SAR is as unusual in its physical structure as in its spiritual makeup.
From the light filled design of each of its buildings, to the openness that is at the core of its architecture, SAR is a school with open spaces, an open heart and a spirit of openness towards each and every student.
Each of our three divisions, the Early Learning Center (ELC), the Academy and the High School, recognizes there is a unique light that each individual brings to our school—the challenge that we welcome each and every day is to find the catalyst that will ignite the sparks and enable each child to shine.
SAR is a place where learning and life come together — where Torah and secular studies are integrated; where a love for Medinat Yisrael and Jewish tradition are fostered; where study is probing and meaningful; where students discover the beauty of their heritage.
SAR is a school that fosters Jewish pride, and a deep sense of concern and commitment to the American-Jewish community, the State of Israel and Jews around the world.
A school where the faculty inspires a love of learning and academic excellence.
