this school doesn't care about its secular education or its students it doesn't deserve to be open
Wonderful school! However, it is not coed. It is a boys only school.
As the parent of children in four different high schools, I give the Mesivta the highest ratings. I cannot comment on the quality of the library, space, supplies, etc., but can comment on how my son has progressed. He arrived with behavioral issues why do you think we sent him to dorm four hours from home? The administration and staff completely devoted themselves towards his growth academically, behaviorally and emotionally. The discipline policies (trust me, I know the details) are far from amateurish they are well designed and well implemented. As for academic studies, my son is being prepared to enter the post-high-school institution of his choice, Yeshiva or college. There is a bias against secular studies in most top quality yeshivas today. My sons in establishment Yeshivas have this attitude too. I ve found the Mesivta to be extremely responsive on all fronts academic, religious, secular.
I've had 3 boys at Mesivta and have been very impressed with their learning. The religious studies and general Jewish environment is simply excellent. The secular studies are on par with the public schools if the student makes it a priority and if the family of the student makes it a priority.
The overall history of Orthodox Jewish Religious schools has proven that the secular learning is on par or even better than their non-religious counterparts. The point of an Orthodox Jewish School is to attempt to create Torah Scholars and students whom the Jewish Community is proud of. We don't really care that the student didn't achieve an 'A' in all his General Studies subjects. Of course, we are thrilled if he did. The emphasis is more so on the religious aspect such as Chumash, Gemora, etc., which is why most of the day's program is geared toward that.
No library; insufficient space, supplies, and low priority for secular learning; poor facilities for boarding its students; severe behavioral issues and amateurish discipline policies; extremely weak academic studies program.
