Yeshiva Har Torah 5

Har Torah is a unique school. It’s academically excellent without sacrificing warmth. It produces bright, kind, well-prepared, confident graduates. A unique thing about the school is that it draws kids from all over. Everyone at Har Torah chose it over a geographically closer option. This has a number of benefits but I’ll highlight two. First, the parent body is really invested in the school because it was no one’s default choice. If you send to Har Torah you’ve thought about your options and chose it over something else. Second, because the school is not attached to any particular community or high school, I would guess it sends large numbers of graduates to a wider array of yeshiva high schools than any other local elementary school. Graduates regularly go to Central, SAR, DRS, HANC, Ramaz, MTA, North Shore, Rambam, HAFTR, and others. And the school can provide unbiased, individualized HS guidance, free of any local politics. Har Torah is a special place filled with special students, administrators, faculty, and staff. I’m grateful every day that my kids go there.

Amazing place, if you can get in. Amazing teachers, administration, and really nice, smart kids.

School is horrible in picking good teachers because they don't want to spend and is very stingy and no qulified substitutes, allthough private. my son wasted his good years there. My son walked around hungry, eventhough we paid full tuition plus lunch. They discriminate and pick the kids they want to keep and would do anything to kick you out.

I love this school! There are no cliques or teasing or anything of the sort. My daughter is now in 7th grade and is so upset to graduate next year. Since the school is small, she knows all the 6th and 8th graders too. Its the best thing you could do for your kids. Go YHT!
