Our approximately 50 students range from grades K-8, and our intentionally small classes tend to have between 5-10 students each. We are a pluralistic Jewish school, welcoming families from all Jewish backgrounds and practices. We are known for our individualized approach to each child and family, and we emphasize individual problem-solving, creativity, discovery, and self-advocacy.
