Educational Philosophy

Every teacher knows our students' stories and each child is met with love and respect.

Early Childhood (3, 4 and 5 years old)

Our youngest students explore, discover and create through play-based learning and targeted instruction. They experience wonder daily as they learn new skills, understand more about the world around them and make lifelong friends.

Lower School (first-fourth grade)

Students master grade-level-specific skills and routines as they engage in student-owned learning. Children research nonprofit organizations and choose meaningful organizations to support. They hone their sense of empathy when learning why and how we perform tzedakah

Upper School (fifth-eighth grade)

Students are given more voice and choice with authentic, rigorous opportunities to develop skills that will make a difference in the community and beyond. Having genuine leadership opportunities builds self-advocacy and preparation for tikkun olam.
