Our day school experience offers small classes, exceptional teachers, and attention to individual learning styles.


ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE


Education is the hallmark of our school. Through differentiated instruction and child centered classrooms, our students graduate as confident, caring and collaborative learners who are prepared to lead and affect


A WARM WELCOMING COMMUNITY


Our school is a family, a community that embraces Jewish children from all backgrounds. Our staff is carefully chosen not only for their teaching ability, but also for their ability to mentor and be role models for our students. Our students are taught values based on Torah ethics enabling them to become citizens who will make a difference in their communities, in Israel, and in the world at large.


ARE JEWISH DAY SCHOOL GRADUATES
WELL PREPARED FOR HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE?


Our school prides itself on the high-quality general studies education that we provide. Additionally, studies show that intensive study of a second language and Judaic texts enhance analytical skills used in other areas of study, in high school, college, and beyond; and enable our graduates to excel. A national study of 3,000 Jewish undergraduates, conducted by Brandeis University, found that former Jewish day school students gain admittance to the most highly selective colleges and universities and often become leaders on college campuses. The study found that former day school students exhibit a strong orientation toward civic and social responsibilities and greater commitment to the Jewish community than those who did not attend Jewish day school. Day schools simultaneously build two generations of Jewish leaders: parents, who often become active in the schools and the community; and students, who are more likely to be future Jewish leaders because of their education.
