11 Parent Reviews for The Rashi School

We chose Rashi over a high performing public school system and a top private school. The academics are outstanding and child-centered balancing rigor and fun. The sense of community is palpable. Students support and appreciate each other as individuals quite unique, especially in middle school. ...  Read more

The school is a good place for students who would not survive socially at public school. The grades are too small making every interaction magnified. Too much staff with too little to do but examine every social exchange. The school is fine for those who like to be coddled. It is great for k-2. ...  Read more

As we searched for a school to support our two children s unique needs, we found many schools that provided either a nurturing environment or a challenging academic curriculum. In following its core Jewish values, The Rashi School was the only school we found that could do both. The supportive kehillah ...  Read more

Our twins entered first grade this year, their first year with you, and it has been seamless. Our experience with Rashi has renewed our faith in a sound, private school education.

She has been very happy here and has many wonderful friendships among her peers. The environment is warm ...  Read more

As noted in another review, the quality of instruction and morale continue to deteriorate while the administration seems solely focused on wooing wealthy parents and collecting tuition. Social services transformed into a profit center where parents are required to purchase school-directed services separately. ...  Read more

I have had 3 children go through Rashi. The Staff and the education was excellent. The staff gets to know each child as an individual and helps them be independent, strong thinkers and learners.They foster curiosity. My kids are able to advocate for themselves and learned to see teachers as partners ...  Read more

If you have a child who is academically gifted as determined by the appropriate testing, Rashi will not provide the truly enriching curriculum needed in order for such learners to thrive and grow. Be mindful of the use of differentation, because even this type of accommodation has significant limitations ...  Read more

Quality of instruction is inconsistent and it really depends on who you get. Teachers come and go every year. Administration seems more focused on getting tuition than making sure the kids get a good education. Definitely not worth the tuition.

This is a really superior school, one of the most caring environments you could hope for combined with academic excellence. There is a search going for a new Head, who will replace a good but not great one. The faculty works well together, the children get individualized attention, and the parent body ...  Read more
