I personally love this school! Yes there aren't that many students, but I mean, isn't that all private schools. That is the reason why parents put their kids in private school, for more 1:1 attention with the teachers and students. The teachers are excellent, and the principle is a very strong leader, running the school. Also, for someone who commented about the broken down school. The school moved to much newer, beautiful building. My kids have been here for years and they will continue here until they graduate. It's enough my kids feels safe and secure in this school. Also, the strong curriculum challenges my kids at grade levels higher than their own!

My kids used to go to Al- Huda School three years ago. i couldnt even find a school website to post a review for all these years. A school is suppossed to have a site, but unfortunately this one doesn't. My kids left this school because there were only 50 students. Who can you compete with? There was no competition. Most of the teachers are not great either. The building is broken up, and anyone can get hurt in some places of the building. I heard that this schhol moved, and someone told me that the qualities of the school are still the same. Maybe about 50 students. The tols me that 3 teachers teach 8 subjects even though the teachers are suppossed to teach something else. The students are not getting their full education.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.
