School Notes

  • Maimonides School's mission is to produce religiously observant, educated Jews who will remain faithful to religious beliefs, values, and practices as they take their place as contributing members of general society. Maimonides provides students with both an outstanding religious education and an excellent college preparatory general education in an atmosphere that reinforces their commitment to the values of Torah and to the observance of mitzvot, and that fosters a strong sense of identification with the State of Israel.

    Our Philosophy:

  • Torah and mitzvot—the study and practice of Halachah—are the quintessential core of Judaism, and they must be taught in an honest, sophisticated and challenging manner.
  • Torah study is enriched by our understanding of science, philosophy, literature, art and music, which in turn is enhanced and enlightened by the teachings of Torah.
  • The School must provide an all-encompassing religious atmosphere in which the observance of Halachah in the totality of its ethical and ritual components is central.

    Our Goals:
  • To expose our students to the beauty of the Jewish tradition and the power and profundity of the Jewish faith.
  • To encourage our students to strive for moral and spiritual excellence.
  • To provide our students with the finest possible general studies education so that they can continue their academic training in the colleges and universities of their choice.
  • To ensure that families from all sectors of the Jewish community seeking to give their children an intensive Jewish education are welcome in our school.
  • To produce graduates who will become respected and contributing members of the Jewish and general communities.
  • To forge in our students a spiritual bond and sense of identification with the State of Israel.
  • To imbue our students with an attitude of respect toward one's fellow man (k'vod habriot) and love of one's fellow Jew (ahavat Yisrael).
