    AYA is a great school. I love the academic challenge it provides and all the opportunities it has given me.

    This school is great. Its a safe environment for my children. I love their after school programs. They have great dedicated teachers. The parents are always involved and supportive. 98% of the graduates continue on to higher education. So far the school has produced Doctors Lawyers Engineers Educators Nurses and the list goes on and on. Most graduates end up with scholarships and prove to be outstanding students and citizens. The success of the graduates is a direct reflection of everything AYA has taught them. My child is graduating this year four more to go.

    AYA graduated from AYA. I love the school and the safe environment it provides for my children. AYA provides Honors AP and Dual enrollment opportunities. They have many after school programs (Judo Soccer Tennis Ahlul Quran Academy and Science Club Inventions). They have free after school tutoring. One of the best things I love about the school is that the whole campus is gated and they have a full time security guard.

    AYA is a great school!! The head of the school as well as the principle are very loving caring and understanding. Yet at the same time they are able to have a firm grip on the students. They implement school policies very strictly and always ensure they have a safe learning environment for the students.

    I have mixed feelings as a student. I think this school needs to challenge the students not only academically but "islamically".The staff and parents are very much involved. Extracurricular activities are very limited but if you're good @ soccer you might want to register for that. Also AYA is mainly a Arabic School so if you're Arab you're 'welcome'. Overall I think AYA is an average not too strict Islamic School. It can be boring at times but I enjoy the community and academic challenges it offers....... Did I mention? Many fun activities after January!!!!!!!!
