This is a fantastic school in so many ways from its high teacher to child ratio, cohesive student body, involved parents and fantastic teachers. All this allows the children to learn in peaceful environment where the children are often working at a level that's a grade ahead of other schools. Our family is not Jewish and we have felt very comfortable and happy at this school.

Aleph-Bet Jewish Day School is a vital part of the community of Annapolis. The enriching Jewish values are taught to the children in a loving environment, and teaches them to be productive citizens in the community at large. There have even been children from other faiths that have enrolled and thrived in the school. As a Jew, I am proud to support ABJDS.

The best school, the teachers have a way of making the kids know that they are loved. I have a seventeen year old that graduated and a seven year old current first grader. Both my children never wanted a day off from school. The children feel loved!! I love being a volunteer also!!!

The teachers are so devoted to education. Even though Alpeh-Bet is a Jewish School, it welcomes students who are not Jewish. The school stresses education, community and charity. Because the school gets no government funding, it takes a lot of work to keep it funded. Kids thrive in Aleph-Bet!

My school provides students with differentiated instruction in a nurturing environment. Students feel loved and valued for who they are.

Good student to teacher ratio. Nice projects to work on. Lots of one on one attention. Greeted with a friendly smile by teachers in the morning. Sometimes teacher to parent communication has gaps.

Great school. small classes with a 1-9 teacher ratio. The children learn and explore and go far in math, science and cultural studies.

If you are looking for a school where children are encouraged to excel in learning, wisdom, social skills, Aleph-Bet is the school to choose. Children at Aleph-Bet develop a love for learning within a loving Jewish cultural context. Learning Hebrew and Judaics right alongside core courses develops a well rounded student. As many studies have shown, learning a second language early can only benefit a child. The Aleph-Bet staff are more than just educators--they are family.

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.
