The moment that you or your child steps foot on the campus you see friendly people. The children are very kind and you can always express your feelings to them. When I'm in class I learn many excellent topics that I have never known. The English class is excellent because the teacher knows what you should know and learn in life.

There is not a day that goes by that we don't express our gratitude for The King David School. We have two children in the school whom we have watched flourish and grow under the guidance of the Head of School and all the teachers at the school. Our children exhibit a sense of confidence and compassion and we believe that is in part due to their daily environment at the school. The school supports the values we teach at home. We have been very pleased with the curriculum and the school's obvious desire to continue to improve the overall education of the students.

I'm elated with the school. Two of my children attend currently (the rest will as they get older) ,and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the administration and faculty. My sons are growing and learning in ways that astonish me on an almost daily basis.

From the moment you step foot on the King David Campus, there is an unmistakable atmosphere of warmth and vibrancy. Our children don't walk into school--they run, with smiles on their faces, excitedly greeting their teachers and friends. The challenging curriculum is presented in a fun and engaging way that actively involves each student. When we volunteer in our children s classrooms, we marvel at the love of learning apparent on the students' faces. At King David, our children are also developing a strong value structure that is helping them grow into good people, who care about others and the world around them and who are already making good and moral choices in various aspects of their lives. The King David School is not just a place where our children go to school. It has become a part of our extended family, our community, and a trusted partner.

A school of great values. Excellent administration. Very strong teachers. Quality kids. As new administration continues to execute its vision, the school will grow and develop the reputation it deserves. Jewish culture and teachings are perfectly in line with a community school - open to all aspects of Judaism and teaches Jewish values and religion in a way that supports and strengthens every type of Judaism.

King David offers our family a wonderful place for our children to learn. The academics are excellent--our child receives individual attention because of the small class sizes and works at 2 years above grade level in some subjects! But, even more importantly, the school cares so much about instilling the values we want for our children. Our new head of school, Mr. Ichilov, is a transformational thinker and leader. The school validates the religious practices of each family and embraces all Jewish movements--a true community day school. Thank you, King David!

I am a new parent to the school this year and have been delighted with every aspect of my children's education. The school is built on strong family values and compromises no aspect of the education to ensure that the children behave with respect and kindness to one another. We love it!

Great school that embraces progresive learning within traditional values. We left the school for a year after a disagreement about the school's direction and long term mission. It was a mistake but we returned to a highly unified and well guided institution. Class size in the lower grades is an ongoing issue that will be resolved shortly. Administration and teachers are carring and nurturing. Our children are happy, enthusiatic and genuinely enjoy school. A great value relative to other private school offerings and vastly supperior to public schools.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
