Ms. Ohood has a very thorough curriculum and she
pours her heart & soul into every activity. Our son's language and ability to express in Arabic improved dramatically over the course of a year. From an emotional aspect, the children feel
comfortable in the classroom environment and as a result our son is more at ease with himself.
It’s obvious Ms Ohood is well versed in curriculum development. She customizes the courses, the activities and there is a goal behind every session. Nothing is random or adhoc. We placed our son in two other schools, and Al Kawthar is unmatched. We drop off our son knowing his safety is the best hands. It’s almost like we are leaving him with another mother. Ms. Ohood and her staff are very caring and patient. Highly recommend

I've been meaning to write a review for
sometime. I'm glad I didn't get a chance earlier coz I'm truly blown away with my sons progress now. My son started at the center when he was 5 and a half years old going in
knowing the arabic letters .
* He started with his age group. The principal noticed that he knew the letters instead of keeping him there and telling me it would be a good review for him ( that's what happened to my friends son at a different School and the kid got really behind) Ohood the principal took him and a couple of other kids opened a new level for them and she started teaching them!
*Hands on principal.
* She has the homework posted online so there is no confusion to what it is, or missing doing the H.W coz papers are lost or missing
*I had to make a choice between going to a close center 10 min drive or driving an extra 40 miles and wake up an hour and a half earlier on Saturday to take him to Al kawthar center. I'm sooo glad that I did the drive ! After a couple of months my son now is borrowing Arabic books from the library center to take home read and return the next Saturday .what an achievemen
Note. Don't get me wrong .to get him to that point I was putting in the time as well . It was a team work . It takes two to tango ;)
I can not say enough about Ms.Ohood and her staff. My sons have been attending Al Kawthar since September 2015. They go twice a week for 2 hours each evening and they have made significant progress in a short time. My oldest son is stubborn and can be difficult to work with at times but Ms. Ohood has NEVER given up or been phased by him. She instead has showered him with patience, persistence and positive reinforcement. He now reads and writes and while he is able to recite many Surahs from the Quran, we have opted to focus more on the meaning and understanding than just reciting. Ms. Ohood had been happy to fulfill our request and I have truly seen a difference in my son. Now he is much more interested and asks questions about the meaning of the Surat. We have had a busy year due to travel and other school obligations yet the staff has been so accommodating and worked tremendously with our ever changing schedule. My middle son is very quiet and at times I wasn't sure he was retaining what they were teaching him. However, I was amazed at how much he actually knew. Prior to coming here they did attend another Islamic/Arabic school but he had not gotten much out of the Arabic aspect of it. Since beginning Al Kawthar he know recognizes all of his Arabic alphabet and their sounds. He writes them and is able to answer simple questions. It may not seem like a lot but it is quite significant for us given where he started. Bottom line, Ms.Ohood and her staff are amazing. She loves what she does and she genuinely cares for each and every student. Her passion is evident and she really focuses on the needs of each child, which speaks volumes to me. Her staff shares her passion and they make learning fun. My youngest will be joining his brothers in the fall and I am excited to see all the growth to come.

I would like to congratulate the founders of Al-Kawthar Learning Center for establishing such a beacon of light in Orange County. I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with Sr. Rabia and Sr. Ohood and have great respect and admiration for them and their work ethics. I strongly believe that the children in their care are very lucky. I pray and wish everyone at Al-Kawthar Learning center much success in their future endeavors. May Allah Ta'ala bless you was-salaam,
