WHY A COMMUNITY DAY SCHOOL?
Some families are looking for small class sizes, nurturing environments and positive peer groups, while others seek an early second-language program. Still, some want an academic experience steeped in the Jewish tradition of critical thinking and ethical behavior. Many are drawn by another family’s positive experience. Jewish days schools are the energizing nucleus of the North American Jewish community. Research shows Jewish day school graduates are more compassionate, more engaged in their communities, and more civically aware than their peers from other school settings. There is truly something for everyone, it is never too late to come in for a tour!
The Jewish day school has no equal – it provides an unparalleled and unprecedented level of religious, cultural, moral, linguistic, and secular education to students from across the spectrum of Jewish life in North America.
Jewish day schools provide early exposure to and constant, daily reinforcement of a second language (Hebrew) from the first day of kindergarten through the close of eighth grade. Because of the core values that guide them, Jewish day schools promote outstanding morals, ethics, and values.
There is universal consensus within the Jewish community that the day school is the single most effective vehicle for the transmission of Jewish knowledge and the single best safeguard for a vibrant Jewish future.
