Abraham Joshua Heschel High School 2

Heschel seems like a great school for many children, but we should warn that based on our experience and that of others with whom we have spoken, Heschel really does not seem able to or interested in working with students with special needs, except those with very limited needs or those with families who are willing and able to provide one-on-one support out of pocket. We were disappointed with our experience, and we feel this is an area where klal yisrael really breaks down at Heschel. We feel that the inclusion of different learners could enrich the entire school community.

My son has been attending the Heschel Lower School for 4 years now. He has started in pre-K and is now graduating second grade. The school is a very unique Jewish school as it is open to jews of any denomination and/or degree of belief. The parent body forms a wonderful warm and supportive community. Families can keep (or not) Jewish heritage and traditions at their homes anyway they please, as long as they respect and adhere to some common denominator requirements while students are visiting - to offer respect and honor each and every child's way of practicing Jewdaism. The classes are a bit crowded for a private school but not overly so. Academics have been improving in the lower school since the new Principal has joined 2-3 years ago. Lower and Middle schools would consolidate with the High School in 3 years in a brand new Campus.

Academic programs are good. Parent community and values taught at school are great. Sports facilities are limited.

Heschel is a top-notch school for the committed Jewish family, combining excellent academics with a sensitive and rich celebration of Jewish community and family life and religious observance.
