Very disappointed. The administration doesn't respect parents. All they care about is money. This is a school with no Jewish values. Also, they separate classrooms by different nationalities. Think twice before choosing Hillel as a Jewish Day School.

I was so disappointed in Hillel. The administration does not care about the kids at all.

They run the school like a money making venture, not

Terrific school -- the children are happy, learning, and loving their teachers. The administration is cutting edge and innovative--words that don't usually describe an orthodox Jewish day school. The recently hired Principal, Mr. Tremblay, has already begun to make his mark bringing a high level math
