Wow, where can I start? well, this institution is so family oriented that all teachers know kids names even if they have not teach them yet. The curriculum follow Broward County Schools in addition to Islamic Studies, Quran, and Arabic. My Daughter recently graduated from this school, so that will be eleven years of education that I will be forever be in debt with this teachers. Thank you for teaching our children to live, love and learn through Islamic Values.
