    Honestly this school is amazing. The teachers are very patient when teaching the kids. the school teaches the children about Islam. Islam and Muslims are often misunderstood because some Muslims are "violent'. Many often think all Muslims are violent but most of them are not. Many claim that they are Muslims even when they do wrong actions like what happened during 7/11.

    We are American converts and just moved into the community a few years back so we went to AIS to place our kids in the school and were very put off by a women who claims her name was Elizabeth although she is clearly not from the US and doesn t understand the American school system. She was very rude and turned us away from the school. She misunderstood the way things work here as far as services and transportation are concerned. To avoid the hassle of dealing with her we decided to go with a public school. We are so disappointed and upset as to why people like her are still there misrepresenting AIS. It s their loss.

    Annur Islamic School is the very first Islamic school in the community. To the general public the non-muslim teachers are well-informed about the attitude morals and way to hold one self at Annur. As an alumni of this school I feel more than welcome there. Every school has rules that are wished to be followed all that matters is that it's respected and listened to.

    Just because there are non Muslim teachers doesn't mean the school is falling apart. The non Muslim teachers are teaching subjects that have no influence on the religion and they are certified teachers. They also have a lot of respect for the school and Islam they follow the rules and codes. And as parents people should also try to help the school by teaching their children at home what it is like to be a Muslim and obedience the school is their to help them learn but they cant have a 100% influence on the kids if they are treated differently and are given less restrain at home and outside of school. Also the school is working very hard to get every thing back in an organized and clean manner the best way they can.

    AIS is a great place to wok at. You will have the opportunity to grow and make a difference in people's lives. The great thing about AIS is the challenges that spice up the day. This what keeps me going and motivate me to make a difference. I wish that I will be rewarded in life and life after. Thanks AIS for this opportunity !

    As a parent at AIS I'm grateful to have my children attending it. They were discovered. Thanks AIS Principal administration and teachers for all the hard work you have done.

    Annur has crumbled. The place is falling apart... It's filthy with a rat infestation its old & the hearts are darkened. Alumni are not welcome Which is clearly the entire way of the new & improved administration... Non Muslims teaching our students makes this school not much different of an environment than public schools!!!

    They need to work on disciplining the kids. Because they misbehave and get away with it. Its frustrating just to be in the same hallway with these kids. Im sure there are good students attending also however they need to start addressing their issues before it starts getting worse. The difference between AnNur and other public schools is the Islamic values that are to be instilled into these kids thats should be the main focus of this school because it will aide in the behavior problems. AnNur was a respectable school lets see what happens and where this school will go.

    There are many issues in the school. Not a healthy environment. Hypocrisy is what the administration and BOD practice. December 19 2009 Post is made by the "leader". So much for tooting your own horn! Not a recommended school.

    An Nur roxxxxx!!!!!! Mashaalah this is an amazing school that teaches proper Islam and helps children understand their religion and love it and want it rather than force them to memorize random facts and make them think of their religion as dull adn strict

    This is my first year teaching here and I am having an amazing experience. The kids have excellent behavior as compared to Public schools so this gets rid of the barrier of misbehavior taking time out of quality learning. The Leadership is also great. We have a new principal this year who is experienced with Islamic Schools and is an amazing human being. Character is at the top of our priorities in a world now without it. Our Motto is Striving for Ihsaan (arabic for Excellence) Excellence in all aspects of learning Islam Quran Arabic Math Science English History Physical Fitness and Art.
