    A great school that has given our children strong foundations in education and Judaics. Our children learned "how to learn" how to study how to lead and how to be a mensch. Fabulous teachers and a great leadership team.

    This is a great school and provides wonderful experiences for our kids. The curriculum is excellent and challenges the students to make connections across the different subject areas.

    I am a grandparent of two Agnon students and I'm so impressed with the curriculum Agnon uses. One of the best parts of the learning process is the approach the teachers use to integrate everyday courses into real life experiences. For example in science children don't just learn basics and subject matter but also how learning the material will truly be significant in the children's live now and as adults both professionally and personally.

    My children are thriving at Agnon a school that provides outstanding general academics and an engaging experiencial Jucaics program. Classes are small and teachers are fantastic - committed to challenging each student uniquely according to their abilities. The vibe in the school is warm inviting progressive and community oriented. What a gift for our children!

    Great community Academics very variable depending on the teacher although most are quite good. Not enough time allocated to basics esp math Administration (especially head of school and Judaics head) don't return phone calls or acknowedge parental concerns and communication with parents about changes in the school is poor

    The saying 'it takes a community' holds true at Agnon. My kids could get an education anywhere but at Agnon they are receiving an amazing life experience that will carry them into adulthood. The Agnon community is amazing - the Head of School teachers staff parents and volunteers all coming together for our children. We do it and we love it.

    Although we are only four weeks into the school year I am very impressed by the following 1)The respect and kindness the children are treated with. 2)The emphasis on the development of the whole person. 3)The ways in which discipline issuess are handled. 4)How much my son has already learned.

    My grandson attended Agnon during the 2004 to 2007 school years. The Pre-K teacher and Ms. Michelle the Kindergarten teacher were the absolute best. The school is considerate of all children and understands that learning styles vary from child to child. This could cause problems in a classroom if a teacher was not aware of the various learning styles but at Agnon there is no fear of that. Agnon is a Jewish Day School that loves and respects people of all races religions and creeds.
