The Al Muntazir Schools have earned the reputation of constantly evolving and striving for excellence in the provision of quality of education to the children, regardless of age, gender, race or sects. For the past 30 years, the Al Muntazir Schools have spread the light of education to children from the ages of 2.5 to 18 years.
