Islamic Foundation School Reviews

I have a special connection to that school, though I would never go back and am glad I am out of high school. I started at Islamic Foundation School when I was in KG and finished at the 12th grade. Academically, the school tries its best to excel, and there are some teachers who truly care about their students’ wellbeing. However, I cannot deny that sometimes there was favoritism when there was someone in trouble. I resent the fact that there isn’t much funding or attention to the artistic side of students as there was only two art classes. The arts weren’t celebrated as much as the academics, therefore not allowing artistic students to be celebrated for their true potential. Overall 7/10

IFS has been the school I have been attending for the past 15 years. Being at a private school does have its perk but also its share of downfalls. One good thing about this school is that it gives the students an opportunity to be involved in clubs at a much more concentrated level due to the smaller student population. the teachers over here also genuinely care about you and have your best interest at heart. However one downfall of this place, is the lack of courses given to students that wish to pursue a field in the liberal arts. Overall, my time at IFS has been a great experience and I feel like I have received a proper education.
I have been at IFS for about 10 years-from 2-8th grade and then 10-12th grade. The teachers here are decent there are a couple really good teachers the rest are okay. The people at ifs are okay depending on how long you have been there, it’s kind of exclusive. I usually don’t eat the hot lunch but I’ve heard it’s pretty good, better than public school lunch. Overall ifs is a decent school but I would much rather be at public :P
