Hamza Academy is blessed with amazing students who are the reflection of great parents.  To complete this circle Allah (swt) has provided sincere staff to serve them at Hamza Academy who are concious of Allah (swt), and if one slips or forgets there is always someone who helps to pickup or remind.  In my opinion this is Hamza Academy in a nutshell. What a blessing to be a part of this.-5th Year Staff Member
