The school is wonderful, I can not say enough good things about the school, teachers, and their overall experience. Send your children here, you will be happy you did.

The good thing about this school is some of the education or recess for every grade. k-8. If u wanted to send your kids their than do it for kindergarten only or maybe k-4. Since they have the best teachers.

i wouldn't send my child/children anywhere but Lippman! The negative reviews are really a shame to hear. i know first hand how close the teachers are with the students. I myself was a student there and also went to public schools after and there is no comparison. My eldest son now attends and has the same teachers I had, and she remembers me from all those yrs back so to say they are not familiar with the students is outright false. I love the school the staff and most important the education and jewish values that are given to my child

It is a great school I went till 6th grade and only left because my family moved when I got to the public school which I am at know I was ahead of the other kids in every subject plus I knew another language. The teachers there are amazing and get great depth in subjects. They also give great individual attention I was excelling in math with a couple of other kids and our teacher made us a harder math course to do everybody is really nice including the students and the parents were always really involved. And the talk about the teacher not knowing the students is nonsense our principle knew everybody. I would recommend this school to anybody

My sons are triving at The Lippman School academically & socially. They enjoy every experience presented to them by the teachers, staff & special programs. As a parent, I cannot believe my sons get dedicated time in the classroom to music, art & two languages: Spanish & Hebrew. On my oldest son's birthday, the class sang "Happy Birthday" to him in 5 languages: Hebrew, Spanish, French, English & sign language. AMAZING!

Impressive school. My child is now in a local public high school and I continue to be amazed at the preparation she received at Lippman! It is very evident in the way she conducts herself socially and academically. The teachers have asked what school she came from because they are pleased with her ability and conduct.

Lippman is a wonderful, caring, academically challenging environment for K-8 students. There are many intangible benefits (ablity to get up in front of people to speak, not hesitating to seek help from teachers as you move on to high school, a strong sense of self, etc.) to the education provided along with the obvious tangible ones (academics). Come and see for yourself!

The bad review of Nov. 29th must have been written by a disgruntled student. Unfortunately not everyone gets the grades they would like but they do receive the grades they deserve. Lippman students go on to area high schools in the honors programs of those high schools and the IB program of Firestone High School. This school provides high quality education, self-confidence and many life skills. The comfort and confidence our students feel in high school and beyond cannot be measured!

My child has been in the school for years. It has been a great school for her. She has grown not only academically but emotionally. The school is small and nurturing. Her classmates are more like siblings than just friends. The classwork is creative and challenging.

My children have both had great experiences a Lippman Day School. The environment is warm and nurturing. The academics are excellent. The small class sizes allow for individual attention that allows academic advancement.

Lippman Day School has been in Akron Ohio since 1965 so it is not a 'developing school'. This school has always been small and nuturing which has allowed, and continues to allow, for individualized attention, increased academic ability and innovative thinking. My student, who graduated after nine years (K-8) at Lippman, has excelled in high school and has had an easy transition from a small school to a large high school because of the values, self-confidence, and academic excellence instilled at Lippman.

Lippman provides a top-notch education. The individual attention that students receive is just not possible in the large classes seen in other schools. Students are participating, problem-solving, speaking, presenting, learning and receiving attention and feedback in every class, every day. The self-esteem and life skills they are building, on top of the excellent education, is incredibly valuable. Lippman gets to use the excellent facilities at the adjacent JCC - including a pool, full-size gym and auditorium, tennis courts, athletic fields, etc. I love the global perspective that is expanding at the school. The Judaics and Hebrew program is excellent. They offer Spanish and are developing a World Cultures program. They embrace diversity and value each individual's perspective. Children learn to understand and celebrate differences in themselves, their classmates and others. My children are getting a great foundation for being well-rounded, well-educated, world citizens who will thrive in our global society.

It is still a developing school that is trying to find its inner reason for teaching children.The staff is unified and ruled as one. The principle needs to take leadership and needs to get to know the students better, it is such a shame that she, along with the middle school teachers, does not know the students that well in such a small school. I would have expected a better outcome. I did not learn what was necessary for my next level of schooling. I felt incomplete and i would never suggest this school for anyone, especially not in language arts or social studies. The parts that I was most unsatisfied with was the principle, the core teacher, and the relationships between the students and the teachers. I hope that no one would ever suggest this school to anyone. It is losing its Jewish culture.

Lippman is a great school. My child receives an excellent education in a safe, nurturing, values-based environment. Class sizes are small so children get individualized attention. The teachers are able to go in-depth into topics. Beyond just teaching the information, teachers work with students on skills vital for academic and life success, such as critical thinking, problem solving, team building and oral presentation skills. They have a wonderful program for the visual and performing arts and music. They offer both Spanish and Hebrew language. The library is amazing. I see that the school is helping my child to become a high-achieving, confident, competent, well-rounded and caring individual. I am so grateful to the school and the wonderful teachers.

Lippman's academics are medium to low, the students (at least in Middle School) have major issues which are not being addressed and the behavior and bullying is out of control.

I disagree with the parent who rated Lippman low on the scale. I had the best time at Lippman and had no problems at all with the teachers, and I take offence to the idea that the student body is 'supremist'. I had no problems adjusting to public school when I went to grade 12 and I have been excelling on the Dean's List at my university every semester since starting. I am proud of my education and the lessons I learned at Lippman Day School. You really do have to experience it to believe it.

Lippman Day School is medeocre and with supremist parents and student body. Students there have intolerable behavior and the teachers, and teaching methods are unsatisfactory: and intolerant, they do not tend to childrens needs, children who finish attending this school have extreme difficulty to exceling in others.

Lippman is an excellent private school. You have to experience it to believe it.
