A Rashi education lasts a lifetime. Our graduates are equipped with the tools to succeed academically in any setting. They possess core skills, deep self-awareness, the confidence to try new things, and solid Jewish values that serve and guide them for the rest of their lives. Located in Dedham, our school is a great, convenient location for students who come from more than 20 different towns in the Greater Boston Areas like Needham, Lexington, Framingham, and Brookline.


As a reform Reform Jewish school, our mission is to provide a dynamic education that incorporates both Jewish and secular studies. We work closely with our students to provide them with a nurturing environment that is academically challenging while also igniting a passion for learning.

Our students’ strong skills in writing, math, science, and critical thinking are affirmed by every measure: from classroom assessments and standardized test scores to secondary school acceptance rates and achievements in high school and beyond. 


Academically motivated, accomplished, and committed to improving their world, Rashi alumni thrive at the most challenging independent, Jewish, and public high schools and beyond. Our outstanding high school placement record is the natural result of the type of students Rashi produces: capable, confident, self-aware learners who take on leadership roles in educational settings and social justice opportunities.

Learn more about our private Jewish school by visiting us for a school tour or an information session.
Rashi Graduates are self-confident, independent learners who know how to achieve academic excellence and how to be part of a team. They take their mission to repair the world very seriously and they are committed to giving back to their communities and being a bridge to people in need.
