Girls Elementary School

The Girls Elementary School focuses on developing our girls academically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Academic Achievement
Our Judaic Studies and General Studies programs work in parallel to develop the whole child. The Judaic Studies program provides instruction in the core content and skills areas of Kriah, Chumash, Gemara, Halacha and Yahadus. The General Studies program provides instruction in the core content areas of Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Our dedicated staff work to help our girls achieve excellence in both Judaics and General Studies. The early elementary grades strive to build fluent readers and mathematicians. The upper elementary grades focus on building independent learners who will be ready for the challenges of high school.

Emotional Awareness
The Girls Elementary School recognizes the importance of developing students socially and emotionally. The school provides a small classroom environment that allows students to build self-confidence and self-efficacy, and the dedicated staff focuses on helping girls grow as individuals within a cohesive group. Students are provided with a safe and nurturing environment that prepares them to be confident and compassionate leaders in their own communities and the greater world.

Spiritual Growth
The Girls Elementary School promotes early spiritual growth with a firm foundation based in religious practice and thought. In addition to providing foundational skills in the pursuance of a religious life, our dedicated Judaics teachers provide personal ethical examples and work to instill strong Judaic values in their classrooms.
