An independent community day school for TK-8th grade, providing students with a nurturing and engaging environment that focuses on academic excellence, social and emotional development, and Jewish studies. With a project-based learning approach, students develop practical life skills through research, inquiry and decision-making, resulting in deeper understanding and increased engagement.

The school offers an interdisciplinary STEM curriculum with hands-on experience in science, technology, engineering, and math. Technology is integrated into the core curriculum, and each student has access to an appropriate device from TK to eighth grade.

The Jewish studies curriculum promotes joyful Jewish learning and fosters a positive Jewish identity, with a Hebrew program accommodating various proficiency levels. Community service is integrated into both general and Jewish studies programs, providing meaningful opportunities for students to participate in mitzvot such as avodah la’olam (work of the world), bikkur cholim (caring for the sick), ma’achil re’evim (feeding the hungry) and tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Music, art and physical education enrich the curriculum for all grades, and students can participate in interscholastic sports such as basketball, cross country, flag football, soccer, tennis and volleyball in grades 6-8.

Aim is to provide a well-rounded educational experience that empowers students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, and socially responsible leaders. Through academic excellence, community responsibility, and vibrant Jewish living in a nurturing and welcoming environment, the school supports its students’ development and growth.
