The ECC director has no tact, is fake and rude. There is a new headmaster. Some teachers are ok, others pathetic.

We are so excited for the Grand Opening of our newly renovated campus, which will take place on August 28, 2013. Over the summer, we have transformed our Weinreb Family Early Childhood Center and Beck Lower School into the optimal collaborative learning environment, including outdoor classrooms. Our families will be amazed, and our faculty will help our students thrive in this environment.

Levine Academy has improved considerably over the last couple of years with the hiring of an excellent headmaster and new principal. Some parents are cliquey if you are not in a certain socio-economic class or from South Africa, but you can find more down to earth people too. Some kids reflect their parents' attitudes, but most do not. New programs have been implemented this past year to provide advanced academics by giving different, more challenging work, as opposed to only the extra work given in the past. This change is definitely the right approach. My children have been engaged, appreciated and supported by their teachers in the pre-school and lower school. Their self-confidence, leadership, and critical thinking skills have been enhanced by the curriculum and teachers. My children have made close friends and love going to school. I am pleased with the education my children are getting in both Jewish and secular studies.

I have two children at the school and we've been incredibly happy there. The teachers have gone out of their way to help my children and I'm always amazed at the schoolwork they are assigned. It's challenging and thought provoking while still being age and grade appropriate.

I have 3 kids who have been going to Levine since the preschool. Every year they have been propertly placed with spectacular teachers who give them each personalized attention to their needs. I have one who needs extra attention in explaining the concepts while another who quickly grasps things easily. Week in and week out they are given the approrpiate attention and in some cases extra work to keep them challenged and motivated. They all love school so much. I can't think of a better place for my children.

Our childen have gone to Levine Academy since pre-school and are now entering 6th grade. From the moment we walked into Levine we felt a warm and caring environment. The teachers and staff are incredible. Our kids feel Levine is their "home away from home". There is a great balance of Judaic and Secular Studies. The school focuses on enriching the "whole person" to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially.The school works hard at fostering a personal sense of confidence in each student as well as developing a compassion in helping others. We have no doubt our kids will stay through 8th grade and graduate feeling confident in their Jewish identity and academic abilities. -Current Levine Parent

Levine academy has been the best educational decision I've ever made for my son. Perfect balance of secular and Jewish studies with first rate teachers and administration. Welcoming families and tons of on campus and off campus events. A true community devoted to education and well being of the children. Thank you Levine!

Levine Academy is truly an exemplary school not just for its Judaic studies but also for it's outstanding academics. Our 8th grade students are getting into their high school of choice. Levine Academy offers a deep sense of community that you can't get from going to a public school or any other private school for that matter. You walk in to the school and know that you are "home".

I am married to a graduate of Levine Academy and all three of our daughters attend Levine. My husband credits his success in life to his education at Levine. My daughters LOVE their school. I know they are receiving a great, well-rounded education. My oldest needs extra help and receives it from all her teachers. Parents who wish to volunteer are always welcomed.

We have three children at Levine Academy and this is our 9th year at the school. We couldn't be happier! This is a very nurturing and loving environment which just feels like home. The small class size, small groups for reading, math, and Hebrew, and individual attention make this an incredible place for learning - both for the gifted and for the more challenged students. Our children are obtaining a very strong foundation in secular and Judaic studies, but more important in their personal development, sense of self worth, and strong values. We see the Levine experience as a gift that we are giving to our children which will allow them to succeed in any environment. Based upon the history of other Levine graduates, we anticipate that our children will have their pick of any school and are likely to be accepted into their first choice of high schools.

Levine academy creates a home away from home for my children. The teachers are extremely responsive and treat each child as an individual. They teach to each child and not to the masses. Levine's reputation has increased over the years as the caliber A private high schools began to recognize our graduating children as some of the most educated, socialized and well rounded applicants to their schools. Schools that our children move onto after eighth grade are some of the best in the country. We plan to stay throughout. Levine is very flexible and anonymous with regards to financial assistance. Tour the school and you will see the difference,

If you're thinking about going to Levine Academy, think again. It's a clique and outsiders are not easily welcomed. The administration is very unfriendly and unorganized.

Terrible and fake atmosphere. Few children in class that will not welcome anyone new. All children are raised to complain on each other and are raised with no ability to stand up for themselves. Poor teaching tactics, they will not work with your child unless your child is a robot that will sit quite and will not interact with anyone.

Levine isn't a great Jewish Day School. Its a great school that happens to be a Jewish Day School. We have one child in the Lower School and two childen in the Middle School and all three are getting exemplary educations -- with the added bonus of building the foundation for their Jewish identity. The best way to judge a school is to look at the graduates. Levine Academy students feed into the best high schools and colleges in the country and, even more importantly, they grow up to be successful, morally upstanding citizens in the community. What else could you ask for as a parent?

Levine is perfect if your child is exactly average. If your child is above average or has any type of learning difference, Levine is terrible. In fact, they have no idea what to do with your child in these cases. The teachers are ill-equipped and completely unwilling to help. They tell you the issues, but don't have any recommendations on how to fix these issues. There are much better private schools in Dallas that cost the same money. Levine is comparable to an average public school. Above average public schools are much better than Levine. I definitely would not recommend this institution.
