As an Ida Crown Jewish Academy alum I can attest to how amazing this school is. Ida Crown did not only prepare me academically but it also helped me grow in my connection to Judaism as well. Beyond that, ICJA provided me with a wealth of extra curricular activities including basketball, yearbook and even an in school newspaper. One of the most special aspects of this school is the community that it created for me and that I still feel extremely connected to 13 years after graduating. I would highly recommend this school!

There is a high teacher-to-student ratio which allows for a lot of personal attention. My child is receiving an academic education as well as a foundation for life.
