I am a student at crown heights yeshiva. This school is a horrible school all the tea gets are haters when they see that your not doing anything they give u work to do without u even asking!!!! The rabbis are just annoying and is so mean its crazy. My mom and dad had to call the principal and ask them why I was complaining they just said that in this school this is what we do and I was like mom I do t want to go to this school then they asked me what school do u want to go to? And I said to bnos Malka academy!! I said that because my friend goes there and she absolutely loves that place!!! So my mom took me out of that jail place and u went to bnos Malka academy!! And I was there for a month and all I can say was just "wow" that taught me every thing in just a month I lo e that place!!! The rabbis where much nicer and Always helped me when I asked him a question!!!!! And our teachers are amazing. So ya that's all I had to say!! And all u parent out there that are reading this send ur children to BNOS MALKA ACADEMY!!!! Xoxo, somebody

Great school I owe many of my accomplishments to the work ethic and leadership skills fostered here. I attended many years ago but I only have fond memories.

what a wonderful school. My children couldn't be happier. The teachers are great. The principal is very nice and always available to listen and help. There are lots of extra-curricular projects to enhance the academic program. I would rate this school A+

Early Childhood grades nursey to pre1a/kindergarten: A new principal was hired for school year Sept 2009 to 2010, then yet another takeover, new principal for Sept 2010 to 2011. The new principal hired new English teahers that are inexperienced and lack common sense. There is no curriculm, pacing calendar or any structure to the organization. Kids are getting wild & hurt. While English education is lacking the Hebrew is strong. Students start reading in Hebrew within 2 months, very impressive Hebrew Program. Not enough to keep my child there. Children need to learn how to read, write & perform in math. Principal Nancy Schwartz states if you wanted them to get a good education why do you send them to Yeshiva. She worked and is bred by NYC Department of Eduation for 25 years and does not believe a Yeshiva could offer children a good educaiton other than Hebrew. A lot of horse play takes place, there is lack of supervision and education. :( Administration will not give parents a class list due to concern we talk to each other.

This school is one of the best private schools in Brooklyn. It is rather small and the kids get lots of attention fromm the principals and teachers. I as a parent see how much my child has gained since joining the school two years ago. He had gone to a school in our neighborhood and just wasn't doing all that well. Since coming to Crown Heights Yeshivah he seems to love learning and is doing really well in school. What is most important to me is that he loves going to school.

My son went to chy for seven years. I had to take him out ,I do not recommend this school. The children are out of control and the principal and teachers do not know how to control them.
