Wornick Jewish Day School 800 Foster City Blvd. Foster City, CA 94404 (650) 378-2611 Fax: (650) 378-2669 [email protected] www.wornickjds.org Head of school Adam Eilath Director of admissions & community engagement Annie O'Donnell (650) 378-2611 [email protected] Vibrant, caring and innovative community of learners from transitional kindergarten to eighth grade. With small class sizes and ample opportunities for differentiated learning, children are challenged and encouraged as individuals—academically, socially, spiritually and emotionally. Through dynamic project-based learning, students develop critical thinking skills that take them beyond the quest for answers to a deeper search for understanding and connections across disciplines. Curriculum is based on education research about the interconnected nature of knowledge. Children learn best when connections can be made across subjects, connecting to previous knowledge or to different areas of the curriculum. Students emerge with the ability to draw enduring understandings from their studies, research skills to dig ever deeper, and communications tools to articulate their discoveries with clarity and creativity. The curriculum is in line with Common Core Standards. The school’s approach to education is steeped in Jewish values, with Hebrew language and Judaic studies as core components. Children develop the intellectual and spiritual tools to live active, engaged Jewish lives, and the ethical foundation that will encourage them to make a difference in the world they inherit. Welcoming and supportive community for children and their families, open to all applicants.
