With a revamped curriculum and the use of engaging educational technologies, our students from kindergarten through grade 5 develop a love of learning, a confident Jewish identity, and strong basic skills in reading, writing, math, Hebrew and Jewish text analysis that provides them the ability to engage with the world meaningfully and prepares them for future academic success.

Boasting their own wing in the beautiful main building, the middle school combines the academic striving of the high school program with the warm and nurturing environment appropriate for the middle school age. The students take advantage of the many resources of the high school, including technology, labs, the maker space and, of course, subject-specific expert teachers, while establishing the building blocks for more advanced and departmentalized academic study..
