We have been very happy with this school. It is very small ensuring your child gets plenty of attention. Almost everyone knows one another--students, staff, and families. It's a wonderful and accepting community. Being so small, the classes are excellent at catering to all the kids's needs separately. Kids get extra challenges or extra help, depending on what they need. Another highlight is the Hebrew program. We are simply amazed by the language skills our daughter has learned from only 45 minutes a day of Hebrew. Highly recommend!

Couldn't imagine a better school for our son. Teacher ratio is 6 to 1. Amazing teachers, great technology lab, music program and they even have their vegetable garden!

The small size and community atmosphere at this school are the best. Students are accepted for who they are and warmly welcomed by all. They are encouraged to enhance and share their strengths, and they work towards their highest level of achievement. All of us enjoy the holidays and the programs that make everyone a star!

After a year in public school we found Weizmann. My daughters enjoy going to school each day. They are in a warm, caring environment and they have bloomed. Their learning has also blossomed. For us this has been a blessing all around.

I was concerned that the small size of the school would not offer enough options or stimulation to my children. I was wrong. The school has consistently met the needs of my children. The small size allows every teacher in every grade to know every student in every grade. A really unique feature is their buddy system. The older children are buddied up with younger children for certain playground activities through out the year. This is an opportunity for both children to grow and learn something about different people.

My son loves Weizmann and so do we!. We chose this school because of its very successful combination of high academic standard and high emphasis in community values. At Weizmann, you also see a true interdisciplinary curriculum where math, art, science, music, language, and other subjects are well crafted in a whole piece that exposes our children to learning in a very unique way. Children at Weizmann are motivated and eager to learn. The teachers are dedicated and caring. We are very fortunate to have found such a positive and joyful learning environment for our child.

Academics at Weizmann are top-notch. The small teacher-student ratio translates into individual attention and small-group reading and math activities. Teachers know the students well and can make specific recommendations to parents about enrichment opportunities. Teachers and the prinicipal are available for 15 minutes on the yard every morning to chat informally with parents and students. Teachers are high-quality, the principal is a warm person and effective leader, and parents are involved in the school in a meaningful way.

Amazing school with caring teachers, smart and compassionate principal, and involved parents. Small class helps tailor curriculum to each child's academic level. One of the best decisions I've made as a parent was to send my son here.

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.
