School Notes

  • The Epstein School's unique academic bilingual program and blended learning approach to education provides students with a competitive edge. The school teaches through two languages: Hebrew and English. Their commitment to language-based education continues with the introduction of Spanish in the seventh grade. Young children who learn a second language develop stronger communication skills, and in a global economy that provides them with better economic and employment opportunities. Professional educators know that both right and left brain development are critical to student academic performance and success. At Epstein, students are provided with the very best educational foundation that emphasizes the development of both sides of the brain, with a very strong right brain component. The advantages of bilingual education have been researched for decades and specifically the benefits of Hebrew education for right brain development has been documented in a book by New York Times Best-selling author, Daniel Pink in his book A Whole New Mind: Why Right Brainers Will Rule The Future. Supported by an atmosphere that values a caring community and service to others, The Epstein School is confident that their students will thrive and develop academic skills to their maximum potential. As leaders and experts in education, Epstein uses a unique, integrated curricular approach, which has been recognized for its excellence on both the national and international level. Epstein instructs in a manner such that multiple intelligences, languages, metacognition skills and subjects are taught concurrently. Students must know how to access, understand, evaluate and apply vast amounts of information to succeed in whatever profession they might choose. The school strives to create an environment in which students learn how to apply their knowledge and skills independently.
