My children have learned so much in this school. The teachers and principal are wonderful and caring. They truely want what is best for the students. Each child gets the special attention they need. Many enrichment and support programs address the needs of diverse learners. The specialty programs include music, art, computers, library, science, gym, and allow children to shine in many ways!!!

HAFTR has a bullying problem that is ignored by the school. Derech Eretz (respect for others) is not taught by HAFTR in any meaningful way. I also find the english portion of the curriculum very lacking. I am glad I took my children out of HAFTR. They are much happier at their new school.

The staff and administrators are attentive to the childrens' needs. The teachers differentiate their instruction based on the strengths and weaknesses of each individual child. My children truly love HAFTR and are eager to attend school each and every day! This love for learning reflects the way HAFTR makes my children feel confident in school. As a parent and a teacher (in a public school in Queens), I can't ask for anything more!

HAFTR is the best thing that has happened to my children! From the amazingly dedicated teachers to the unique way that they allow each and every child to learn. The teachers on HAFTR's staff become part of your family. I have never met a teacher there who did not make my child feel special. Almost as though they are only there for you. They foster a warm, educational, and caring environment for all children to thrive and succeed. The friendships and socialization that my children have built and made in HAFTR have impacted them positively. They have more self-esteem and respect for others, No two children are the same, I can see that from my own three children who attend the school. If I had to pick my one most impressive aspect of the school, it would have to be the fantastic principal. HAFTR is by far superior to all other schools because of the specialness of our principal! She is truly amazing! She takes the time to know each and every one of her children. She knows everyone by name, knows who are siblings or cousins, knows the needs of each student including their strengths and weaknesses. The children are excited and motivated to do their best because of her. Her knowledge and expertise makes HAFTR's curriculum as advanced and successful as it is.
