Sha'arei Bina is a school that was formed by lay leadership realizing a gap in the community vis- -vis our uniqueness.
The process that they went through was researching similar schools throughout the country and consultation with local leaders.
Sha'arei Bina is dedicated to the principle enunciated in Mishlei, "Chanoch la naar al pi darcho," which means educate the child according to his or her individual aptitude and talents.
Our goal is to create a classroom environment wherein the student not only learns to her full potential but develops a love for learning as well.
Each teacher is encouraged to promote creative thinking, encourage discussion and debate and thereby bolster the self-esteem of each student.
Our commitment to our students and their parents is to impart thorough knowledge and deep understanding of Torah, the ability to read, translate and analyze its commentaries, and above all to appreciate and internalize its ethical teachings and timeless values.

My daughter attended Shaarei Bina from 6th through 12th grade. She graduated last year. If I had to do it over I would send her there again.
