Scranton Hebrew Day School has/does teach the highest standards in both Hebrew and English subjects. Small in numbers - yet able to convey to the students and teachers, education is delivered in a setting of warmth and love. Individual attention is the key to bringing out the very best in each child! The foundation of the students abilities is acheived at the day school and carries them through life to all the goals they set for themselves. Proud to be a mother of three who went through the day school system and are today productive and well educated adults, all thanks to the Scranton Hebrew Day's impact on their first learning experience! thank you, day school!

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.
