I really wanted a place I wouldn't have to compromise a good education for an Islamic one . I am sorry to say this did not happen. Things like calling previous employer were not done! Teachers were hired in a rush and with the lowest salaries! You cannot run a good school without good teachers no matter how good your model is. It is very disturbing to see your kids changing teachers three times in a year! The psychological impact on the kids is never taken into perspective! Parents are never informed of why teachers leave,, why teachers are fired or why nonmuslim a or assistants are hired. The whole school year has been one marketing show after another rather than for educating the kids. The art auction, the science fair or the graduation. The focus is never on the kids actually enjoying the activity . Rather it's all about impressing the parents. I expected more from the school. And it pains me to write this but I really feel prospective parents should have the full picture before signing up. This is just like any other Islamic school. You get the mess the politics the drama but you pay way more for it!
Wow! The graduation//show was amazing! I can't believe my kids can get up on stage like that, memorize their lines so well! most kids were able to speak so clearly and project their voices like experienced performers! The kids who recited Quran did so well, my husband told me he heard the Qari from Egypt said their recitations were outstanding. Just in this event I see so much benefit. The self confidence and cooperation that is developed through preparing is invaluable. The staff and children did an amazing job. My only complaint is that some of the parents still behave very immaturely and got up in the middle, chatting, eating, drowning out the poor children on stage. What childish behavior from adults! If you are considering wellspring, please be sure you are mature and serious about education. Otherwise you will miss all the good and only detract from it. I know wellspring is right for my family. The classrooms and administration are so creative and it's clear the care, concern and knowledge that goes into building it. We are very pleased and will not take it for granted because we know it is a diamond in the rough and will only continue to get better, with Allah's help.
I was at the graduation ceremony. I have to say I am surprised the kids can perform such a beautiful show. To see them very confidently performing on stage, is a really proud moment for me. There are mistakes here and there, but that made them even cuter. Hey, this is a school performance. I am proud of my kid and his friends. They practiced hard, and they memorized such a long skit. We should be very proud of their hard work.
The school is excellent in their performance and the environment . I wish them the best they are working very hard god bless
Subhana ALLAH my heart aches to have to write this about an islamic project where people are trying to make it work. The thing is that the two reviews i read here were one of the reasons i registered my kids so i believe that new parents should know the whole picture. From what i see Academic 7/10 quran 9/10 Arabic 10/10 Hands On 6/10 i guess it all depends on your priorities... The thing that bothered me the most is that every single thing costs $$... so although you pay a small fortune...it only covers basics...any sort of trips (well one trip) you have to pay, school event with kids (you have to pay...graduation), fundraising you are practically bullied to sell tickets ... i just felt the whole year was pay, pay, pay over and above the tuition... it unfortunately takes away from the feeling of belonging to this school. If you have lots of money and dont mind paying for everything i would say go for it...
School is not as good as they make it seem. A bit unorganized, and parents are not allowed to be involved. Tuition is very high for the education they are providing. It seems that they are more concerned on marketing the school
Allahu Akbar! Alhamdulillah, Wellspring has done everything they claimed and much more. I have personally NEVER seen a school developed and as efficient as Wellspring. Br. Shakiel and his staff have done a phenomenal job . . .
