The exceptional education aside, this school puts a high priority on being a good person- very early on kindness and generosity are taught and encouraged. The extracurricular activities starting at age 3, are vast and encourage physical health, comprehensive thinking skills, and commitment. The teachers are ALL amazing, caring and loving. You will be included as much as you want to be by the staff. Some of the parents may be different, and many speak exclusively Hebrew on campus- however I have yet to run into ''snobbery''.
