Great school where teachers do their best to help students with their course load, studies, homework, and college process.
I went to Razi School for about 7 years and my experience was great. The staff has always been kind and looked out for not just me but all their students. I've met amazing friends who I still consider close friends to this day. Although the classes seem small, I felt it gave me the opportunity to learn better. When applying for colleges the new Guidance Counselor, Sister Batoul was very helpful when filling out applications and more. I truly believe that is a great school and has drastically improved throughout the years!
I've been here for 10 years and honestly this place sucks. Don't come here. This place is lacking in many ways. There are NO activities and clubs whatsoever, there are basically no sports except for basketball, and they don't give LUNCH, and we do nothing in gym. Honestly, I should've just gone to a public school because what's the point of being in an Islamic environment that isn't Islamic AT ALL. Sure, we have to wear scarves and long skirts, but do you really think that means kids will ever change? HELL NO. The highschool teachers are AMAZING but the other ones are just average. The diversity is mostly just Arabs and Desi people. The tuition is the most ridiculous part for such a crappy school. I really wish they had music here, but sadly they don't because according to some people in Islam, music is haram. I wish they had sex ed and I understand that it's a very controversial topic but it's worth being discussed so we don't have to learn it elsewhere. Don't go here, please.
The teachers are not interested in the success of students who do not look like them. The campus is very large and there is access to a variety of classes. I also appreciated being able to pray and fast normally while at school. I was at this school from kindergarten to 6th grade and then for a few months in my freshmen year of high school. I think I got a pretty good first hand exposure to ant-iblackness without realizing it. I'm glad that the school I went to after this was mostly black even though it wasn't as up to par with campus and curriculum the way Razi School was.
Razi School is a school of passion. Students here drive each other to do the best of their capabilities. Because Razi School is so tight knitted both the students and faculty are a huge loving family.
This school is complicated. The administration is quite hands off. There are few teachers that genuinely care, but are not treated with the respect they deserve by the administrators.
Worst school ever!! Horrible lunch, teachers with no degrees, and no extra curricular activities. This school is a joke compared to other schools. You will leave high school to enter college and still feel like you're in the second grade. The lunch consists of pasta and soup which is served every single day and tastes absolutely disgusting. We barely go on any trips even if we offer to pay out of our own pocket. I'm glad I left this school last year and I am learning so much more than I ever did.
The school has no extracurriculars, none. Don't even hope for it, none.
The weak link of this school is mostly the administration. The teacher are either fine or great and the students are okay. It's specific staff in the administration that really bring the school down
There is no bullying or drug use in this school. It could be a healthier school when it comes to the meals.
I've been in this school for a very long time. It has some good teachers.
Not a great school but not terrible either. I wouldn't recommend this school.
It isn't as selective as it offers an opportunity to the Islamic community to evolve and excel to become fruitful individuals in society
Going here made it hard to maintain a high average because of the academic levels. But it helped me prepare for high school.
Lots of teams and tutoring.
There was barely any fights, bullying, and acts of disrespects between students. The school was very safe.
