A Rigorous Curriculum and a Unique Program 

Our core curriculum offers a strong academic experience that is enriched with the history and culture of the Jewish people within the context of a multicultural society. In addition to making cross-disciplinary connections between language arts, social studies, math, and science, students are guided to relate topics of study to Jewish identity in a meaningful way. Math and science classes connect content to real-world applications and state-of-the-art technology programs. At every grade, social justice initiatives foster empathy and empower students to engage with the broader community. Rashi students also express themselves creatively through fine arts in our studio and theater, compete athletically on our fields and in the community through our interscholastic sports program, and benefit from a social-emotional curriculum which teaches them to set positive goals and make responsible choices.
