Our son has been going to Ilan Ramon Day School for over four years and absolutely loves it! Not only has he developed a true interest in learning, but he loves playing with kids across all grade levels. It's so nurturing and has such a caring staff. There is a true sense of community like one I've never experienced before. Parents are so supportive and there for each other, an extended family. We have made life long friends and I'm so grateful to have discovered this gem of a School.
