School Notes

  • City of Knowledge was established by a group of Muslim parents who wanted their children to receive not only a sound academic education, but also proper grounding in the precepts of the Muslim religion. They also wished to nurture these children in an academic environment away from the pressures of the larger community with persuasion to reject their differences. They wanted children to value education and to learn moral values as taught in the Quran. The first philosophy of the school was therefore established by these founders of the school. As the school began to take shape, the philosophy was shared with teachers, parents and administrators. Modifications have been few and for the most part represent refinement of the original philosophy.

School Reviews

Ever since my husband and I decided to have children, we agreed we would give them a good education, both spiritual and academic. We found this education at City of Knowledge (COK). This is a school I wish I went to. It has the perfect ingredients to make young children into well-rounded young adults ready for society. We moved to Pomona so our kids could have a better future at COK. My elder son started school at age 2.5 years old, still wearing pull-ups. Within the first week he said he was done with the pull-ups and was a "big boy." He also learned to make new friends very quickly. Since then, we have seen so many positive changes that have left us speechless. Not only is he learning three languages at school, he is also learning: poems, rhymes, stories, problem solving, puzzles, good manners, working well with others, treating animals with care including sheep and chickens and so much more. Recently, the school has provided us the opportunity to enroll him in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) afterschool program in partnership with the Youth Science Center. We are very excited to have this opportunity. I think he is growing up to be a compassionate and intelligent boy for his age, which is quite an achievement for any child. We plan to enroll our younger son in Fall 2016.

City of Knowledge was one of the most enriching students -- with an extremely supportive environment, excellent academics, and one of the most wonderful administrations. I ended up pursuing multiple graduate degrees and have excelled academically. I give much of the credit to my foundations built at the City of Knowledge.

I''m a graduate of City of Knowledge. They offer a great curriculum (challenging elementary and middle school; honors courses; AP and UC-approved courses for high schoolers) in a wonderful environment. I had a great experience and went on to one of the top universities in the nation. I highly recommend it!

Both of my children went to this school for five years, after which time we moved out of state. The best thing was that the principal knew every student by name and cared a lot for every child. The educational part was geared towards the students ability with students being guided towards their goals in a non-pushy way. Thanks to all my sons teachers and the principal, my son graduated high school after 11th grade without a problem. Thank you for caring.
