I agree with the prior review - the school has undergone tremendous and positive change over the last few years. The academics are on par with any other school in the area and the extracurricular - fine arts, sports, etc. are top notch! The students are more than prepared to meet the rigor and challenge of top universities. The entire school is now excited about the new High School which will open next fall. Posnack is really doing amazing things!

Our family has been at Posnack for the past 11 years. there has been enormous growth in the past few years, very noticeable in terms of elevated academic level, professional development of staff, changes in curriculum across the board. There are amazing things going on at the school. They are now building a new High School to be able to house all the great things that happen there. Check it out, your kids will flourish at this school

I spent many years at David Posnack, both as a parent and an educator. I can honestly say that so much of what occurs in this school (the middle school particularly) is inappropriate for children. The teachers are not professionally developed in a consistent and appropriate manner, parents tend to have more influence of who teaches and what gets taught than the teachers themselves, and worst of all, they are more concerned about their reputation than they are about providing an excellent academic education. It is truly sad that so many children's academic needs are not being met. I will say, however, that if your child is emotionally needy and has a difficult time adapting to a large school environment, this may be the school for him or her. The teachers do seem to care about the children in terms of their emotions. But if your child is very bright and needs to be challenged, stay far away from this "school".

David Posnack has exceptional academics starting in kindergarten... More science in elementary school than any private school in South Florida!! Warm, nurturing environment. State of the art technology, smart boards starting in grade K and in Hebrew? Judaics as well!! Middle School using tablets!! Athletics, too all on one amazing campus in Davie. Will merge K-12 in Jan. 2011!!!

It's small and loving.The teachers are caring and dedicated. The children learn what is necessary for state certification as well as Judaic studies and Hebrew language.

No response from Director.. ever... Worse private school.

I have two children in this school and we could not be happier. My daughters had a wonderful Kindergarten year (twins) and we loved both of the teachers. The staff is wonderful and the Judaic and secular curriculums are equally top notch. This is a warm, loving environment that caters learning for each child. I can't say enough about this school!




- a parent
I have three children at David Posnack Plantation Elementary and we absolutely adore this school. The teachers are top notch and the Judaic curriculum is fantastic.My 8 year old is already speaking Hebrew!We highly recommend this institution to anyone looking for a Hebrew Day School-or any private school.



- a parent
DPHDS is a warm school where every child and teacher know each other. Both the Judaic studies as well as all other subjects have been very good for our kids. This is the perfect school for someone who is looking for a loving, small environment without all of the pretentious behavior that can sometimes come with a private school education.
