Perelman Jewish Day School-saligman Middle School

Tel: (215)635-3303
Grades: 7 - 9 | 104 students
Robert Saligman Middle School strives to strike a balance between spirituality and academics, as well as between informal and formal educational methodologies.
The dual language curriculum in Judaic and General Studies is both exciting and challenging.
Saligman's educational philosophy emphasizes the following: a student-centered, developmentally appropriate program; a thematic approach which reflects the students' expanding involvement in the world around them; integration of General and Judaic Studies; the study and discussion of Jewish texts, creating an environment where Jewish values become internalized and serve as a basis for making well-informed decisions; a nurturing and respectful environment which is responsive to individual students' learning styles and needs; and learning opportunities outside the core curriculum, including elective mini-courses, visiting speakers, meaningful class trips, and trans formative experiences which link Jewish values to everyday life.
