School Description:
This school is modern-orthodox with roughly 25% of their student body from the secular population. Though they do not have uniforms, they require their students to dress modestly - female students must wear a skirt that covers their knees, sleeves must cover half their arms and no more than 1" of skin around their necks may be visible. Male students must wear a kipa and collared shirt. They have both female and male students, but the classes are gender separate for Judaic studies as they are for sports and lunch. It is a small school with class sizes less than 15 students. Their students are well-prepared for college. They offer tutorials and assistance for students who are not well versed in all areas of Judaism, such as minyan and the Hebrew language. They also offer alternative curriculums for students who require less intense studies, but cover the required material.
