Honestly, it’s a horrible school! Teachers are way below average compared to public school. I advise you to not bring your kids to this school. They care way too much about dress code and The education is way below average. Teachers don’t care about the students, they just want money.

This is our second year at KAA. We are very pleased with the hard work of the administration and staff. KAA is fairly new but the school is striving high with its Academic feature and professional staff to help the students excel in their studies. We would definitely recommend KAA to our families and friends.

I’m a girl in sixth grade. So the school is beautiful. We have alright teachers and the students are great. They have great learning resources. BUT... the dress code is very strict. We can’t wear anything but skirts. We can’t wear hoods. We can only wear black shoes. At the end of the year, the teachers pressure us and cram exams in the last two weeks. They don’t have an organized curriculum. They change it every year. We can’t get used to one way when we switch to the other one. Overall, it looks nice on the outside, but on the inside it’s not very organized.

School always chooses locations that are too far away . Learning community thing is a bad idea it is always cramped with students and teachers. School is great BUT they care way too much about the dress code we can’t wear hoodies only the ones that the school make you pay for .the only good person is mr sarsour who the head chef he is the Funniest guy ever never acts different when parents are by . If your student want to learn with no Interruptions then this school is not the one for every class the teacher is mostly Quieting the students down .
