All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The school has high standards in both Jewish and secular subjects, but the teachers and administration really shine in their attention to the individual needs of the students.

I saw some of the reviews below. My experience has been completely different. My children have received an excellent education at HANC. They hold innovative programs in both Jewish and Secular subjects as well as provide extra-curricular activities and have a program to embed new technologies as part of the learning experience. HANC has made us feel part of a family. We've had a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend HANC to others.

Religion comes first here rather than the traditional academic subjects! The students are allowed to do whatever they want and the supervision is weak or nonexistent. I taught in the high school for a very brief period and just had to get out of that environment.

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!
