Loved the Academy! Would love to see change in teaching styles - teachers should be flexible to different learning styles and available to help all students, not just ones they connect to.

Ida Crown is an overall alright school. I had mostly positive experiences, but some very negative ones. I enjoyed the classes I choose to take, but I did not enjoy the mandatory ones. Many of the students who attend in my experience have been racist.
ICJA offers a well balanced, excellent Jewish and general studies education. The culture is more like a family than a school, with teachers who spend countless hours with students even outside of the classroom. The school is constantly focused on improving, using research-based methods, and students leave prepared for college and life.
