Levey is a special school where my daughter has flourished academically and socially. It has a nurturing, experienced, and caring staff, and the small class sizes allow for so much individualized teaching. I also love its pluralistic approach to Judaism and other religions: all types of observance are celebrated

Levey is a wonderful school for kids of all types and religious backgrounds/orientations. My daughter gets the personal attention and nurturing I want for her as well as strong academic skills. I love that she is learning, not only how to read and write (english and hebrew) but that she is also learning about being a kind, considerate, active citizen of the Earth and our community. She has fun, loves her teachers, and is growing in so many ways. It's also more affordable than other private schools in the area and provides financial aid to those who need it. If you''re looking at alternatives to your local public school, look into Levey!

Levey Day School is a great place for my daughter. She is getting a well-rounded education while learning the same important values I try to teach her at home. I''m looking forward to sending my son there, too, when he is old enough. They really encourage a love of learning and focus on each individual child.
