Never came across rude teachers- and I know all of them, most of them taught my children; they are very easy to work with. My children doing very well academically due to the low teacher/student rate. Added benefit- the students learn Arabic and Islamic Studies during school hours that leaves the weekends free for other fun activities. I would suggest to implement a better physical education (PE) plan, and eliminate/replace sugary treats that do no good to the children's health. Nevertheless, I would gladly recommend this school to families with similar values- it is well worth the investment.

The curriculum and student-teacher ratio is great. The environment is very friendly and also helps to concentrate on various topics outside curriculum.

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.
