I have been a parent at this school for 3 years now. It is more than a school, it is like a family. We feel a real sense of community there, and I know that the kids are in a loving and protected environment. This warm environment, coupled with the stellar educational curriculum offered and enabled my kids to really thrive. Both have started reading far ahead of their 5 birthday, which is impressive (and we don't really work on this at home). What I also appreciate is the attitude around learning in general that is fostered at the school. I don't know how they do it, but both my kids are truely excited about learning in general, and reading, and doing different projects. Almost makes parenting too easy! ;) Thank you Chabad Hebrew Academy!

Our kids are thriving in the nurturing environment at CHA. CHA has figured out the just the right mix of academics, judaics/hebrew and specials. We highly recommend this school.

We have been thoroughly impressed with the faculty, administration, and other students since we started in September. The school provides just the right mix of academics, Judaic Studies and Specials all in a nurturing environment. Our children are thriving at CHA.

Wonderful, incredible, amazing school - gorgeous grounds, Wasc accreditation and Judaics and Hebrew program that teaches your child to question and be a kind compassionate person. I have three kids at chabad - came for a site visit and never left! Love the community and families there.

We have had 3 kids attend this amazing school since preschool. Our first is now graduating 8th grade. I can't put our feelings about this school into words. It's a family and our kids have grown into beautiful people because of it. The staff is amazing and the environment even better. Go Blue Stars!!!

We just started this year at the preschool and have been thrilled all around! My favorite is that the energy on campus is of complete happiness at all times! Teachers and kids alike genuinely seem content to be there!
