Al-Ghazaly High School Reviews
I have two of my kids enrolled in this school and after looking at some of the bad reviews I felt obligated to write a review in defense of the school that my kids attend. You can obviously tell from the way and language of some of the reviewers that they don't belong to any decent school,let alone to Al-Ghazaly HS. For me hiding behind a fake name it takes away all the credibility that I would normally give to a reviewer. The most outrageous one so far,a reviewer claiming that they had a soccer field and the owner is cheap that he sold it! The school is rented to start with and the soccer field belongs to TSF a soccer club adjacent to the school,not to mention that the school is not owned by an individual or a company,it's run by the IEF a non-profit organization with three Islamic centers as stakeholders. I am not saying it's a perfect system,all what I can tell you don't listen to haters or lovers,just experience it yourself.
Very nice school. They know how prepair students for colleges. Great teachers that cares about students.
Yo all these negative reviews are mad fake, I legit have no idea where I would be without this phenomenal school I'm proud to call my second home. I know so many people who have graduated from Ghazaly and have such amazing careers. My sister graduated from Ghazaly and is going to Med school soon, inshallah, and she always tells me how lucky I am to be in Ghazaly. The alumni who wrote negative reviews have no idea how hard every single person in this school works to educate us and help us succeed in life. If you're thinking of sending your child here, he will definitely excel in his studies and will make a bunch of new friends in the first week. And I save the best for last, the teachers. How can I write a review on how amazing the school is without mentioning the teachers. Wallah most of them are better friends to me than the kids in my class. There's not one class that's boring or hard for me, and that's all thanks to the loving teachers who truly want only the best for you.
Wax the courts. And remove ief ( Br.Asad). Stop suspending for petty things. Relax about hair and uniform always getting mad for stupid stuff
Very good environment and great teachers who care about their students. It is a great school teachers are qualified and committed.
I've spent the last three years in this school, and little did I know it would be a place to remember! The students here are so cool, the teachers are extremely cooperative, and the curriculums are hard to beat. It is seriously a fun place to be, and I am glad that I chose Al-Ghazaly to be my high school.
I wish their was more diveristy and more help regarding college readiness. The school lacks certified teachers. Most clubs are non existant. Over all it is okay.
I like how the teachers always strive their best to help the students in any way possible. They help the students not only with school related problems but give advice to students with any problems they have that are bothering them. I would like to see new books being put in the school because sometimes good conditioned books are not available there.
Horrible very poorly funded very bad horrible I wish I didn't go here but hey it is what it is right.... Teachers are o.k mostly uncertified except like 5 or 6 . The guidance counselor DOES NOT HELP WITH COLLEGE unless you are friends with her family
i feel like its my second home.
A school nurse barely even exists. There's an unarmed security guard and there could be announcements for emergencies (But it's always fake, just a test). There isn't really anything unsafe that happens in this school other than the school being unsanitary and most students being filthy (which can make you sick.). But if a real emergency ever happens, about half of the school is probably not going to be prepared but a real emergency never happened before.
Some students are great friends, some teachers are pretty good, and it's still considered an Islamic School. However, majority of the students doesn't seem to have such an Islamic behavior. (For example, filthy cafeteria, disrespect and talking before Salah, bathroom hangouts and ditching... etc) Majority of the teachers are ok but not all of them are good. Overall, if you really want to bring your son/daughter to an Islamic school, I guess there's nothing better but this school.
They sale one single different food everyday with a few snacks so there are barely any options and most of the food doesn't taste that great. There is no such thing as "something healthy" in this school and I'm not always 100% sure if all of the food is halal. (It should be and probably is though) The cafeteria is worse than disgusting but it's mostly majority of the students' fault for not knowing what being a "clean Muslim" is. (Then some teachers sometimes blame it on the few students who are clean.)
It really depends on how lucky you are. A few teachers are extremely good, most are barely ok, some are pretty bad. Most of their teaching styles are either boring or ineffective. Some have really good knowledge while others barely have enough to teach (But that doesn't mean they 100% don't know how to teach). Some teachers/staff are very rude in terms of communicating with students and some are pretty good. Some appear friendly, some are not. If you're expecting a good experience with teachers, it is mostly bad but there are some good teachers in this school.
There is Science Olympiad and Model UN. (The only 2 activities that is sort of legit). The rest.... Not even worth mentioning.
I will absolutely miss the school and the opportunities it gave me. It may be described as a little sheltered but I think that was necessary in my personal growth and development.
Many alumni come back and tell us how easy their university classes are because of the challenging nature of their high school environment.
