- At AGE, we believe that technology-equipped classrooms are essential for producing 21st Century learners and leaders. Besides providing students with access to a plethora of resources, technology also enables teachers to differentiate instruction and meet the needs of each child`s learning style, whether they are visual, auditory or kinesthetic learners. Accordingly, AGE provides its students with one-to-one technology devices. Students in grades 2 through 9 use Chromebooks in school. Students in grades 6 through 9 are provided with Chroembooks for individualized usage at school and at home.

Great school ! The teachers are really caring. The administration is very professional and really cares about the children. My son goes to this school and has made many friends. He is developing into a fine young man that I am proud of. The teachers are good role models. I have looked at many Islamic schools and find this one, the best in the tri-state area. The have a great STEM program and put a lot of emphasis on building character and strong leaders for tomorrow. I know many people that travel over 20 miles to come to this school. I have met parents who come from NYC to bring their kids because of the education that is provided. I would highly recommend this school. Move to the area if you need to.
