This school is not a good neighbor. They do not clean up their surrounding property. Inside their own gates is so much litter raccoons are seen at night coming and going. I would nto send my child here they might get bitten by rats.

i am an open minded Muslim parent and i believe that the all the kids not just my kids should learn about all the cultures. Al Badr school does not support that. they have their own holiday system. they had school on ThanksGiving day, they have school on Christmas day, which i believe is disrespect to not just the american culture but also to their religious believes. if we cant teach our kids about respect for others at this age, how can we teach them anything else about this world. by having school on federal holidays they are openly boycotting the american holidays and teaching our kids that we don't care about anyone or anything else and we care about just us. This is the age where they can learn not just from their parents but also from school systems to be respectful to others, but AL Badr school is lacking in this field, or may be my kids are in the wrong school to learn that. A Concerned Parent.

My son graduated on June 5, 2010. My son attend Badr School from kindergarten through 8th grade. He is well educated and prepatred for high school. Badr schoo in excellent in academica and religious studies. I am American and my son has learned the Quran, Arabic and Islamic Studies as well as Math, English Science etc. I love Badr School! Prents need to get involved and stop blaming schools.

Really bad school for a long list of reasons. I have had a couple of years experience with having my children enrolled here. I gave the school every opportunity to improve and they didn't so I finally sent my children to a different school. I strongly advise against sending your children to this school that has a poor atmosphere and a grossly unqualified staff.

It takes a whole community to educate a child.Education starts at home and it is reinforced and enhanced in school,community,mosque,social and cultural events,sports activities etc.While schools play an integral part in a childs upbringing,it is not solely responsible for his/her performance in school.We as parents need to pay close attention and find time for our kids.As a parent of 3 kids currently attending Badr School,I am a witness to the continuing positive growth of the school.Are there areas that needs to be improved?Absolutely yes like any other school.Communicating your expectations to the school by attending PTA meetings regularly is a start.As to the standards of education,my kids were educated by Badr school since pre-k. and I am proud to say that they have acquired skills that enables them to be competitive to kids their schoolage in other schools.This is a compliment to the dedi- cated,qualified administrators/teachers in Koran,Islamic Studies,Arabic and strong Math,Science,English,Soc.Studies Dept. Badr School education played an impt. role in my eldest sons acceptance at McNair Academic High.Thanks!

It amazes me how parents blame schools for their children's failure. Lets accept failure and watch our children more closely. What part did you as a parent play in your child's not succeeding in certain areas. What part as a parent did you play in enhancing your child's strengths. I hate to say it also; i wouldnt be surprised if its an Arab parent. They almost always blame school system.

I respect your experience at Badr School. However, the system there has improved greatly the staff is qualified and the adminstration evaluates and monitors teachers regularly. Teachers are given various personal developement workshops and also there is the catapolt system for children who need extra help. Also in order to improve your childs education you should work closely with your childs teacher. Volunteer and attend all PTA meetings. Although a school has to have a discipline sytem in place, that begans at home.A teachers primary role is to help build skills needed for lifelong learning not babysitting. There is not much time that can be utilized on a student who refuses behave properly while beyond parental vision. My advise is that we as parents should honestly realize the character of our chldren and work closely with others to help mold the future generation with a sense of respect and responsibilty.

I find that the teachers there are truly qualified to teach and beyond that they are often monitored and evaluted for their performance by the school admistration. And there is a system in place for children that need extra help. By the way its the catapolt system. My advise to anyone who has problems with thier children in school would be to work closely with the teacher and see how your children can get extra help. Ask the teacher for internet resources located in the teachers editions that provide work at home activities for students. Also be an active volunteer in your childs school and attend all PTA meetings and make a difference in your childs education. And I also believe behavior starts in the home. A teacher's primary duty is to help build skills needed for life long learning.

Badr school administration has good intentions but has a horrible system. The teachers should be checked out and evaluated before teaching. My 3 chidren went there 2 being honor students and the other having constant problems now they go to another school that has a great system an teachers are all certified teachers. Please if you send your child to badr make sure you learn each teachers education background my children are having a hard time adjusting to there new school because of the lack of knowledge badr school teachers had and they were allowed to teach. My two girls need help in review work that should have been done the prievious year when they attended badr and my son has no promblems and they labeled him a problem child in badr. Hopefully they have changed and have a better system and certified teachers now.
