A true pleasure all around, my kids are excited to go to school every day and it's been a blessing to our family and community in large. The teachers have an amazing sense of mission, devotion, and such special love for the kids. Our children learn values, core values that are extremely important to who they are and to their future. Staff is welcoming and friendly and will go out of their way to help and support. I think that the Hebrew Academy represents the future of education and are a lighthouse to anyone who seek a true, honest and life changing education for the future of their children and to the success of their community.

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
