  • Values education; academic rigor; a close and supportive community; a full range of specials, field trips, and enrichment; immersion in a second language; and connection to a religious culture and traditions. These are only some of the reasons our families choose Shalom School and the education they so value for their children. Investment in a Shalom School education is one that pays dividends for years to come. Students develop strong identities, critical thinking skills, and the ability and commitment to make a difference in the world. Preparing students to live adult lives rich in meaning, connection, and intellectual curiosity, a Shalom School education is the foundation for a lifetime of learning.
