- Located on a 162-acre wooded campus on the Charles River, Rashi
attracts students from areas surrounding Boston, Jamaica Plain,
Wellesley, Newton, and Needham. Our 300 students from Kindergarten
through 8th grade benefit from a warm, academically challenging,
and values-rich environment that cultivates commitment and respect
for learning in the classroom and outside.
The Rashi interdisciplinary curriculum weaves Jewish studies seamlessly with secular learning, integrating material from varied subjects through the school day. Rashi teachers are adept at differentiating their instruction, designing lessons around students’ readiness, interests and learning profiles.
Rashi’s dedication to Social Justice extends from classroom curricula into all-school projects, individual initiatives, and community partnerships.
Rashi shares a campus with NewBridge on the Charles, a multi-generational village where Rashi students’ and NewBridge residents’ lives intersect and enrich each other.
Rashi, the Boston area’s Reform Jewish K-8 Independent School, is a diverse community welcoming interfaith families.
Transportation by bus is available.
