As someone who once had the honor to teach at DHR several years ago, I have a real 'un-doctored' impression of this amazing school. The students love to learn, the teachers actively care about their success and there is a general atmosphere of joy that permeates all school activities. In fact, I am so impressed that my child will be attending kindergarten there next year.
Everybody that came out of there seems so balanced and self confident...
The school is fantastic warm place where there is a sense of purpose.
I am a parent of 3 children of Derech HaTorah Of Rochester (a 4th graduated) I absolutely love this school. Being a mom of many children, and having lived in Pennsylvania and NYC, I have probably had experience with at least a dozen schools. Without a doubt, my husband and I are the most satisfied now, with our children at DHR. First of all, our children are actually happy and like school. That really should be 'enough said' but I will elaborate. The staff is caring and devoted. The enthusiasm for education is exciting and palpable. If an issue does arise, you can speak to Mrs. Goldstain, the principal, and work together to see positive change. I feel extremely lucky and fortunate to say that my children are receiving an excellent Judaic and secular education at Derech HaTorah of Rochester.
I love the small class size. I trust the staff and administration completely.
DHR is a small school that provides the Jewish comunity in Rochester with more than regular education. DHR is our extended family!
A great school that nurtures students and promotes respect and integrity. The teachers are very caring and dedicated. They work tirelessly, adjusting their teaching methods in order to best relate to each student's needs and strengths. As a result, the children thrive!
Because I see the results in the children - they are learned, and their behavior is a credit to the school and their parents.
Its a happy place that exudes excitement and warmth, coupled with a love of learning!!
It's the only school of its kind in the Rochester area and it's the best!!! Great place for kids to learn about everything to keep them happy in life and on the right path. I also love the physical activity involved and how close the teachers and principal work with each student. Fantastic!!!
It teaches to the individual child. The teachers are accessible. Small class size.
I love the faculty and principal of DHR! They are a great team that works together to make sure that our kids get the best possible education!
I love DHR because of the students, the parents, the administration and the teachers are the best!!!
DHR has a wonderful warm environment. The students and teachers have a wonderful repoir. My children love to go to school.
