The basic elements of all learning are addressed in both our General and Judaic Studies curricula. These elements include developing ability in language arts, critical thinking skills, increasing independence and exploration as a learner, and the ability to work with others in groups and teams. Our teachers at every grade level challenge the children in each instructional division of the school day. Thus, our children “learn how to learn” throughout the school day.
Moreover, there is the integration of all curricula throughout the day. For example, our children study the scientific change of seasons while they simultaneously study Jewish and secular autumn holidays. They study the city of Jerusalem and Global Jewish history as part of the school’s Social Studies program. Students train to apply reading and writing skills to both English and Hebrew texts, including the Torah.
Our school is dedicated to offering a demanding and intellectually rewarding dual-language academic program, while constantly examining our program for developmental readiness. Our students work hard during the school day, and it is our hope and intention that the work they do is supported and encouraged in their homes.
