I have 2 children at RJA. We planned on only attending for preschool, but we've been here a few more years!. My children are thriving academically and socially and emotionally, and they love school! The individual attention they receive amidst a community of supportive peers is so special. We have found a diverse group of families and friends here, and we love rja!
This is a magical school. Not only is the general and judaic studies stellar, but my kindergarten child is already speaking Hebrew! Every child is cherished as an individual and my children love school and love learning. There's an indescribable sense of community, amazing and diverse families and much joy in our house! Worth every penny!
