This is not so much a high school as it is a religious institution. There are neither time nor resources being used to solidify learning targets, improve assessments, or incorporate technology into the classroom. Families who want their children to devote their lives to the Orthodox Jewish lifestyle will be the most satisfied with this school, as that is the only priority. Families who are interested in their children's college-readiness,or awareness of social or political issues in the real world, will be disappointed. Families who want an individualized or differentiated education will also be disappointed as Ida Crown has no interest in the uniqueness of each student.
