As a former student, I know this school expels students when their families are unable to pay tuition due to financial hardship. Several students in my class, myself included, were barred from attending classes until money was collected. Many families had to ask friends and people in their shul to help their daughters attend school. I was told to complete a promissory note if I wanted to attend school again. This is an embarrassment to the community and it seems that the administration has forgotten the basic tenets of Judaism.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
