It's a joy and comfort to send our son to Hatikvah. The teachers go above and beyond and are very attentive and helpful. This is a well-run school and the building is spacious, clean and organized well. Truly A+ from us and tremendous peace of mind as we start another school year. Now back to my empty house :)
Are those bad reviews posted by someone from board of education fighting to close this school? Because they sounds awfully similar and written in the same style. Besides, doesn't sound like real experience I've heard about from people whose kids attending this school. My son is going next year and I am excited for him. Don't post if you don't have children there, it is easy to uncover trolls these days.
It doesn't only teach Hebrew as extra language . It teaches more about Israeli culture !!!
I feel even one star is too much for this school. Teacher seems to have a lack of experience most of them recently graduate with really terrible attitude , they expect that kids most know everything from home . I feel even they have preference , they not treat kids equally . Principal too has the concept of my way or high way which is really un professional at all. No encourage for kids what so ever . I feel that this school is open for certain people that is why they make us suffer to take our kids from this school and save a spot for them. I wish that the board of education did not approve that wasting of our tax on that school .
Exceptionally run, clean, well-designed school. Extremely close attention is give to each student by all faculty and staff. Kids do not feel lost in the shuffle or on their own at Hatikvah. Very happy parent here!
Experience at this school is not pleasant. The parents have to correct the homework that is supposedly being corrected by teachers. They just check I guess if the homework is submitted but nothing to do with if the work is correct or giving any notes for the improvements to the children. No encouragement is given to the children or encouraging the motivated children. Resolving issues is terrible. I am not sure how this school is being ranked for 10/10. No structure is established in guiding or teaching children. Adminitration/ informing parents about who is working at the front desk is kept anonymous. Everyday someone new works at the front desk. Most of the school year they do not take children out side or play out side. parents are uninformed what children are learning. No proper measurements are taking in improving the children's ability/skills. So much of a gossip. There is only one way, high way or no way kind of attitude. Disrespect to the parents with the internal politics by the teachers and administrative/ supervisors. constantly finding strategies blaming parents to solve an issue or guilt trip them to hide their wrong doings.
Hatikvah has exceeded my expectations of my son's education. I have 2 boys in public school and the difference in the quality of education is mind boggling. I had heard how wonderful Hatikvah, but being a part of it has blown me away! My son loves his school and looks forward to going each and every day. The teachers, principal and administration are extremely accessible and helpful. The kids are learning and enjoying every minute of it. I receive weekly updates from the teachers of everything that they studied over the week. I could go on and on!!!
Hatikvah International Academy Charter School is amazing. The staff is very caring and goes above a beyond what we have seen in other schools. This multi cultural school is the real world today. My son is already asking to learn a 3rd language. My child is challenged daily by the teachers. We could not be more happy that New Jersey allows this choice for my child.
Amazing school!! My kids are thriving in this school thanks to individualized attention with at least 2 teachers in every class.
I choose to send my two children to Hatikvah and they both love going to school each day. They are academically challenged and the teachers seem to always know what they need. The only turnover in this school comes from teachers who prefer not to go the extra ten miles for kids or who don't know how. It's better than a private school and we're lucky to have it as an option.
My child used to attend this school. The current administrator has a high staff turnover rate. She does not under the developmental level of the students. I did not feel comfortable my child attending a school with majority of teachers having experience with less than three years. Once I found out my child's Hebrew teachers were UNCERTIFIED teachers, I had to take my child out of this school. I do want my child to be educated by uncertified teachers especially since it against the law!
Everyone goes the extra mile to educate our children! This school provides a top notch academic curriculum. I highly recommend this school.
Hatikvah International Academy Charter School is a wonderful school with the most caring teachers and staff. My children are able to work at their own level and have learned so much. The ratio of teacher to student is 1:11 which enables the teachers to push the students where their strengths are. The children are learning another language and the school is multi cultural which mimics the real world. They learn about all different cultlures and I couldn't be happier.
