Striar Hebrew Academy of Sharon (SHAS) is a coeducational, Modern Orthodox day school in South-area Boston, serving students toddler-age through Grade 6.
Striar Hebrew Academy is a unified Jewish day school on two campuses: the Yaakov Spellman Early Learning Center at 60 Ashcroft Road houses our early childhood program, for Toddlers through Kindergarten.
The elementary grades 1 through 6 are located at 100 Ames Street.  From the youngest to the oldest students, we teach a dual Judaic and general studies curriculum, infused with Torah values, which stresses the importance of showing respect for each other and embracing individual differences.
SHAS students receive caring, individualized attention, made possible by our low student-to-faculty ratio and our compassionate teachers.  This intimate environment creates a strong feeling of community, which provides a comfort level in which students thrive socially, emotionally and academically.
Our guiding principle is the concept of Torah u'Mada (Torah and worldly knowledge).
The value of combining a Judaic and general education was the vision behind our school's founding and, today, remains at the core of our educational philosophy.
