Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School Ratings & Reviews

We were much more pleased with other schools in the area. Akiba Schechter simply didn’t meet our needs. We wanted a more put together institution that carried through on their words and promises.

Ten years ago it was flying high. Same with 9.8.7,6,5,4,3 years ago. As soon as the DOCTOR Jones came in, chaos ensued. Such a shame.

9/10. Have 2 boys that are still in school there. Outstanding secular, value based and character building education. I wish judaic studies were a bit stronger. Like reading Chumash independently in the 2nd grade, Davening fully by themselves in 3rd grade, learning Mishna in the 3rd grade. That I hope will continue to improve. Other than that we feel blessed that our kids go to this school.

We were looking for a Jewish day school for our children to thrive in both academically and socially. We later learned that many kids come to Akiba because of behavioral issues that other schools aren't equipped to handle. Apparently this is well-known in only certain Chicago communities.Academically, the secular studies were so-so. After looking into the training of the teachers, we saw that some didn't major or minor in the subjects that they were teaching! As for us - we had to make a fast decision, so we decided to enroll our children.Socially, what we saw was reprehensible. If you happened to have a great class then it was all good, and the administration was trilled. However, if you have a bully in the class, we witnessed an administration that is helpless, hopeless, and blames the victim. We know that a well-respected Rabbi from the Chicago Rabbinical Council had to call the principle personally to instruct her to take a bullying campaign seriously and address it with the student's family. We've heard this story over and over. There isn't any anti-bullying curriculum, and the school refuses to implement one.We didn't want to have our children involved with this school's administration, so we left as did some other families.We would recommend that anyone considering this school should dig deep, and really investigate past incidents, ask the community about who they accept, as well as review teachers' academic backgrounds.

A couple of years ago I took a tour across the US of Jewish day schools with excellent academic reputations. Mainly, I visited schools along the East Coast, West Coast, a bit through other regions and overseas in Israel as well. My reason for doing this was to relocate for employment reasons. In the end, I made the decision to remain in Chicago. Why? Solely for the reason that I could not find a school that came even close to Akiba Schechter! I knew that had I moved, I'd be compromising my childrens' upbringing and education. Akiba is an amazing place. In order to understand what I mean, one must step into the hallways and classrooms of this special school. I have never seen an environment so full of excitement for learning; classes full of unity and respect; love and genuine, deep connection between teachers and their students. One truly feels like they are part of a large extended family at Akiba Schechter. My children are very different: one being very social and less academic, one being extremely gifted and self driven, and the other one also being quiet and intellectual, and yet they each thrive due to the individualized learning and small classrooms. Their talents and abilities are optimized and all are performing well above grade level. I am blown away by how much they are learning as students, critical thinkers, self driven individuals and moreover, as quality, contributing human beings. I cannot adequately praise this school enough for what they have given to my family.Just as a side point I'd like to mention, there has never been a point that the school was lacking academic accreditation. Had that been the case, enrollment would have gone down and I, as a parent, and board member, would have found another school for my children. Akiba receives numerous academic accreditations: from the national and state sector as well as the Jewish umbrella organization that overseas its religious academic accreditation: Associated Talmud Torahs. Akiba is unquestionably of the highest caliber of academic PreK-8th institutions that exist!
