    "MCS has/had the potential to be a great school, an ideal for many Muslim families in the DC Metro area. It is sad to see that even the latest review on this site was from 2012, number of students being around 121. However, we are in 2014 and the students are under 70, for a school PreK to 12th grade! If you just had some real independent parents who have nothing on their mind but the success of the school/students then you would see a difference. Money issues, staff and administration would all be resolved. Parents would all work for the common good of the children. No one else should have any business running the school of this size. Parents have been fooled by "others" that we can make MCS better, by better management, better website, increasing student enrollment, better administration, better adherence to bylaw.... all failed!!! Show some purity and work for Allah only! Things will get better, iA."

    "Parent of children currently attending MCS but we plan to go elsewhere really soon. Academic stds are poor, teachers are so-so with an exception here and there. Only this year started quran class...strange for an islamic school. The school can not retain good teachers and administration changes constantly. The school claims to be islamically "non denominational"...but clearly is NOT.....I know of many parents whom have taken the kids out b/c of this reason. I'm just concerned that my kids aren't learning like they should be. I've had experience at another Islamic school and it was an amazing school academically....so yes I do have a comparison. The 4/5 star reviews are just not true. I sincerely hope the MCS improves as it is a blessing for the community BUT lets face reality that our children have to go out in the real world and they should be prepared academically!!!!!!!"

    "As a proud parent of 2 MCS graduates, I have to say that my children were blessed to have attended MCS. Yes, there has been ups & downs,for example we had to hire a private math tutor one year but that was a small price to pay to keep my child in an islamic school where he could learn alot more than just Math, science,... I put the pros & cons of sending my children to MCS on a scale & the pros wieghed a lot more. I felt that the damge that public school could do to my children would be irreversable, so we stayed thru it all & do not regret it. There has been many changes this year that makes me belieave MCS will continue improving day by day. Many people are working hard to see that happen, including the new principle."

    "It is great to see teachers and parents talk about MCS. I believe, the school has improved since the beginning to the year. Parents and staff must make it their priority to help the students to successes. I know some parents and staff who come to school from long distances, I personally moved from another state so that my three children obtain their education in Islamic environment. I am very happy with the school and the teacher. It is apparent they believe in the Islamic values and when things get rough they work through the challenges. I had an opportunity to talk to some of the MCS alumni; they were happy with their experiences. In fact some of the alumni, who finished their Bachelor degrees, are coming back to MCS seeking teaching positions."

    "We must support MCS regardless. I am a parent and have all my kids studying at MCS. I see many dedicated teachers and staff working hard to get the school in its right tract and improve its academic quality. I think this could happen if we support them as parents. I see a bright future for them since there are now new people involved. MCS is a survivor and will improve every year. I am proud of them for their hard work."
