Gersh academy has been the most beneficial place that my son has ever been too. He is now going on his third year here and always comes home with a smile on his face. For the first time in his life my son has actual friends.The field trips that they have are not only fun but therapeutic as well, with the equestrian program being his most favorite , along with his cooking class. These are the things along with the support of all his therapies ,that has been helping my child grow. His teacher communicates with me weekly, he has a blog that that reminds my child of his homework when he forgets what he needs to do, I mean what more can I ask for, My son is autistic and forgets and so many other autistic children. Gersh is our second home and we would not trade it for the world.

Gersh Academy is an AMAZING school! My son attends the Glen Oaks Campus, as a 6th grader. He started there this past September. He is a student in Gersh's "I Am I Can " program. My son has gone from a frightened and apprehensive child, to a happy child, eager to attend school. The Principal, Mrs. Gagliardi, the teachers, and the staff are all wonderful, caring people. The nurturing, therapeutic environment, has literally changed my son's life, and mine as well. We are very grateful to Mr. Kevin Gersh for having the vision for this program!

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.
