It's very nice school but just need some textbooks! But my friend is in this school and I'm so happy !

Posted August 10, 2014

Not a great school, but horrible one. They are money driven. Always collecting more than They need.. There are no TEXT BOOKS.. So teachers Teach whatever they feel like.. Teachers are not certified :-( There's NO RESPECT to the paying parents and their kids.. Teachers are always Gossiping about the kids and their parents. Subjects not taught: science, geography, art, History, computer, writing, reading and etc.. Subjects taught: Quran, Arabic and very little English..

this school is total BS. ITS A WASTE OF MONEY!! 500 dollars a month is a waste. students do not learn anything. my kids went there and all they do is sit around while teachers scream. the teachers have no respect for the parents and they expect the students to have respect for them.

Roaches in the daycare. Lice in every room of the elementary. Biased, bad leadership for the administration. Inadequate curriculum. This school does not "walk the talk" but talks a good one! If you want an unloving sad environment where your kids will not improve on reading, english or math send your child here for tears.

A new building is what they need. It would be a great school if this school wasn't made out of little stores next to each other. At first when the school opened students had to walk out of the stores( classrooms) and go to the place where the lockers are to get stuff for the next class, and then walk outdoors in the sun/cold to their class there is no gym, instead they bought a piece of land close to the school and make it their "gym". the grass has a lot of mud, and it is impossible to play after rain . Teachers are great, students are great, academics are great but the hygiene and organization? Not great. This school needs a lot of improvement.

Unfortunately I graduated from this school and I didn't get accepted to my dream university due to "lack of education and poor schooling". I blame this school for everything, and don't send your kids here because you don't want this to happen to you. EVEN LEE HIGHSCHOOL IS BETTER THAN THIS. On the other hand, my sister who happened to graduate from alhadi, got accepted to one of the top universities in Texas, so if you are looking for an " Islamic environment " as most people are, choose alhadi over this school.

Ok this is messed up so first of all this school is a train, if you've been there u know what I mean. Second of all the teachers are horrible, you could only find a few good ones. Not to mention the education system, I dont even wanna talk about it ok ok I will so basically they use the oldest textbooks and the grading system??? You don't want to know. Third of all, they favor people!!!! Their friends!!!!! Their family!!!!!! Ajkwcbjsjd literally gone mental!!!!!! DO NOT send your kids here period. Just follow this smart piece of advice and you are assured of having a great future. Would give zero stars if I could. Or maybe negative. Thank you for taking time to read this review and I hope you change your mind. OH and I forgot to tell u about the hygiene......nevermind because you REALLY don't want to here it or shouldi say read it. once again, thank u for your time.

Iman Academy SW had one student graduate last year with a full ride to Harvard, one attend Stanford for the summer, one with a full ride to Davidson, over 1 and half million dollars worth the scholarships for the 23 graduates with one receiving the Bill and Melinda Gates scholarship. What a great job from the student, parents, and staff. Who is Mr. Kashan? My children have attended Iman Academy SW for 4 years and there are only women as adminstration and they are doing a marvelous job! Maybe you are talking about a different school.

So far Kashan Ishaq had been the best principal of Iman Academy. I am not sure about others.

I hate this school. The teachers are horrible and really need to be replaced. And the Islamic studies teacher, Ms Mona, needs anger management.

I am really happy with the school! I have one child in Elementary and one child in High School. The new team of administrators is doing a great job. Br. Kashan left the school in May 2009. I am not sure why people think he is still at Iman Academy.

I have been quite satisfied with the school until the principal Kashan Ishaq left. He made a significant difference in the professionalism of the school and staff. I am not sure the board keeps on bringing new principals every year which is the reason why I pulled out my children from this school. I don't know who select board members but not of them has made any difference in educational system of the school. Every board member, president, and vice president must resign.

I have one kid in Pre-K and one in the toddler class who will be starting Pre-School next school year inshallah and I am very satisfied with the education my kids are getting at IMAN Academy. Mashallah the teachers are very kind, loving, and patient! They go far and beyond what is expected do so much for the students! Another plus is that the school is VERRRY Clean! I have visited the school at different times of the day and have always seen it in excellent condition!

I have been going to Iman Academy SW for quite some time. I actually transferred to a different school, but I just know that Iman is a good school. It's true most of my years there have been the best. The homework is lots but it builds good studying characterisitics. I'm now the hightest in my grade in my new school thanks to them. And they might not have the best teachers or academics, but they are getting better. And they build a good foundation for studying techniques. But it also deserves a good review over it's islamic environment for the kids. I give this school a thumbs up. :)
