This is a wonderful school. Classes are very small so students get much more individual attention than any other school I have seen. Most classes are less than 15 students. You won't find a better teacher to student ratio anywhere. My kids are treated with respect. They love their teachers, and even when they do not do what they should, the feel loved. The school feels like a family. There are a lot of male teachers which is good for the boys. Students spend half the day in religious and Hebrew classes. The other half is spent in general studies. I like their holistic approach to learning. They have a nice computer lab, and are beginning to get more technology in their classrooms. I can check grades anytime I like from my computer at home. The school is old, but it is safe and comfortable. The playground is big and lovely.

The school's tuition is very expensive for what you receive. The Hebrew studies are weak because grade 8 students going to yeshiva are behind in grade 9. The school has a widespread bullying problem that has been unaddressed for years. Class sizes in grades 1-4 are too large because they separate by gender in grades 5-8.

The school has a good academic program. The school has limited extracurricular activities. The school has a bullying problem that is ignored by the management of the school. If you are concerned about the safety of your child, don't consider this school.

Great school! A REAL Jewish community school! The school accommodates everyone within the greater Phoenix Jewish community.
