  • I agree with the first writer. This school IS A DUMP! I've parted from this school in 2001. Since then, I have heard and seen nothing but negative things about this school.

    My ratings for the facilities are below poor standards. The Health Department, Department of Education and the Fire Department need to perform a serious inspection of the future existence of this no frill school.

    The teachers are too relaxed! They arrive at school during the same time as the students. Either they are late or absent. Students are left in the classrooms without proper supervision.

    With today's ongoing demands in educating children, the PRESENT teachers are not serious about change and the challenges our children will endure. No one has a clue about educating children. The children are smarter than the teachers. Compare your child's writing to the teachers. your child's writing abilities are higher.

    Both board members and school leaders have come and gone. The good leaders have left and the circus clowns stayed. If you want to waste money, than send your child here! If you want a better school in this community, than create your own and leave the existing school officials out!

  • The staff are not properly trained or professional. They seem to be selfish as if they are more interested in themselves as opposed to the children's education. I think the students may even be smarter than the teachers.I would not recommend this school to anyone.

  • We were very closely associated with this school in the past. The children are the worst in behavior and discipline. The teachers are not trained or professional. This is nothing more than a day care center. Children will memorize enough without any understanding. Bottom line, due to short comings and narrow minded, unethical management the school kept going down hill and hopefully it will shut down soon. We have so much more to say. If you really want to provide Islamic education to your children remember this is not the place. If you have something else on mind, join the club.
