I am currently a student in Al Ghazaly School. I love it because the environment is nice and the teachers are phenomenal! The only thing that bothers me and needs improvement is the outside and inside of the school since it's old. And, tthey should have to have more security policies. Also, the tuition is expensive and so are the book fees. I think that we should keep our books since we pay for them. Also, the books aren't really new. But, I've learned a lot and I have improved during my years with each subject Alhamdillah. JAK for all my teachers and the staff :D

I am a current student at Al-Ghazaly High and it is perfect. The school is very good in academics and Islam. I am learning so much here and the environment is great. The separation between the 2 genders is great. Teachers are very nice, strict, and will push you to the limit until you succeed which is why Al-Ghazaly ranks top in whatever they do. The people here are nice and religious. If I were you, I would send my child to this school. I love it here.

I am a former Al-Ghazaly student, and while this school is not perfect, it is not as bad as people make it seem. I am proud to say that as a Bayonne High School senior, I am able to read, write, and speak Arabic fluently, unlike a great many students raised in public schools. When a non-Muslim approaches me, asking questions like why I wear the hijab or why I fast, I am able to deliver proper, Islamically correct explanation. Al-Ghazaly has also helped me strengthen my writing and reading. However, while the school has its many positive aspects, it also has its flaws. Al-Ghazaly needs to stress the fact that the Islamic clothes students wear make them representatives of the Muslim Ummah. When wearing a Military uniform, soldiers are forbidden from committing unfavorable acts; why should Islamic clothing be any different? Additionally, while the sex separation should continue to be enforced, it should be done in a moderate manner that won't incite students to rebel. Also, the school needs to disregard national origin--we're all Muslim, whether we are Palestinian, Egyptian, Pakistani, Syrian, Jordanian, etc. Other than that, Al-Ghazaly makes a fine Islamic environment.

I agree with the other parents. Haram and 3ibb for the uncleanliness and lack of organization for such an expensive school. They do not even offer the free pre-K1 program to Jersey City residents like Miftaah il Uloom and Rising Star Academy do in Union City. Haram. Al Ghazaly should be ahead of the game considering they are one of the oldest Islamic Schools in the country. I agree with the other parent Allah loves those who are clean and this is a bad example for our children and the nonMuslims who may visit the school. Haram 3leikom this is not from the Islam. Allah also loves those who do things to do them right. (organized and clean). May Allah give the school the means to make it a better opportunity for the Muslims in the area. May Allah guide those who need guidance. May Allah reward those with good intentions. Allah knows best. If I speak in error then it is from me. Allah yehdina.

This is the best Islamic Academy hands down. It produces the most kids that go off to Ivy league colleges. If a student does not make it into Ivy League, they normally get into Rutgers Newark & New Brunswick or NJIT with full scholarships. Their basketball teams are incredible for a non-athletic based school, both the boys team and the girls team. Their science olympiad, mock trial, and model UN teams always place in the top tier of their respective counties. I sent my children to this school and I am happy to say that I got a complete return on my investment. This is the only Islamic School in New Jersey that practices Islam correctly; they are moderate, not too crazy and not too lax. It is the perfect school for muslim children to have the complete high school experience while still staying true to their religion.

The school principal is very unreasonable. Instead of focusing so much on the girl and boy separation, they should focus more on better education. A student's personal life is none of the school's business and outside of their jurisdiction. The principal is not objective at all. Horrible principal.

As said by the previous post this school is amazing. This is the only high school I can say that the teachers actually care for the students. I have been to three different high schools and I must say this is definetely the best. I came from public school to this private school. The school is a great Islamic school and yes they do need some extracurricular activites. So the students should start one there is no one stopping them. The school encourages students to make clubs and helps with funding. My senior class is great many students going to Ivy League Schools, so dont try to make the education or teachers seem low.

The school is great. It offers a very intense cirriculum that really prepares students for the outside world.

what a wonderful school. i love it. if we don't have education, how did my cousin from al ghazaly get into the best college. please don't judge a book by it's cover. in this case, al ghazaly is the book, the building is the cover., and everything inside it is the writing. this is stuff i learned. i am an ghzaly student and i am very proud of it !

this school i so dirty, small, and unacceptable. I believe that they shouldnt worry much about boys and girls area but more on activities and classes. My daughter has been in the school for a couple of months and i am not happy with the school...AT ALL!!

all i can say is that this school should be shut down. their education is unacceptable and so is the environment. the teacher and principal focus too much on the boys and girls being separated and completely forge the education. building is terrible and fire department needs to pay a visit. absolutely no extra curriculars and for a high school that i unacceptable
