It's been a pleasure and an honor to work at this school. As an American Muslim and a lifelong educator, this school provides the best of both worlds: Islamic and professional. I've worked at a variety of private schools here and abroad. Every school has its issues, but BHA excels in many ways: resources, excellent student body, supportive administration, great, involved parents, an excellent sports program, advanced, college-credit courses. BHA's got it all

As an alumni, having spent 13 years of my life at this school, I can honestly say it was the best experience I have had. I would not be the person I am today without the great teachers who supported us and lightened our way. Not only were we taught a great work ethic, we were best prepared for college, with most of my graduating class leaving high school with 2 years of college and a scholarship. Excellent Islamic school, that provides the best of this world and prepares the students for the next life.

BHA is a great school. My son and daughter greatly enjoyed their time at Brighter Horizons. They made friends that they are still in contact with. They had great teachers and learned enough to get into university on full scholarships. I can highly recommend this school.

A great environment for young Muslims in this political climate. I went to BHA as a kid, and it helped me build my character from the first day on!
