    "Like many schools it has both it's ups and downs...as far as the academics are concerned, I feel they expect too much from the child without putting much effort into teaching the child. The amount of Arabic and Quran my child has learned is significant, and would have to say I'm largely pleased with how much emphasis they put on those subjects. However, my child as not yet started the first grade and is receiving homework as though they were already in grade school. And the weekend packets of homework the child is expected to complete are atrocious. I remember when I was in grade school no homework was given on Fridays, and if we did have any it was made to prepare us for exams the following week. A child should not be expected to complete homework while still preschool. My child came from a previous preschool where it was entirely play based and those were my expectations when I enrolled them in the "Montessori" portion of the school. The school isn't Montessori based at all and instead functions like a traditional classroom with some Montessori aspects included."

    "There are few schools in the Valley that allow for a safe yet educational environment especially for the Muslim community in Arizona. ACA is one of them, and lets children enjoy an education on par with public schools, if not greater, without all of the bad environments, drugs, and peer pressure of the public schools. There is no other school that is K-12 in which students can learn about their religion, learn arabic, hear the call to prayer, pray, give talks, and stay with other Muslims in the valley. The gym is a very nice addition which is great for community events and for playing in. This school has small class sizes and leads to strong bonding between classmates. Its overall a great school."

    "I am a student who has studied here for over five years. Nothing beats the environment. It's amazing to be able to find such a family-oriented safe place in today's world. In the long run, despite the fact that the education could be better, the environment is really worth it. Love this place!!"
