School Day Structure

In our Early Childhood classes, Judaic studies and general studies are integrated throughout the school day. In grades 1-8, half of the school day is dedicated to Judaic studies subjects and half is dedicated to general studies subjects. Middle school begins in 5th grade with a departmental schedule. In addition to Judaic and general studies core classes, students enjoy additional specials including, gym, art, music, library and digital literacy/technology.

Our Classes

Classes are coed and there are typically two class sections per grade. The average size of our Early Childhood classes is 15 students and the average class size for grades 1-8 is 20 students. Preschool-4th grade have two teachers in every classroom.

Student Services

Our nurturing team of professionals is committed to identifying the individual needs of each student and providing students with the instruction and support they require in all areas of academic, organizational, social, or emotional growth. In partnership with parents, we encourage each child to reach their potential.

Starting in 1st grade, girls are expected to wear skirts that cover the knee when standing and sitting and shirts with sleeves that reach the halfway point between the elbow and shoulder. Starting in preschool boys are expected to wear tzitzit and a kippah. Starting in 1st grade boys are expected to wear a shirt with a collar and a neat pair of pants (no athletic pants).
