How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Both campuses are old but maintainance is done on them occasionally. The teachers MUST do extra-curricular activities as it is part of their contract. There are some teachers that spend MORE time doing that, than teaching full-time! There are some incredibly dedicated teachers but most unfortunately have left do to Administration and Superintendent problems. The school is now hiring first year teachers, probably to save money, and with it comes inexperience, inconsistency and incompetance!
How would you describe the social activities available for parents through this school? Are there parent-teacher organizations?
Quite good but the MAJOR focus is on Islam-based activities as the Board of Directors and Trustees are all devout Muslims.
What advice would you give to someone considering enrolling their child in this school?
Make sure that if your child does NOT speak nor write Arabic and does NOT understand the religion, to get a tutor immediately! It counts heavily in the students' marks!
