoted to teaching their students in the most effective way possible through Islamic morals and standards. Although I was considered a trouble maker in my earlier years in Alghazaly it had taught me many valuable lessons. The curriculum is taught and followed which is the required course students must take in their elementary years.

I'm proud to say that Im a female student moving on to the seventh grade in the 2008-2009 school year and that I'm planning to stay here for the rest of my life. The teachers shouldn't be called teachers or sisters....they should be called mothers. Mothers with a kind heart. The lack of extra activities can never level up to the love and care of the wonderful staff. And I didn't even mention the amazing curriculimwheather the arabic science omath or even history curricula

Mashallah I'm proud to say I that I went to this school. It has an excellent staff and a very high standards of teaching. The teacher's are very supportive and are always willing to help. They have an amazing Islamic education which helps a Muslim child develop outstanding Islamic mannerism for the future.

AlGhazaly is an exceptional school. I am not a parent, rather a former student and I am proud to say that I went to Ghazaly. The school prepared me for the intensive curriculum at the best of colleges and I definitely entered college with a sense of confidence in my academic standing. Ghazaly offers individualized attention, which perhaps is one of the best features of going to a school of that size; students come to know almost all of the teachers on a personal and professional level. If it is one thing I am grateful for, it is the fact that I was blessed with spending my high school years at such an exceptional school with faculty that truly care about their students.
