Excellent educational program - both Jewish and secular studies- run by a caring administration. The staff is devoted to the girls' success and happiness and the students are imbued with a pride in their accomplishments. A++

TAG is an excellent school which focuses not only on a truly superior chinuch, but also on the middot (character traits) and well being of each girl. We are extremely impressed with the professionalism and warmth of the teachers and hanhala -- a wonderful place to grow Bnos Yisroel.

I am a parent and I must say that the teachers are very very caring. I have had a lower achieving daughter and a higher achieving one. The mark of excellent teachers and principals is that someone like me is happy the way both were treated. The principals have an eye for wwho to hire too.

We have had 2 daughters in the school, our youngest is 13 and will graduate this year. We have always been impressed with the caring, knowledge and professionalism of the staff and would recommend this school to anyone. As always in education, it's important for the parent to be involved and interested, making sure that the child's teacher is best for her, that the classmates she chooses to be friendly with are ones that will have a positive influence and that she is doing homework, studying, etc.

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.
