    My school is outstanding!!! I have been the Administrative Assistant for over 9 years and I love this place. The families are all so warn and caring their children especially the little ones are a joy to be around. The teachers work very hard to make their students feel that they are the best that they can be and then some.

    I think the school is great. Focusing on building student's character and personalities along with their knowledge. And let them all play individual straights and be themselves

    Providence Hebrew Day School provides a warm caring and supportive environment. My son entered with special needs and the school provided their own tutors in English and Hebrew before I had the opportunity to ask. The staff are available at night for questions. The children are kind and giving. What the school lacks in physical beauty it more than makes up in heart and spirit. Improvements are sorely needed in the school itself such as new windows replaced floors a new roof storage areas a new playground a real gym and so on.

    Providence Hebrew Day School is a wonderful school that provides an excellent academic education and solid grounding in the values we want our children to absorb. The small class size allows for a lot of individual attention and more opportunities for all. The children form friendships with those in the grades above and below them and maintain relationships with teachers for years after leaving their class. The school is hampered by lack of funds but does an admirable job given its size and funding.

    I find both the secular and Judaic studies programs to be excellent and am most impressed with the 'derech eretz' program where the students learn to give respect and honor to each other teachers parents and elders. We moved to this state so that our children could attend Providence Hebrew Day and are very happy with our decision. The school has had a positive impact on all of our children even the ones who are still too young to attend. My children have even been known to cry when there's a snow day and they can't attend school!

    The secular education at this school is second to none. It is much better than other higher priced private schools and far superior to public schools. The self dicipline that the students develop as well as the kindness to others is phenominal.
