We came to Abrams after stints at BOTH Perelman Schools. I had been told that Abrams was too Orthodox for us, that their academics are less competitive, etc. Everything I thought I knew about Abrams was wrong. Abrams has outstanding teachers in both secular and Judaic studies. My son's teachers are deeply committed to his education and teach to him--they don't teach their lesson and then just hope the students absorb it. They are accessible both to him and to me. I also can't say enough about the school's leadership. The Rabbi is a man of vision who is committed to making the school the best in can be. This means both regularly evaluating what the school does well and looking for areas of improvement. He is also committed to making an Abrams education accessible to people regardless of their financial resources and goes above and beyond anything I've ever seen to make sure that students are not turned away for financial reasons. The school has many exciting new programs that place a priority on excellence in science and math. It is more than a school--it is a family, and we've been welcomed with open arms. I can't recommend the school highly enough!

Fabulous academics and the caring for each individual student is unique. Every middles school class uses Smart Boards and the elementary school has them in 3 grades. HIghly recommend this 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.

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 »
