Torah School Of Greater Washington

Tel: (301)962-8003
  • The Torah School of Greater Washington has been established to educate, motivate, challenge, and inspire Jewish children of all backgrounds without regard to race, color, country of origin, or sex.
  • Our students are provided with a curriculum of excellence in both Judaic and secular studies which equips them with all the tools necessary to successfully continue their higher education.
  • This includes a strong emphasis on the basics and on higher thinking and comprehension skills.
  • Our youngsters develop pride as Jews and Americans and a strong love for Eretz Yisrael.
  • The ambiance which permeates the Torah School is that of warmth and caring.
  • Our outstanding staff members serve as role models whose main interest is what is best for each child.
  • They understand that, as Hiam Ginott wrote, "Concerning a teacher's influence: I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom.
  • It's my personal approach that creates the climate. It's my daily mood that makes the weather.
  • As a teacher, I possess a tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous.
  • I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration.
  • I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or dehumanized.".
