School Reviews

This school has been one of the best Islamic schools in NJ for a long time. Recently, over the past year, the school has been blessed with an amazingly active Board of Directors that has taken the school to an even higher level. I would higly recommend this school to any parent that would like to see their children grow to greatness.
