School Reviews

  • Recommended May 12, 2014 - Being at KSA makes me feel safe and secure. My teachers understand me and help me learn. I always feel supported and cared for. I will really miss being here when I graduate. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended April 14, 2014 - KSA is a wonderful, nurturing school. Children are taught with their own individual pace in mind. The Judaic and Secular curriculum are both outstanding. This learning will take each student far in life---learning 21st century skills. Highly recommend this school. - Posted by Parent
