MUA is an excellent Montessori School, with excellent teachers. I am especially excited this as we have a very compassionate, visionary and thoughtful principal, who is doing a great job, pulling all of the stakeholders to help this school. Happy kids, Happy Teachers, Happy Parents, Great Community!!!!

I'm a former student at miftaahul Uloom academy. i've seen everything that this school can go threw, both the good and the bad. honestly i think and hope that nothing stops it from moving on to becoming the best it can be. this school has welcomed the worst & the best of people and it also has dealth with them & shaped those people. MUA brings out the best of who ever walks in. The staff at Mua arent there,just to do their jobs but they do it with love and care,so that they can be able to make a good impact on the students of MUA. The staff are up to do whatever it takes to get the students motivated & influenced to hold on to thier education. if thats what every parent wants from thier kids school, then why doubt about bringing them to MUA.

In Northern NJ it is hard to find an Islamic school in a proper school building. This school has all the required facilities and the teachers are committed to the students' educational experience at the school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
