Al Aqsa Islamic Academy Reviews

By a Former Student on

This school is plain disgust, I had to attend this school cause my family  was moving and this was the only school in the neighborhood.  As I entered the building I had a feeling that I'm entering a nasty pit. I got my locker number and I went into the locker room to put my things away, The locker room is a disaster. Kids are running around wresting and beating each other up. The classrooms are smaller than a college dorm and the teachers don't teach at all. Due to the teachers not teaching, the children are blowing up the classroom - playing, half sleeping, eating, on their i pod, lip locking etc. . If the teachers do teach, they teach below level courses, for example if you are in 7th grade they'll teach you 5th grade material  Not to mention the bus rides - kids are screaming, crying, hitting each other, jumping around the bus seats, running up and down the bus aisle. Children curse, scream at the teacher if they want to and not to mention the roof of the classroom - which leaked every 2 hours with a bathroom above the classroom...  I got out of this school in less than a month and now I do home schooling. If I could name anything could about this school  -  wait I can't... Please if you are thinking about making your child attend this school, DO NOT - It is a garbage school and a very bad influence.
