It is a great academic environment, as well as offering a nurturing and caring environment and staff of professionals.
The education is superb, the school is warm and nurturing, the teachers are top notch and the kids are terrific!
HAFTR provides the absolute best secular and religious education in the country. The teachers and staff are top-notch and the children are fantastic.
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!
Top academics in a warm atmosphere, inculcating students with Torah values and menschlechkeit, self-confidence and a love of learning.
The education that is given to my children is top rate and continues to get better all the time.
My kids love going to school each day. They are excited and eager to find out what their teachers have in store for them. The school is by far most creative in the way that they allow each child to learn with all of their senses!
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.
This is an excellent school. Our children are happy to go to school each day. They are excited to learn at HAFTR, they love their teachers and friends and they enjoy participating in so many fantastic school activities and programs.
This is a great school. The principal is amazing, she has a fabulous attitude and really gets to know the kids. She's surrounding herself with a strong administration.
the prinicipal is amazing. knows every kid by name, their personality, their strengths and weaknesses. she has orchestrated an amazing curriculum and has top notch staff as her team. teachers care about their students being the best they can be.
The education is superb. The parents are extremely involved and aware of what is going on in the classroom (almost to a fault).
