The Rabbi Joseph H. Lookstein Upper School provides a stimulating educational environment in which young men and women can develop their commitment to a life of Torah learning and mitzvot, to the land and country of Israel, as well as their appreciation for the values and achievements of Western culture.
Most important, we seek to graduate individuals who embody the values of menschlichkeit, reflecting moral refinement and ethical sensitivity.
Through its curricular and co curricular offerings, the Upper School encourages its students to pursue intellectual challenge, to love learning, and to involve themselves in communal activity.
The program offers a rigorous, integrated dual curriculum in general and Judaic studies with an emphasis on the Hebrew language.
The curriculum encourages students to engage in independent learning, to pursue their interests and talents, and to develop their ability to think and to express themselves creatively and critically.
Students are challenged to seek connections across the disciplines, to integrate their learning and to value the process of intellectual discovery and artistic creativity.
The co curricular programming nurtures each individual's leadership potential while emphasizing the importance of Jewish identity, of experiencing the values of social responsibility and of communal obligation.
Through its guidance program and its advisement services, the Upper School assists its students to develop into well-rounded, religiously committed, fulfilled young adults.
With its exceptional record of college admissions, the Upper School prepares its students for the academic and personal challenges of their higher education.
A significant percentage of our graduates decide to defer their college studies as they pursue a year of Torah learning in Israel.
Graduates of the Ramaz Upper School are poised to establish lives of religious meaning and personal fulfillment in the modern world.
