Mazel is a home away from home for our family. The warm, caring environment coupled with values- oriented education is exactly what we were looking for! The parent community makes you feel part of a team! We could not be happier!
Great school. I highly recommend to anyone. They have great combination of Jewish education and at the same time picking up innovations.
Committed to the ideals and values of progressive education, Mazel Day School provides an engaging environment for both teachers and learners. As a part of their committed staff, it has been a pleasure watching the school grow and develop its commitment to staff development and providing for an education of the whole child.
Mazel is one the best things that happened to my family. Caring teachers, warm and loving environment make this school a unique place. High academics in combination with values, respect and love for learning makes me feel good as a parent and makes my children happy students. Mazel is home away from home.
Never been happier with the education that my child receives in this school. Individual success is extremely important in this school. Kids are not just Leopard for the test but for success in life.
great school, the best teachers. Kids actually cannot wait to get to school. the values that are taught and the environment are priceless.
Mazel Day school is the premier Jewish day school in the South Brooklyn Area. They provide a top notch education in both scholastic and Judaic studies. Mazel caters to their community by providing Russian language education.
Mazel is a unique, wonderful school where we sent each of our 4 children and recommend to others almost daily! Mazel is succeeding in a truly difficult task that our community is struggling with a LOT - being robustly and apologetically traditional and innovative/forward looking at the same time.
Mazel is an excellent school. My son had been thriving in it both academically and personally. I love the focus on progressive education and character building.
I am a teacher in this school and very much enjoy working here! It is a very warm and pleasant work environment. The administrative team works with each teacher to guide and direct them to success. I am learning a tremendous amount from being a part of the Mazel Day School team.
My child blossomed in this school! She loves everything about it: teachers, friends, nurturing atmosphere. Thanks to this school she reads & writes in 3 languages: English, Russian, Hebrew and does not think there is anything extraordinary about it.
I have been a Mazel parent for almost 5 years now (my oldest daughter started attending Mazel Day School in Kindergarten and is now finishing Fourth Grade and my youngest will start Kindergarten there this September). I have to say that we as a family have been very happy with Mazel Day School on many fronts. As a pretty non-observant family, we have been concerned about pressure to observe more, but that has not happened. While the children learn about Judaism and religious traditions, there is no pressure on children or families to do anything they don't want to. Academically, the school is very strong - I can see by comparing notes with friends whose children go to even highly regarded public schools that what my daughter is learning is above and beyond the public school curriculum. Socially, Mazel Day School is a very nurturing environment. Because the class size is quite small - no more then 18 children for two full-time teachers - each child gets plenty of individual attention and teachers are able to adjust instruction to each child's particular strengths and weaknesses. I am very happy that I found Mazel Day School for my children.
Mazel Day School is the best school that you can ask for. It has a teacher to student ratio to a maximum of 1 to 6. The lessons are individualized and the teachers, reliable, qualified and personable . The teachers and faculty of this school are devoted and caring. The environment is nurturing, clean and the food very nutritious.
It is the best school In the area that combine Judaic and secular studies. Excellent teachers, great administration, home like environment for the kids. My 2 kids love the school and I have piece of mind every morning when sending them there.
Our daughter has been going to Mazel school since kindergarten and is in 4th grade now. She has been blossoming ever since. The amount of individual attention is parent-teacher contact is superb. Even school is religious, there is never any pressure and children from ALL levels of observance (if any) are welcome at Mazel.
amazing school, all teachers are very attentive to out kids. Parent community is very supportive and involved. Our kids enjoy coming to school to interact with their friends and learn new and exciting things!
We drive our daughter 10 miles everyday for 3 years just to make sure she is in this school. It's says a lot given we live in the neighborhood with one of the best public schools in Brooklyn.
I am a parent of a child that has been attending Mazel Day school since Pre-K and is currently in 3rd grade. Mazel is a phenomenal school where you really are getting tremendous value for your money. The children are getting top notch education in modern small classrooms with teachers, principal and administration who really care. In addition the principal and the administration of the school really seek feedback from parents and react to it. Mazel Day school is the best education that money can buy for a child in Brooklyn. Great secular education, enrichment classes and Jewish education. I am extremely happy with the school and would recommend.
Mazel Day School gets 5 stars from me. I am very happy with the school and the results are evident in my children, both on the educational level and their character. This school is special because it concentrates on getting high academics results (my 4th grader scored all 4's on State Exams), as well as nurturing and refining a child's character, helping them to become a better person, teaching them to care and respect their family, friends, community and the world they live in. Other pluses: excellent teachers, small classes, renovated facilities.
This school is really the best-kept secret of Brighton Beach! The way in which the children are treated is really something special. The teachers are attentive, professional, and really know how to help each and every student succeed. I am so lucky to have this school for my children. Besides a Jewish Day School option in Brooklyn is hard to find - so having this one right in the neighborhood is a blessing! Check it out!
