THE GENERAL STUDIES PROGRAM
Our General Studies Program keeps a clear focus on the development of oral and written language literacy skills. Starting with phonemic awareness in Kindergarten, the curriculum moves towards decoding, encoding, and reading fluency. The development of reading comprehension skills begins with literature discussions as early as Kindergarten. As their intellectual capacity grows, strategies are taught to enable students to increase understanding and further develop their analytical skills.
Our math curriculum emphasizes the acquisition and application of mathematical concepts and skills in a wide range of situations, including non-routine, open-ended and real-world problems. The learning process gives students a solid math foundation upon which to build increasingly complex skills.
THE JUDAIC STUDIES PROGRAM
Our Judaic Studies Program provides a contemporary approach to the transmission of traditional Jewish values and commitment to Torah and the State of Israel. Children learn to speak, read and write Hebrew and to recite daily prayers. Classes emphasize moral and ethical behavior, character development and respect (derech eretz). Youngsters learn at an early age that they are part of a diverse Jewish family where every voice is heard and respected.
Starting with Hebrew reading and Hebrew language in first grade, followed with an introduction to Bible study in second grade, our students develop textual skills along with an appreciation for the timeless lessons that strengthen Jewish identity and Jewish connections.
