I have been here for many years. the only reason that I can say that I like this school is because of my friends. Not every person in this school is nice ., like other schools you have those people who think that they are better than you and consider themselves "the cool girls" but you just Have to know who to be around .. the food is realllt good tho
Al- Ihsan Academy is a diversely populated school, With people coming from a wide spectrum of backgrounds. This school also has some of the most dedicated teachers who genuinely care for the welfare and academic success of their students. An overall great experience socially, and academically.
Decent but not good enough. Many teachers do not care for the students and as a result teaching is at its lowest in this school. School has very limited opportunities such as AP and clubs.
Review Al-Ihsan Academy
Great Islamic environment. Great community to be around. Mediocre in academics. Barely an AP classes. Teachers try to provide well education for students. Poor with academic opportunities. Teachers gossip about other teachers and students. No clubs for high school (at all). No after school programs or out of school courses (for high school). Excellent with school culture. No sports at all (both boys and girls). Barely any resources besides computer room which requires teacher consent. No library. Very diverse school. Students aren't to ready for college due to lack of resources and opportunities. Safe school. Good food. Barely any facilities.
Overall ratings: 2.84/5
Not many extra curriculars but its alright.
The experience wasnt one of the best but wasnt the worst either.
The teachers at Al-Ihsan are honestly some of the best. Some, however, are rude and unapproachable but this is only one or two. Most genuinely care about their students and go out of their way to help students even if they arent from that subject.
Not supportive on any ideas. Difficult to approach.
You'll find the occasional cockroach or dead rat just recently found in one of the classrooms.
What happens when inexperienced teachers collide with a small cramped building? A pretty bad school. That's what Al Ihsan is. It barely has any upsides and a bit too much downsides. As a student who has been going to this school for more than 5 years, I can honestly tell you readers that you should really avoid sending your children to this school. The academics are not taught properly. Islam is rarely upheld here where even the teachers and office staff gossip and talk about everyone. Bullying is pretty prominent in this school and the victims don't even tell the teachers because they know the school never does anything. For God's sake, how are you going to put a 70 something year old man as the doorman. If something where to happen, what would he be able to do? Probably nothing. This school doesn't even have a proper guidance councillor, not to mention the absence of a student council and the dictatorship like authority the teachers and administration have over the students. Rarely do students get to put their two cents in before getting shut down. Nobody listens to the students, excluding a few of the teachers who actually realize that the school has NO IDEA what they're doing. This school literally has its priorities backwards and it's not funny. This school should only be an elementary, junior high, or high-school only. They honestly can't handle all of the students that they have, basically biting off more than they can chew. All in all, this school is pretty bad. It would be better to send your children to another Islamic school.
The teachers aren't horrible, however they aren't amazing either. Many teachers have not had prior teaching experience and have no idea how to teach material when they're thrown into a random subject area that they don't even specialize in. Teachers back bite and talk about other teachers with and without students around. Some teachers are very obnoxious and act like the students MUST 100% memorize everything that they teach or else they fail.
Everyone cares for each other We are all brothers and sisters. Also my school is a non-bully zone.
This school for the most part is okay. I have made amazing friends , i have gotten closer to my religion, and i have learned a lot of things i haven't even heard of before. But something i do not like is that the school is pretty strict, and the teachers are okay in general.
Most of the teachers in my school are pretty nice. They care for students, their teachings are great, and their style of the test are pretty easy. During class we learn a lot of things.But sometimes teachers can be very intimidating and scary to even participate in class.
There are many extracurricular activities open for junior high school students but few for high school. Junior high school students have after-school activities ready for them every school day. Highschool students are not as lucky. For highschool students there is currently one club called The Book to Movies club and a STEM club currently being organized by two highschool seniors. The Book to Movies club has been consistent for four years and draws in many highschool girls. There is no administration support in running or funding either of the highschool clubs.
Al-Ihsan Academy seems like a safe school to many but when closely examined one can see that it's lacking in many aspects. Few students take drugs but the ones that do often do it on school grounds, during school hours. They pose a threat to their own safety and that of those around them. Bullying is prevailant and is often overlooked by the authority figures. Often many students do not turn to the administration when they're being harassed or persecuted because they claim that nothing will be done about the situation. There aren't any school safety services that I know of but the nurse does her job well. She goes beyond what us required of her when ensuring that the students are healthy and cared for.
The teachers at Al-Ihsan Academy genuinely care about the students and try their hardest to ensure that the students pass and understand what they're learning. The teachers often know about what personal problems their students may have and try to accommodate their students the best that they can. The teaching styles of teachers vary in that some prefer more involved techniques such as discussions and group learning while others prefer to give their students notes and online lessons for them to learn from. A major flaw in the stystem is that often teachers are assigned to teach classes that they are not skilled in due to vacancies. However the teachers still try to teach those classes to the best of their ability and often ask for advise from previous teachers. Many times the overall quality of the teachers is seen as less then what it actually is due to the few harsh, inconsiderate, or flawed teachers, but a majority of the teachers show strong dedication in teaching and anabling their students to succeed.
Review Al-Ihsan Academy
In this school everyone is like a huge family. The people in this school have always made me feel welcomed and loved. It's also accepted each and every one of their studehts for who they are. The administration and staff care a little too much about its students. In addition to that they try their very best to provide us with rare opportunities. For example some of the students, if they've got all their credits, can graduate a year early in the 11th grade from high school. This school has a very friendly environment and though it lacks the many clubs I would've loved to be a apart of, it's an amazing school filled with special people.
There are many things that are great about this school. From its early graduation opportunity to its advance placement programs. This gives the students an opportunity to graduate early in 11th grade. This is not given away in many schools. They also have AP classes, such as AP English, AP Global History and AP U.S History. This saves great amounts of money in college.
The staff and teachers in this school are extremely caring and soft- hearted. They care for you just as they would care for their own child. If a student does not understand something, they try their best to explain. If that does not work, then they would stay after school to help that child.
