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.

HAFTR is a student/child centered school which embraces a love for learning with a faculty second to none. HAFTR excells in its education standards and extra curricular activities.

great school. My kids are learning a lot and doing very well. I like the fact that the kids in this school get accepted to great colleges.
my children attended haftr from pre-k through 12 and are now thriving in college and law school and the education that they received at haftr was a fantastic foundation that has enabled them to be very successful in their post high school endeavers.
I love this school because every child is treated like a treasured individual!
I have three highschool graduates and I highly recommended this school.
