School Reviews

I have children in Elementary, Middle and High school at the Hebrew Academy. The academics are at the highest level, both in the Judaic studies and in the Secular studies. I am confident that my children will excel in whatever higher learning they choose, be it religious or academic. I believe that it is mainly the love of learning that is being imparted to them that will do them the most good in their lives. They feel happy in school and that is key to their futures. The co-curricular programming includes music, drama and art. There is an onsite Sunday soccer league (AYSO) and a year round use pool. There is also a summer camp program that is world renowned. The Hebrew Academy has won two Blue Ribbon Awards and is WASC accredited.

A wonderful Jewish Day School! Lovely campus; high academic standards; exceptional Jewish studies; and caring teachers, administrators and parents. Our daughter, Shoshana Rachel (class of '09), attended high school as an out-of-town boarding student and she loved it! Parents, teachers, and students are very helpful and committed to the welfare of the dormitory girls. A Big "Thank You" to all! - Lisa Hawkins
