    "Hope with new school chairman they will revamp the whole system and bring in qualified and ethically sound teachers who can work for all the students and not just for the board members affiliates and students who give lots of donations to the school. Teachers keep grudges against students especially the Vice Principle of middle school is a control freak and hypocrite she works for her own benefits and plays politics a relative of board member. Principle has to listen to her even if he disagrees, Children are not learning ethics or any islamic teachings, and with the quality of teachers they hired with so low salary is just horrible.Arabic teachers are not certified teachers and they differentiate with non arabic students gets verbal with them, School needs an uplift they charge for every little thing even for yearbook, other than collecting lots of school fee. They have a very updated, sophisticated, and latest system to collect the fee and donations they need to do the same towards a high quality school and teachers including Vice Principle."

    "My oldest has been going to IFS for 5 yrs now, and my youngest for 2 years. The past two years ever since Omar Qureshi and his dedicated assistants have taken over, the school has completely changed for the better. I am very happy with how they are managing the school. I love that my kids are performing 3 grades higher on all of their standardized tests but are not overwhelmed with homework when they come home. I went to a fully packed Coffee hour with the Principal on November 21st and was very impressed by his presentation. I want to thank him and his staff for doing such an amazing job presenting all the facts in a clear and concise manner. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a solid foundation for their kids."

    "I have been going here for over a little over a decade and I'm absolutely proud. The sense of community and family is very heartwarming. The principal is a mentor for many and truly knows how to take the school to better places. I will always be thankful for him. The parents are very involved and there has been a lot of spirit in the air with the Spirit Shop. Our academics alhamdulillah are improving with AP scores being higher than schools such as College Preparatory School of America last year. This is not a school where all you do is learn and forget life, you grow spiritually in the deen and mentally in knowledge. I would recommend people to send their kids here because it truly is one of a kind. The masjid it has is great too."

    "This school year (2012-2013) has been an awesome school year for both students and parents. Our new principal, Omar Qureshi, along with his two really dedicated assistant principals, Ghada Fahmy and Saadia Shariff, have really done an outstanding job! They have implemented so many useful programs and have really worked hard on the curriculum to bring our students up to higher standards in education. We have more after school programs and tutoring that has been such an enormous help to our students. The parents too have done an incredible service to the school and have been fighting for the rights of teachers and have been there to support the staff whenever they can. This year the IFS community really felt like a big family and I really applaud the hard work, determination of each and every individual who has helped. I only see a brighter future for our school and I really do hope that the community can pull together and get that new building completed. Thank you to all of the dedicated staff, teachers and parents that have worked so hard this year! You ALL are outstanding!!"
