    "Ida Crown Jewish Academy dulls creativity and teaches students to conform to their ideas of what a "Good Jew" is. They are completely backwards in their religious teaching practices, and their teachers for Judaic studies teachers seem uneducated and too closed-minded. Though the new building is beautiful, Ida Crown presents the same, mediocre education that it always has. I do not feel prepared for the real world; if anything, I feel violently unprepared. I was too sheltered in ICJA, and I was not taught how to deal with modern issues. The education/staff isn't even the worst of it. The students are disrespectful, completely oblivious to real-world issues, and just all around bratty. I did not enjoy my time there, and I do not plan on returning for a visit."

    "I felt that my creativity was dulled, the environment was hostile, and my Jewish faith was diminished. I felt personally targeted for being a woman at ICJA, and the male teachers were demeaning toward their female students. What makes this school unique is how outdated and backwards their morals are. I would not come back here or send my children here. The kids at this school are downright cold, the teachers could be better, and the administration does not seem the least bit interested in the lives of the students. If you go here, you'll just be another name in the system. You will not be special; you will not feel at home."

    "This school has an excellent general and Judaic studies program, with caring and dedicated teachers. It also has a fantastic resource program, with an amazing staff. They recognize that bright students can have learning issues and can be in honors classes with support. They have an outstanding extra curricular program with sports teams routinely winning conference titles. The philosophy of the school is to teach students to be dedicated to Judaism as well as Israel, while living in today's world. The new building is phenomenal."

    "The teachers really care about their students, with excellent academic standards. This is a rigorous college prep school that truly represents our families Jewish values. The Academy is dedicated to every student, with a great resource department for those students with learning issues, and challenging AP and accelerated courses for advanced ones. We love this school."

    "I loved being in my Bible class sophomore year because the teacher was great and made learning fun. I would go to this school all over again because of the friendly students and nice and caring staff."
