I had 4 kids going to al-Aqsa. They started from Kinder and two of the them are now in college. I really did well by keeping my kids in Al Aqsa. My kids had great years here. What makes even better is that my kids are glad they went to Al-Aqsa, and my little kids loves this school. and they don't want to go to any other school.

Al-Aqsa Islamic Academy - If you believe you must send your child to a Muslim school this is the best of the worst school's in Philadelphia. Although their hearts are in the right place, they fail at almost every turn. Children succeed in-spite of the poor education provided. The Dean (churki) and the Principal (AbdulRahman) try, but one is focused only on the 'image' of the school and the money, while the other is just too old and tired to do the job. The parents are led to believe the school is accredited and the teachers are 'real' teachers. Neither was ever true, and its not true now (2010) I am a Muslim and hold no grudge against them and do not mean to cause harm to other Muslim's. I believe deep in my heart this school should either step-up or close down. Pretending to be what your not is a sin, it is a lie, it is deception. And currently that is Al-aqsa an embarrassment to Islam. Watch them during prayer times, lunch time, before and after school - get permission to sit in the school and observe - listen for teachers screaming at students calling them names, disrespectful children fighting with each other, not going to prayer. What's the good side: Ya they love your kids but your not paying for love your paying for education and adab you'll get little of both.

A full K-12 school with a Masjid on the first floor, the students will do prayer twice a day and Juma on Fridays, also a Hala food store is on the property. A full web site and eBoards too! All teachers are Muslim. Arabic Teachers are 'born-Muslims' and Arabic is their first language. Your children will learn Islamic studies and Arabic along with all the Philadelphia and State required subjects! Classes are small and fill up fast every year call them fast.

I know that many of us would love a better selection of schools. We have to use something so why not pick a good one. Your child can learn arabic and sit with muslims at this school. Those a pros. You may hear of cons. What does not have a negative and positive side? Not many things.
