Stay AWAY! My son attended Pre K , He didn't learn anything, the staff is rude and don't do thier job! My son use to go to a very good daycare where he excelled, all of a sudden when he came to this school his behavior changed for the worse, no interest in learning, and they tried to tell me that my child needs special services. They don't do thier job, they let the kids do whatever they want and thier is no commucation between the parents and the school. Honestly, it's not a real Yeshiva, still suprised they around Bottom line, don't send you kids here you will REGRET IT!

Lost my child on the bus one time. Very unorganized, staff is rude and incompetent. Don't waste yu time. My son's behavior changed for the worse thanks to this so called yeshiva.

My daughter went to this school. This school is very bad. Don's send your children to this school. The staff is very rude they dont care about children at all. This school is only business they only take your money. Not professional at all they make 12th graders to teach a 7th graders. Teachers is not certified. Very dirty. No AC when outside is 100 degrees.

I am so proud to say that I am attending Be'er Hagolah. It's a great school. I have been searching for other schools, but I cannot find a school that's accepting like this one. BHI is amazing. BHI is slowly making me into the Jew I want to be. I can reach higher than I ever reached before with BHI's help. The goal (Torah) is my building, and BHI is my ladder.

Mine two daughters where going to this school. A soon as they moved from a kindergarten to a first grade we start having problems. Me and my wife where told that our kids (and they year and half a part) have a different kind of learning disabilities and require special education service. My kids where scared to go to school because they where bulled on a bus by a students and pressed by principal and a teachers. If teacher would fail to do their job I would receive a phone call that we having problems with your daughter - she isn t ready for school, come and pick her up On PTA meeting they never addressed us with a problems they only start to occur when my wife refused to get special service for my kids. In a middle of the year my daughter was transferred to a lower grade. It was very dramatic for her. My children start having bigger problems than just educational they started fighting and cursing.

What this school does is truly amazing. They treat the student and staff the way all institutions should.

Good for spiritual and emotional well being and self growth - not as strong in academics, such as science, mathematics, history, economics, and note enough strong programs like music, gym, art. Teachers were caring and helpful, but not as strong in knowledge and experience. Overall, a 6.5 out of 10.

Be'er Hagolah is a quality school committed to the long term and essential goals of education. Besides for maintaining a rigorous academic program, Beer Hagolah provides a rich extracirricular life geared to the 21st century student. This enables the whole education of the child.

This has been the best school that I have ever attended; I've gained great self esteem in myself, friendship and knowledge of my Jewish heritage. The beginning was rough because I was nervous about making new friends, but the school instantly accepted me with love- they gave me individual attention, and you can tell that, the teachers sincerely cared for me. I became very close to my teachers and learned new social skills by attending many religious activities. Overall, I see that I have transformed from a confused, scared, shy teenager to a healthy, more improved person; I find that I have learned so many leadership qualities, and nothing else has prepared me for the outside world. The school has changed me for the positive not just academically- but emotionally, spiritually and mentally, as well.

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 student 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.
