Our students achieve academic excellence in both English and Hebrew language arts, mathematics, social science, general science, and religious studies.
Students also attend sessions in music, art, computer and science laboratories, physical education, and Israel Folk Dancing.
We seek the growth and development of each child in the context of individual needs as well as in the context of the greater community.

The curriculum is enhanced by enrichment in both scholastic and extracurricular areas.
