AMAZING BEST SCHOOL EVER - but actually an amazing school with Pluralism, which means that this school allows all types of Judaism. Their are orthodox, conservative, reform, constructive and half Jewish students at Barrack. They have all types of minyans and classes that support all types of Judaism
This school is great and getting greater by the day with a new administrator, a new academic dean, and very strong academics. Particularly strong are English, drama, Jewish Studies and some help is needed in math and science, but that is being addressed now with the new leadership. Even with a child who has struggled academically, the school is open to new ideas and really allows the students and the parents to advocate for what they need. Of particular importance is the junior year trimester in Israel. Students learn to live and learn on their own in what can only be described as a life changing experience.
