Salam Academy integrates excellent teaching to prepare our children for better future opportunities with basic Islamic teaching. It is small and gives our children the attention they deserve.

My first experience was to come and observe the kids, Imam Shafi'i was also delivering lecture. School was also in good and safe area. Kids there are learning great discipline and are very active. Future expansion will be necessary so more kids can be enrolled. If I get chance to move to Albaquerque, MN I will enroll my kids there. God Willing !!!

I believe Salam academy has teachers who really care for their students. Their always having gatherings to get parents involved with the school. They do focus on the teachings of Islam and do a wonderful job with that. There are some down sides in my a opinion, the school is some what unorganized and over crowd with stuff, also it's one of the only islamic schools that doesn't have uniforms so children wear whatever they want not always dressing appropriate.

Salam Academy has beena great school for my children. They have attended this school since they were in prek. They currently test more than one grade above the national average. The atmosphere of the school is conservative in comparison to American society so children are not exposed to the adult issues that plague public schools. I would reccomend this school to anyone who wants their child to work hard to do well.

I believe in miracles and this school is a proof of how they are managing great quality and environment while staying within limited resources. I guess that it is because of the prayers of the people that this school has helped.

This school has come so far through the years... I was there through my middle school years and I created bonds with friends there that are still strong today. It's a small, family-oriented school. :)

I love any Islamic school that will educate our children about our religion. It's the only one in New Mexico and they're trying so hard to make things work for the children of the community they deserve to win.

I love this school as it is a community school where everyone is like a family. The staff/ faculty are very helpful. Everyone work as a team in development of kids. School standardized scores are high. I cannot wait to see the school to start a high school soon and have their own building.

i have three kids who go to Salam Acdemy and we are happy with this school, we love the fact that Allah gets praise there. They pray Zuhur on time and the children learn how important this time really is. Salam Academy is open to the parents idea's and their opinion too. Which this is a new school about 10 year's now and they are soooooo understanding that i think this is the best school to go to. My childen are learning so much about repect and how to walk in Allah's light. Yes my childen are getting a good education as well.

I feel that my child have a better opportunity to learn in this school Arabic and Islamic study beside the regular curriculum than in the regular public school system. I have1 child attending Salam Academy this year. I have been involved with two other charter schools and I must say, this one is the best. Salam Academy makes you feel welcome and they care about your child being successful. The teachers are very good about assisting a child and motivating him to do his best. The principal knows each child and parent by name and never treats you as you are below her. I have enjoyed being involved with Salam Academy.

At Salam Academy, you will fined all the teachers to be well prepared, offering challenging lesson plans. They offer a quality education and provide excellent lessons in learning good character. Thanks to the dedicated, high quality teachers and principal at Salam Academy. My two sons attend school here, ages 9 & 5. Salam Academy allows the students to develop their own individual potential. Salam Academy has provided the extra support the students need to be successful - Salam Academy has a wonderful Arabic, Islamic studies, and Quran program, staff makes you feel like family, its always a pleasure to get involved.

I currently have 3 children enrolled in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade and they love going to school everyday. I feel that Salam Academy makes learning enjoyable and the children look at it as a lifelong journey. Thank you Salam Academy for producing a safe. Caring, loving, and wonderful school.

I m very happy with Salam Academy. The ITBS national scores show our students are one to two grades above average in all subjects for all grades. Salam is always asking for input from parents and the community for improvement and continues to improve each year. Our students are accepted to prominent private high schools and win several awards on state and regional levels in science fair competitions. In all private schools, the parents are asked to pay tuition, but it is below the average cost of local parochial schools and pre- schools. Several families who care for the future of children founded Salam Academy. It is an ethnically diverse school and each child is taught to respect each other and his or her own individuality. The teachers and administration at Salam Academy are quite experienced in education and show great care towards the students and families. A great educational environment!

My kids have attended the school since its inception and salam academy has come a long way. The children have a safe and healthy environment to grow and excel in,as well as learn to be respectful to their elders. The teachers treat the students on one to one basis and work on their individual needs. They also learn arabic which is an added advantage. Salam academy has proved to be a blessing in disguise for my family. The school administration has worked hard to achieve these results and parents like myself are extermely pleased with the results. All the best salam. Keep up the good work.

Salam Academy suffers from many common problems with Muslim schools around the US: it lacks the Muslim community funding, which means the majority of funding comes from the one family that started the school. This leads to strict control over the school by a family that lacks specific training in education or in education management. You can expect that the school will have a new principal who is not specialized in education almost every year, though behind the scenes it is run by the one family that started it. The turnover of teachers is very high due to lack of professionalism of the administration in the school. Parents and community ideas to improve the school are slammed, which leaves parents frustrated. The level of education in the school maybe comparable to other schools in Albuquerque, but is below average, and parents need to constantly work with their children at home.

I'm very happy thus far with the academic structure of the school. It's a Muslim funded school but the teaching style is Montessori so you don't get force feed religion. What you do get is a sound education and a very respectable child with solid leadership skills. I'm happy my child will know English, Spanish and Arabic; which can only open up doors for his future. A little more sport activities for girls would be most helpful.
