I have to agree with the parent who wrote the most recent review. This is a TERRIBLE school. It is NOT a warm or nuturing environment. If your child or your family is not EXACTLY like everyone else you and your child will be ostracized. My son was bullied relentlessly by his classmates and the administrations response was to tell me he brought it on himself and ignored the abusive behavior. The academic program is not challenging and the lack of concern regarding secular studies was appalling. Do not waste your time and money on this school if you care at all about your child's education and safety. The only reason I gave 1 star us because this site wouldn't allow zero.

Please notice that every other review was posted within a day or two of 10/21/10. This must have been a concerted effort to boost the rating of this very poorly run school. The teacher turnover is high because they are underpaid. Most teachers have very little experience and are not good. In fifth and sixth grade the kids only have science and social studies for half a year -- probably as a money saving move. Children of board members and others with pull get special consideration, including placement in a higher track. My oldest son could not get into the top math class even though he was getting 95-96 in his class. There are much better options for Jewish day schools.

We are part of the Hanc family, which includes students, parents, faculty and administration. Upon entering the school you are greeted by the security guard, and as you proceed to walk deeper into the building, the enthusiasm and the warmth is contagious. Everyone in Hanc is considered part of the family. Bullying has become a hot topic in today's media. HANC is the antithesis of that. Every student looks after for one another.

HANC is a school that offers excellent academics in secular and religious studies but emphasizes the character of the child. There is differentiated learning going on in every classroom and several enrichment opportunities as well as several resource programs.
