Ida Crown Jewish Academy Reviews

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.

There are a lot of different teachers and each have their own way of doing everything. Regarding teaching styles, some teachers prefer to have class discussion, some have students do group projects and then present to the class, some lecture and most use a combination. Most of the teachers are very knowledgeable regarding their subject matter. They are interested in their students and do whatever they can to ensure success. They communicate well with student through being available at lunch, free periods and after school as well as each teacher having an email. Grading is consistent and teachers do not grade based on favorite students.
The relationship students are able to have with teachers really makes a difference in the school. Students can bring up issues and be assured that they will be addressed to the best of the faculty's ability. The school is a community and there is a special type of atmosphere it has. Since it is on the smaller side, most students know each other and will greet each other when passing in the hallways. There also is a lot of food sharing, which bounds students. The long day and duel curriculum make the school unique and give students the opportunity to learn both secular and Jewish studies. I would choose this school again because of the friends I have made here, the teachers who have taught me a lot, the environment and the duel curriculum.
