I'm a grandparent of four children attending Politz Hebrew Academy. Even though I lived in the neighborhood for many years I was not familiar with PHA. However my children enrolled in Nov 2010- Emphasis is put on math social studies science english (strong on writing skills) religious coures etc. There are programs in which the entire class has an opportunity to participate. Term papers are assigned in which the student can show creativity. Principal is in full command of the school knowing each child individually. Manners are expected which is an attribute from the "olden days." Warmth is displayed throughout the school . My review of the school concludes with a discovery that I made since the children attend this old (is it historic?) building it is the best kept secret in Philadelphia (and surrounding counties). The school goes from K to 8th grade. However the secret has probably leaked out to the community Politz is planning to open a pre-school class due to their proven reputation. I would recommend this school to any parent who is looking for a strong curriculum "sprinkled" with respect to each student and staff member.
