It is a wonderful feeling to know your children love school. My kids wake up every morning excited to face the day, learn new material, and see their friends. At Hannah Senesh the teaching is exceptional, and the intimate class sizes allow students to explore topics through innovative projects. The administration is tuned into every student's needs. In addition to general studies, students are taught Hebrew and an awareness of and responsibility to the world around them. The community is warm and embracing and over the years has become so much more than a school to us; more like a family. We feel lucky to call this school home.

Hannah Senesh is a warm and nurturing learning environment. Its teacher to student ratio is great. I have 2 kids in the school and I know they get the attention they need. The school accepts everyone regardless of affiliation. The general studies is top notch and the Judaics studies program have added an important dimension to our family (which we love). Its all around a great place to see my kids grow both academically and as people. I would recommend this school to anyone without hesitation

If you have a child who sings, you might want to consider a choir school. In the United States, most of these schools are day schools.
