Bais Yaakov is a wonderful school. Our daughter has been there for 4 years and we have been impressed with the academics, the focus on character development, religious education as well as secular studies. Also, we have been very pleased with the administration. From the ladies who answer the phones, to the principals, everyone has gone out of their way to make our experience as smooth as possible. I don't know why there have been some negative entries here. So much to be impressed with at this school. The teachers are outstanding. We love it.

This school is outstanding in everyway. There is no way I can explain it. The teachers are very fair and the princapals always helps you with your problems. There are no words to describe how incredible Bais Yaakov of Queens is.

The quality of academic programs is very high. Music and art of Judaic studies seems to interest the girls at this school. Extracurricular activities and sports are not readily available, however. Parents are very involved, but sometimes too involved. The clerical staff members are not too friendly and very unhelpful.

I would like to inform the parents of prospective students to beware of this school's administration. I would not recommend this school for parents that dont have a strong affiliation with religion. Becuase this school is a very orthodox jewish school that implements a strict uniform policy and overall restrictive policies.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
