We've lived in four different cities during our children's academic careers and experienced four very different private schools as a result. They have all had their pros and cons, although mostly pros in all cases. We moved here just in time for our youngest child to enter upper school.

Math is done in both English and Spanish. Tabula Rasa is in my opinion twice...

To me, that's the most important thing I can say and the main reason I see for sending a kid to Jewish school as opposed to home schooling. We have an observant home and considered sending her to the girls' school, but for various reasons, sent her to YA instead. Despite the coed environment, it has been good for her religiously. The Judaics courses are challenging and I've found the Judaics teachers do a good job of encouraging the students to ask questions and make an effort to answer them. Jewish belief is promoted, but not pushed. Academically, YA has challenged her, and...
