Ramaz Lower School

Tel: (212)774-8010
  • The Ramaz Lower School is a modern orthodox, coeducational yeshivah day school spanning grades one through four.
  • Embracing the finest aspects of Jewish and Western culture, we help each student develop a personal commitment to a life of Torah and mitzvot in the modern world, as well as a love for the Jewish people and Medinat Yisrael.
  • We nurture and support each student's quest for academic excellence while emphasizing the highest standards of menschlichkeit, reflecting moral sensitivity, personal refinement and human decency.
  • Throughout the lower school experience, we offer children opportunities to use their minds, to discover the world around them, to become creative thinkers and to develop their critical thinking skills.
  • As the students develop their academic skills, we help them begin to master the foundation of the Jewish studies curriculum with a major emphasis on the Hebrew language.
  • At the same time, our students begin exploring the various disciplines that constitute the foundation of the general studies curriculum.
  • We prepare them academically to meet the challenges of their continuing education.
