Al-Arqam Islamic School and College Preparatory School Reviews

This school has amazing teachers and admin, that will strive to help students succeed. My child came from public school to this private school, and she immediately fit in. From being a shy child to leaving as a leader in her community. The Parent teacher organization is Amazing! They are organized and put 1000% in this school, helping daily from event to event while supporting teachers and admin in all their needs. I came into this school community not knowing anyone and I’m leaving it with people I know call my family! It may not look like a beautiful school on the outside but on the inside, you will find a community like no other!

Al-Arqam Islamic school and college prep is a very good private religious school. I like the experience and academic resources available there. I also love the different activities it provides for the students. Al-Arqam had proved itself, especially during the COVID 19 pandemic. They did an excellent job of transforming to online school very fast and quickly. I highly recommend this school for Muslims and non-Muslims.
I am very fortunate to be able to go to this school as the small campus allows me to have more hands-on learning, better relationships with classmates and teachers as well as a much better chance of getting into a better college in the future. I also get the chance to take classes such as AP's and IB classes as well.
While there is much good, there are also areas of improvement that may be made. The cirriculum regarding subjects such as science, or history have much room for improvement, as well as the credibility of teachers teaching the subjects.
