Many voices are heard in the vision of our educational program. As an educational community, we are committed to critical thinking in our classrooms through the process of asking questions and evaluating answers. In both General and Judaic Studies, we teach skills that empower students to form a coherent understanding of themselves in the world, and to search for solutions to problems through dialoguing with peers and teachers.
Learning should and does reflect the developmental levels of our students. We allow students to be guided by teachers and to learn through discovery. Students make meaningful connections to what they learn, to articulate opinions and evaluations and to collaborate with their peers in problem solving – sometimes leading and sometimes being led. The texts of the Jewish tradition and the history of the Jewish people are fundamental resources for developing ideas, beliefs, and values to shape and inspire our students and families.
