Hebrew Academy in Miami Beach is an amazing school. I had my kids in elementary, middle and high school. The school has challenging classes for students who can handle them like AP and honor level classes and regular level and help for students who can benefit from that. Each student is treated like an individual and the whole school feels like a family. The dual curriculum gives the students the opportunity to learn about their heritage and communicate in Hebrew while receiving excellent secular education. Students who graduate get into top universities in Florida, the US and Israel. Many opt to take a year of study in Israel's Yeshivot or other programs.
Hebrew Academy (RASG) is a great school with a long history of success which is evident by the great colleges 100 pecent of the graduating studnets are accepted to annually. Both of my children attended Hebrew Academy from pre-school through high school graduation, were accepted to fantastic colleges, and were more than prepared for college and the real world. Their Jewish heritage was nutured and developed and I am proud to say my children are Hebrew Academy alums! Go Warriors!
Definitely NOT an academic school. With a duel-curriculum, 'real' academics are pushed aside. Many students have learning issue not met, which creates an environment of stress and bad behavior. Speaking of behavior, many students are AWFUL. Particularly in the high school, where learning is a joke. Students are out-of-control; the stories my former student would come home with were shocking...until he brought videotapes of classes home! Not worth the money, NOT for anyone wanting an education--
