    The Arabic teachers teach in Arabic. The Quranic classes are taught by scholars. There is a 100% placement for graduating seniors into colleges.

    Best Islamic school in Brooklyn also the oldest. Prestige in Islamic learning alongside feeling like you are apart of a family. Facilities need some love but otherwise it's great!

    Absolutely love this school. My daughter just started pre-k this year and can already say the alphabet sing Islamic songs as well as speak new Arabic words we don't use at home. The teacher's are thoughful and caring breakfast and lunch are fresh. My child is excited to start her day knowing she's going to school here. She is not forced to be veiled at a young age and the teacher's are understanding of the various conservativeness of the parents. The administrative staff is VERY understanding and not hounding either. Homework is fun and not difficult but instead allows the child to use what they learned at school to independently complete the task alone at home--or at least this is the case with my daughter. The teacher's first language is Arabic although one of the focuses in the classroom is an English class. My child comes home with Arabic English and simple math homework that she enjoys doing and remembers practicing during the day. I am absolutely thrilled she is apart of this school!

    Honestly do you want to know about this school? Its the worst school any parent could send their child to. Me as a staff member hate it and soon wont be apart of it anymore the leaders in this school are discusting they way they treat students and handle situations. The school its self isnt even sanitary honestly speaking. And half of the schools actions they could be sued for so many illegal things happen in this school and they try to hide it. Horrible school which disappoints me alot coming from a muslim society.

    This school is beyond amazing from academics to behavior to the teachers and students. You are treated and loved like family there you dont just graduate with a diplomia but also a family that will forever be with you. They are 100% devoted to their students eventhough at times their methods differ from others they always have the students interest at heart. Great school love it

    i am a student in al noor school that is an excellent and very well achieving school. their teachers are hard working and leaving no student behind. no period is over without all students understood the material that has been taught. its prinicpal is very hard working and cares for the safety and achademis levels of his students which are his second children as some might say. i strongly recommend this islamic school to anyone who is looking for an excellent and succcessful future.

    i am a student in this school and i think that this school trys very hard to sucseed and reach very important goals and they do for many but they can be a little to nosy and if you do something wrong once evan if you improve greatly they will accuse you for eveything.

    This school's a great school. Only problem; they a e cheap. Really cheap. They charge you for every thing. Book's after school & othe stuff. While we pay from $4 000 to $10 000. Still it is a very good school. But the teachers are not all excelent they do not teach some thing's that come to the ctb. Oh well.

    The school is the best as far as personal academic attention. No student is left behind and always gets the extra help they need. Teachers are always willing to give extra remedial classes or tutoring. The school promotes great habits and qualities that make the students stronger and more confident individuals. definitly recommend it

    The people in that school are so mean. The teachers discipline for no good reason.I wouldnt reccomend this school at all.I have been in this school for about 4 years and i didnt learn anything at all i missed out on so much . After that i wen tot a local public school and i learned a lot compared to this school. I graduaded and now im in one of the best schools in brooklyn. They are very strict in behavior it is okay in the arabic learning cycle but other than that-nothing at all. Im no critic but this school better straighten up.

    The Vice principal is very active and involved in the students'educational and spiritual endeavours. Not to forget very helpful and always willing to lend an ear. Science is taught very well in comparision to my Public School up bringing. Improvements are constantly being made inorder to provide academic enrichment. Teachers are very caring.
