I was a new teacher last year, and I was really scared about my first year in teaching. But, the principal (Sister. Rim) set me up with a mentor, and she gave me so much guidance and confidence in myself. My mentor also did a great job in helping me throughout the year. I can't be more happy teaching at another school. Now, mashallah, our school is growing quickly, and our students are wonderful. I also feel that now, I have gained more experience teaching these 2 years than I would have anywhere else. Thanks Sister. Rim and everyone else at the school and parents and students for everything!

Since August 2012, under the new leadership, this school has truly improved tremendously. The teachers are becoming more qualified, and they are receiving the training they need to become more proficient in their teaching. The school has also added ESL services, and the entire environment has completely changed. It finally feels like a "real private school" of which we are proud to send our children. I just love it! And, my kids are learning so much, and they have shown tremendous growth in the past 2 years more than the previous years combined.

Stay away unless u want your kids(s) to become parrots and learn only to memorize without developing the skill to learn and understand.

this school does not teach very well. The teachers don't pay enough attention and the students don't get the education they deserve.

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.
