School Description:
The children in our school come from many diverse backgrounds; ranging from Reform, Conservative to Orthodox. Many are Beis Yaacov type. There are small classes in which each student recieves individual attention. The students all play together, which creates a warm and enthusiastic enviroment.
Correct 'Midos' are emphasized in the School, as the basis of ones learning. For the Hebrew subjects, the classes are split up according to knowledge. However, for the Secular studies, the students are put together with the others in their grade. The Staff in the office are very caring about each student. When a student is absent for a few days, the staff will call the family up to make sure that they are okay. If a family moves in, in middle of the year, the School does not hestitate to accept them in whole heartedly and make it their interest to help the child adjust. Some parents will choose to send their child to a Public School, or Yeshiva, so the school will prepare them for various types of High Schools.
