Lerner School 5

This is the first year that my daughter, a second-grader, enrolled at Lerner and we are simply delighted with every aspect of her experience. Her education is superb -- her main teacher is kind, rigorous, warm and bright. The children in her grade have been wonderful. Zero bullying, exclusion or snobbery. She's taking remedial Hebrew and the school provides daily private lessons for her so she can catch up -- at no extra charge to us. My daughter is actually happy to go to school each day. It's an intimate school and I suppose if you end up with a main instructor you don't like, that can be a problem. But so far, the teachers I've been exposed to are really all winners. The only area I can't rave about is the art program. I haven't seen any great artwork come home yet.

The Lerner School is an excellent school with an amazing teaching staff, beautiful facilities, and a strong commitment to high academic standards. I have a preschooler and 2nd grader enrolled at Lerner, and I feel so good dropping them off in the morning. When I pull into the school they literally jump out of the car and can't wait to start their days. I love seeing all of the engaging activities that are set up and ready to go as soon as my preschooler walks into his classroom. He is so excited to play and learn. And I am constantly amazed how my second grader is not only learning so much academically but also learning to be a good world citizen- understanding the responsibility each of us has to be compassionate, tolerant and make the world a better place. I can't say enough good things about Lerner!

I am thrilled with the education my children are receiving at Lerner. Not only are the academics amazing (my children's writing, reading and math skills are well above grade level), but the Jewish flavor of the school is incredible. The students are so comfortable in their Jewish skin, because they live Jewishly everyday at school, with Judaics and t'fillah, and daily Hebrew classes. Jewish values are woven into the secular curriculum, creating a deeper, more meaningful understanding of our faith. Sending our children to Lerner is an investment in our children's future, both academically and spiritually. I can't say enough wonderful things about Lerner!

Perfect school for my 3 year old daughter who is very outgoing,curious and creative and courageous at same time. She loves all the arts & Crafts they do at school and enjoy evey time they got out to play in sand. Great teachers, great staff, very warm, friendly.

I cannot say enough about how amazing Lerner is as an educational resource for my children. The integrated curriculum means often times my children are having real lessons that I see them apply at home but they think they are having fun. The excitement I hear in my children's voices about what they are learning and their desire to show it off would be enough for me even if I didn't know about the integration and the high level of academic excellence that abounds. Not only is Lerner amazing because of the education in and of itself, but in addition you become a part of an amazing community. There is parent, teacher and student involvement at every level. I never feel "out of the loop". I am amazed and impressed with the friendships my children are making and, added bonus, me too! To be able to have Lerner as a resource in our lives is a blessing beyond words and yet I would go on and on.....
