The Hebrew Day School is about the orthodox children. These children are raised in a religious family, however, they are quick to bully other unorthodox children with absolutely no remorse or punishment for their continuous mistreatment of others. The unorthodox children have an unfair advantage. Last year, two of my sons were mistreated and the Principle, Meir Cohen, who does not even deserve to be called Rabbi, did nothing to prevent the mistreatment. In fact, he accused one of my son and yelled at him. He is by far the most unprofessional, unethical, and immoral principle/person that I have ever met. Meir Cohen has many personal issues that prevent him from performing even at a mediocre level as a principle such as he loses his temper easily, he favors only orthodox children and mistreats unorthodox children, he does not know how to manage or lead his staff, he has no experience or education relating to children, and he has a poor attitude. The school itself is a complete mess and very unorganized. Everything in this school is exceptionally political.

Our son has had three excellent years at the school. His confidence has grown, the principles and morals of the school are exemplary and there is a warm, caring atmosphere. Emphasis is on academics and teaching kids to be good people. What more could I want?

This is our fourth year at Soille. The community is great, the teachers are TOP NOTCH. They truly care for the kids. There are families of all levels of Judiasm. You don't go to Soille for what is on the outside (building, playground, etc)- you go for what is on the inside.

Soille not only inspires the minds of its students but nurtures their souls and shapes their values for life. It gives them the confidence to be leaders in their community and the moral foundation to want to.

This is a woderful school. The academics are top notch and comparable to the best private schools in San Diego. The Judiac studies are very traditional, and respect is given to all Jewish dominations. Traditional halacha is taught, and children are taught to respect the teachings of their family, and understand the traditional teaching of the torah. Rabbi Weiser has been the headmaster for over 20 years and treats all children as if they were his own. The nurturing environment is fabulous.

This is a great Jewish School with values and a well rounded education. It has a welcoming atmosphere and I would reccomend it to all my Jewish Friends. They are very accepting of all levels of Judaism and I find this refreshing. They don't judge if your not Orthodox, even though the school is based on Orthodox.

Great School for families of alll jewish backgrounds. Need more enrichment. Strong academic discipline. Parental involvement on all levels but okay for working parents to do little.
