I find it hard to believe that more Jewish families aren't availing themselves of Hillel. I am a graduate and was blessed with an amazing group of supportive teachers, friends, families. I entered public high school with a decided advantage in most subjects. I repeatedly benefitted from the grounding I received in Hebrew language, as well as all of the Judaic studies. It's a school that was intended for families who come from any background, though it helps if you feel you want your child to know what it means to be Jewish and to be proud of it. In my day half of my class was observant. I was not but later I decided to learn in a Yeshiva . Most if not all alumnae are successful upstanding members of their communities. Definitely worth considering. Very small classes right now, so tell your friends!

Hidden gem of an elementary school. Probably the best elementary science program in the country! Very strong academics and traditional Jewish program. When my kids transfered to a very fine local private school, they were 2 grade levels above the others in just about everything! Very welcoming of families with non-orthodox backgrounds.

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.
