Kind, compassionate teachers who go the extra mile to provide for their students. Exemplary character that is constantly demonstrated and reinforced in the student body.

4 of our 7 children have attended Stein Yeshiva. It provides a wonderful, friendly, warm and supportive environment for children to learn yiddishkeit and general studies. Our 4 year old will be starting kindergarten in September 2008. We love Stein Yeshiva!

I have been teaching 3 years in the pre-school. The long arduous trip in from Monsey is more than worth my while. Each day I teach at Stein is a thrill for me. The curriculum is very visual with many home-made big books and parasha models. Music is a daily part of the curriculum. A special 'music man' comes in addition to each early childhood ed. class. Monthly dance lessons have become part of our routine. Frequent outings and trips add to our program. The fabulous enthusiastic devoted and caring staff make Stein so unique. I feel honored and priveleged to be part of a great team.

This is the warmest school I have ever seen. Children are treated like family and truly enjoy going to school. My first grader loves homework and is stimulated by her teaches who are wonderful and kind and caring. The classes are very small and children get a lot of attention. We absolutely love Stein Yeshiva and the kindergarden, pre-k and nursery are marvelous. The children are called jewels and are certainly treated that way. The school is very responsive to individual needs.

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.
