    "Our school has three goals: help children have a close relationship with their Creator, be a success in academics and to be confident and comfortable with themselves. We treat our students with respect and encouragement. Our children then go on to colleges such as the U of Penn., Fordham U., Penn State, Temple, CCP to name a few."

    "My son attends Al Aqsa Islamic , While I appreciate the schools effort for this school to have been established in 1996 I feel that the overal administrative aspect of the school could improve. There are excellent teachers that I have encountered within the school, namely Ms Sakinah, Ms Halimah, Ms Benita to Name the very few. Many of the arab teachers and staff are extremely rude, and yell at the children instead of practicing sabr and gentleness. In addition, the students are unruly and unstructured. I appreciate Al.Aqsa providing the community with and Islamic education, but.for a.private education which parents are paying for I hope to see many improvements in the future inshaAllaah"

    "My daughter graduated from Al-Aqsa in 2007 and will graduate from Temple Univ. this year 2011. She's in the process of applying to graduate sch. In reading some of the other reviews, no, my daughter did not get the chance to participate in any extra curricular activities there. I made sure though that she had the after school activities and tutorials she needed. Yes, Al-Aqsa gave her the academic foundation and the islamic moral support she needed to strive for future independence. You see, if you the parent/student put nothing in to the academic support of the teachers, and this is anywhere you go, you will get nothing. On the other hand, if you put more into the support of the teacher/administration, your child will be well paid in his/her success. Stop complaining and go to work. Any situation is what you make it. Help fix whatever you think is wrong."

    "I am a parent of an elemantary school aged child, and I am appalled at some of the statements that disgruntled parents have made. For all of the parents that have complaints, are you of those parents that never show up for parent-teacher conferences? Are you one of the parents of the kids that cause disruption in class and can't seem to stay out of detention? Are you one of the parents that instead of support the teachers and administrative staff, seek to make their job more difficult? I have had nothing but positive experiences from this institution. Compared to other private schools, the tuition is reasonable. If a parent is involved in the educational process of their child/ren, they will have a positive experience at this school."
