There is something very special about this school. Any school can enable students to get into good colleges, but this school helps to develop the character and morals of each child. Teaching morals and ethics is part of the curriculum, but the school takes it a step beyond and it is engrained into every part of the day. My son is thriving both academically, socially, and culturally. We are not especially religious but extremely cultural. This school fills our need for our son to be raised with Jewish history and morals, but it doesn't take away from the extremely high general studies that he will need for high school and college.

I absolutely love this school. You feel joy the moment you walk in and see the children's smiling faces. Academically the school prepares kids to get into any private or public high school, typically in honors classes. The new state of the art green building is amazing! The school is a self esteem factory with children performing in plays and singing from such a young age. My son is going to be preparing for his bar mitzvah thought the school since we did not want to join a congregation.....what better then for us to be part of a community and he get all of his Jewish education during the normal school day.
