    The Jewish religious education is very traditional with an emphasis on rote text knowledge. The religious teachers are enthusiastic and committed to their craft. In the upper grades especially amongst the older boys there are often significant behavioral and academic issues that are not systematically addressed. Secular subjects are sometimes taught by teachers with little or no subject matter background. Interestingly many of the issues at this school are not disimiliar to those commented on by parents at the Salaam School.

    This school is great if religious education is the main concern for your children not secular education. The students are polite but suffer severe attitude issues with anyone not of the Orthodox Jewish faith. Censorship is extreme when it comes to materials for students. The fact that over 90% of the students receive voucher monies from the state is a joke. The administration will bend over backwards to only accept the "right" students. These children would never attend a non-orthodox Jewish school so their receipt of tax funds should be offensive to any taxpayer.
