I have 2 children who attended AIMS. We have been very happy with the instruction and the environment. Neither my husband or I know any Arabic, yet both children are picking it up. There is a very active PTO and lots of parental involvement. In addition to Arabic, there is a dedicated art teacher, a teacher dedicated to yoga and drumming, and a teacher who instructs debke--an Arabic style of dance.
