The woman who posted below has a child with behavioral issues, who has worn out her welcome at every other school he attended. Disregard. This school is not what it appears. The school is insidious and ineffectual. The teachers who are friends of the principal are retained regardless of how useless they may be. My daughter's teacher has neglected to address behavioral issues with the daughter of a donor family that have been ongoing for now 4 years! This child (and a select few others) are treated as above the law, and their parents handled with kid gloves. The principal is a puppet to the overreaching administration. The office staff is surly and useless. Even the parent body seems have checked out of the school. For the nearly $20K per year in tuition costs, you would think that their educational model could be improved to reflect more modern didactic trends, but they have hung on to their old-fashioned and outdated model. Like any school, some of the teachers are great, but others are terrible. I observed a 4th Grade math class one day where the students dressed down their teacher and took control of the class--and this was supposed to be an enrichment class! Don't do it..wa$te.

This school changed our lives. From the teachers to the administrators, and from the Jewish education to the secular, the school is top notch. Without a doubt, the academics are first class, but it is the feel in the school and the way the children learn to live an ethical life that makes all the difference.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
