There are a select few gems who do their best, despite the tough environment. Linda Edleman (no longer with the school) was the lone human voice in the administration. Morahs Shifra and Simona are also exceptional.

Development of proper Midot begins at the top. You DO NOT want your kid's emulating Ehrlich's Midot!

Rabbi Ehrlich is verbally abusive to the parents and teachers at this establishment. He has zero respect for women, and still thinks he's living in the 1960s. He takes his "disciplinary" attitude that he should be directing toward misbehaving students and directing it towards his employees and towards parents of the students. If you're thinking about sending your child to a jewish school, stay far away from this one unless you want to put them into an extremely abusive environment.

JFS is an an amazing school. If you're debating whether or not to send your kids here, send them! I was a student there and the teachers are great. - J

This is a school for average kids. If your child is smarter then average, this school is not for them! A lot of teachers are not educated enough or don't know how to work with children who have different personalities. The school in general is not interested in your child! Fortunately public schools offer more for children and their parents!

the Rabbi of the school is an abusive, obnoxious being who should have been lfired a long time ago. I guess that is why they needed to bring in a special "disciplinary principal". Good reason to raise tuition. The assistant principal is unfortunately, a puppet who I believe might have a hard time sleeping at night because of who she needs to team up with.

I loved the school i was a student there and everyone was respectful so i have no idea what the other person is talking about but everyone is entitled their opinion. I have prospered so much from that school. the teachers were great and still are. I know this because I have siblings that still go there. It is a wonderful school and they provide a great education of jewish and secular subjects.

The rabbi in this school is amazing but the students are rude. Most teachers are nice but the other half are as rude as the children you will never hear the word THANK YOU \ PLEASE from these kids you must remind them "what the special word" I think that is incredible that a child could have such bad manner. i give 5 star for the principal their Rabbi Ehrlich, if it wasn't for him i would give it NO STAR whats so ever.
