My kids had another great year at Addlestone. The teachers are so involved and caring. No one falls through the cracks because there are no cracks to fall through. My children are known and the teachers draw out the best in them. My oldest graduated 8th grade this year and is very prepared for the Academic Magnet.

the best decision we have made for our children since we moved here was enrolling them at AHA. amazing staff and environment. it is like them going to spend time with family rather than a school. they absolutely love it and the staff is outstanding.

They have the warmest, most genuine, and caring staff with the utmost knowledge of and compassion for each student. The teachers excel in what they do and the students receive a wonderful education focusing on secular, Judaics, ethics and morals- all taught at a stellar level.

The science department in the upper grades is terrific. The students' performances at sciences fairs have improved greatly this year. The religious education is absolutely the best! I had three children attend Addlestone, two graduates. I believe the religious knowledge and values they received at school were excellent.

Because every time I go to pick up my grandson, the teachers are enthusiastic, upbeat and loving. My grandson loves the class, loves learning and feels wanted. Learning and learning in another language at this age gives children multi-facet skills.

This school is amazing! The secular academic program is by far the best in the area. Every student is treated as an individual and the teachers and staff go above and beyond to make sure that the needs of every student are met. We are not an observant family and love the Jewish values that have been instilled in our children. The fact that our oldest is almost fluent in Hebrew is great too!

what better place than AHA prepares its students for life both spiritually and secularly.

Posted April 14, 2010

The approach to teaching at the speed in which the child has the ability to keep up and still feel challenged without loosing their self esteem is amazing. Their attention to EACH child and their needs is beautiful!
