The best modern Orthodox school in America. The kids speak Hebrew, learn General Studies, have fun and enjoyt themselves. Our teachers are the best!

North Shore Hebrew Academy was founded to provide an Orthodox Jewish education based on Torah and Mitzvot. Its purpose is to serve Jewish children, guiding them toward an observant Jewish life and encouraging them to continue to study Jewish and General Studies at Torah institutions of higher learning. The Academy's goals are to: 1. Develop in its students a world-view in accordance with the Torah, cultivate positive attitudes toward Judaic values, and identification with the Torah way of life. 2. Imbue a love for the Torah, the Nation of Israel, and the Land of Israel. 3. Develop the ability for independent study, encourage individuality, and cultivate the talents of each student. 4. Train students in the highest standards of general studies so they will function successfully in American society. 5. Place special emphasis on Hebrew language instruction so that all students will attain proficiency and fluency.

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.
