Academic Studies

Our Middle School faculty works as an interdisciplinary team made up of science, math, humanities, Hebrew and Judaic Studies. The team works together to create a dynamic curriculum which is exploratory and challenging and incorporates student generated questions and concerns. Curriculum is guided by Common Core Standards to determine age appropriate content and skills. The middle school team develops these basic concepts and skills into student-centered, inquiry based units. Below are a few examples of our interdisciplinary units.

Grade Seven

Essential Question: How does one’s perspective impact the telling of history?

Grade Eight
