The children's education is sub-standard. They do not learn how to speak Hebrew. In 6th grade, they only studied science for half of the year. If you apply for financial aid, you will be turned down. But if you threaten to take you child out, they will beg you to come back.
The staff does not help students to gain knowledge about any other topic except Judiasm. Since it is a very global world today, this is such a mistake. These kids are not learning about othe cultures and are locked in their own little world.
If your household is not operating under a professional-working-father and semi-professional mother working part-time (or not at all), or if it it comes to light that your child is adopted or suspected of being less than a "real" Jew in any way, HANC staff and administrators will respond accordingly. Be warned.
This school has a significant problem with communication among the faculty and administration. Although the Rabbi/Principal is approachable and available to meet with parents to discuss their needs and concerns, there is a clear breakdown in communication during the school day among faculty and staff. It is not a great school at all and needs to improve.
This school is absolutely fabulous. It is a warm and loving creative Jewish environment with a nice mix of veteran and younger teachers. The Principal/Rabbi is continually improving on the program and is very approachable to all parents and students and their needs and concerns. The school has students from many different levels of Jewish observance and all are treated respectfully..I think it's a great place.
The toddler teachers are extremely caring. The arts and crafts are very impressive as well as the educational component. The principal is fantastic and attentive to parent needs. The classroom is small and outdated though!
