    "I think that while the quality is varied, for the most part teachers at my school are quite good. That being said, there are some departments that are far superior to others. For instance, while the English and Social Studies department teachers are incredibly engaging, popular amongst the students, and utilize technology and real world influences quite well, the science and math departments feel as if they are constantly changing and are always a step behind. I would say the greatest strength of the school's teaching comes from the teachers' interest in the betterment of their students lives, and their willingness to help them."

    "I think that while my time at GOA/SSDSEU has had its ups and downs, overall the school has made me a better person. It helped me develop my interpersonal skills and allowed me to build some great friendships. It taught me more about Jewish values, history, and texts than I could have learned anywhere else. It taught me how to utilize the resources that are available to me. Most importantly, I learned more than I think I would have at any other school. So, f I had to start all over again, the first thing I would do is enroll here."

    "I love the leadership opportunities that the small school gives me, and the interdisciplinary focus of the dual Judaic/Secular curriculum. There are enough rigorous courses to challenge every student, but enough help and support to allow struggling students to succeed. Proportionate to the size and religious nature of the school, there are many extracurricular and academic opportunities. The administration is very active in student and academic life, communicates well with the community, and is receptive to constructive criticism. However, I would like to see some more diversity in terms of classes taught, especially AP and other advanced courses."

    "The teachers all try their best and genuinely care about their students. The teacher-student relationships are very close - students generally consider teachers their friends and supporters. However, the school is understaffed in some departments - namely Foreign Language - and some teachers are less exciting or intelligent than you might like."

    "This is a special place where teachers and administrators know our children both academically and socially. We've received emails from teachers who want us to be aware of areas where they are helping our children outside of class - and where we can help our children at home. The new Head of School makes a point to attend sporting events, plays, and concerts and is really approachable. He seems to know almost all of the students in the school!"
