Phenomenal atmosphere for my children. Teachers are nurturing, well-trained and great role models. The school provides the Sephardic culture in a meaningful way. Small classes allow for close attention!

This is a very wonderful school. My daughter is so happy here. She is learning so much. She has a very good Hebrew teacher, and a very good English teacher as well. She has many friends. I am so happy she gets such a good Jewish education.

They have a good website that gives current news and updates: http://www.tashbartorathayim.com/ They have plans for growth including a new state-of-the art facility! I am so excited for all the students!

Torat Hayim really helped me. I graduated and was able to go to YULA and go right into honors. I made so many friends that I know I'll be close with forever

FInally...a school where they really care about every single child! What a fabulous education in both Hebrew studeties and General Studies. Graduates get accepted to all High School and Yeshivot and many have gone on to colleges such as Yale, NYU etc.. Great system and amazing staff. There is no other school for my kids!

5/5 excellent religious Jewish education for a price we can afford. This is the only school that didn't give me too much of a hard time for not being able to pay the full tuition.

This school is terrible and I suggest that you do not send your kids to it. They do not give enough homework, dont give the kids any essay writing or vocabulary skills. they mix 7 and 8 grade classes for all subjects when the materials are totally diffrent. Again my ratings are very low.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
