Great for individuals who are Modern Orthodox. Nice family involvement. Singapore Math is an interesting experiment. They like to pick and choose who they will help. Very expensive if paying full tuition.
School where your child better be good in Hebrew, have money live in the right area and know "Singapore Math"---Great ratio of student to teachers. They seem to try hard. Children dyslexic need not apply. "The cut backs" in help for any child with learning differences will be well known AFTER you pay your money. The website promise of "genuine, passionate, forward thinking, well balanced and centered" is just a good line for the money from the Jewish Federation. "The cut backs" and concern of a dual curriculum kicks in later---just make sure they know Singapore math--keep kosher,go to the right temple and are up to date with the Hebrew and your child should be fine. The assistant head of schools will ambush you with meetings later ---and then the fun begins.
If you want your child to grow up to be a 'mensch', send them to Akiba! If you want your child to grow up with the skills they need to fulfill their dreams, send them to Akiba! If you want to make lifelong friends for your child and yourself, come join our family!
