Jewish Montessori Enrollment Grows By 75% Over Five Years

 

Enrollment Survey Graph 2012

Washington, DC-February 3, 2013--“In spite of the worst economic downturn in 75 years, Jewish families continue to flock to Jewish Montessori Schools,” said Ami Petter-Lipstein, Executive Director of the Jewish Montessori Society. “Defying the flat and declining enrollment trends of traditional Jewish Day Schools, the results from the 2012 Jewish Montessori enrollment survey of 8 leading JM schools with full elementary programs confirm the core insight of Jewish data expert Sacha Litman: ‘Quality, not price, drives Jewish day school enrollment.’”

* CMCH is in modular space this year while building a new building. There are only 92 seats available.

^ Fall 2010, a single sex school run by AISH opened nearby in Scottsdale                                    

**In Spring 2012 TMS faced a operating budget gap that led to false rumors that the school was closing which impacted enrollment.                                                                                                                    

*** Beren's JM program is only for Grades 1-5. Beren's traditional middle school includes Grade 6-8 so decline reflects "graduation" to middle school.
