Review for Northend Jewish School, Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We have been blown away by SJCS. We never planned to send our kids to Jewish day school, but the challenging dual curriculum as well as the emphasis on the not-solely academic parts of the childrens' lives sold us on SJCS. The emphasis on the whole child helps us know that our kids are not just being taught top-notch academics (in 2 languages), but that that they are also being taken care of. SJCS helps children learn to be critical thinkers by challenging their ideas. The school helps kids learn to get along in the community of their peers, a vital part of elementary education, but an area seldom focused on by other schools we considered.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide an academically challenging education to EVERY child interested in Day school. It could expand its already robust dual curriculum & help to mentor new teachers in the field. It could pay its talented teachers the salaries/benfits they deserve.
