MIDDLE SCHOOL AT RASHI

Life-Changing Education. World-Changing Students.

The Rashi Middle School, comprising Grades 6-8, is a very special experience. Students benefit from outstanding academics and a whole-child approach to education. Guided by expert faculty, Middle School students engage with a rigorous academic program. They develop traditional academic skills—writing, close textual analysis, research, presentation—while building 21st century skills like critical thinking, collaboration, information synthesis, flexibility, and media literacy, giving them a comprehensive toolkit to thrive in high school and beyond. Our students benefit from an experiential, project-based education that fosters growth and independence.

“Rashi Middle Schoolers are joyful learners and independent thinkers. We honor student voice and choice, their passions become our faculty’s passions. Students become leaders from the moment they enroll at Rashi, preparing them to make an impact in the world.”

Becoming Change Agents

With social justice and identity as central themes in our curriculum, and through robust advisory and student leadership programs, Middle School students learn how to be their best selves and lead for a better tomorrow. Rashi graduates are self-aware, confident, passionate, and intellectually engaged. They are empowered to make a difference and have moral foundations grounded in Jewish values to make ethical decisions. They are change agents, advocates, and activists who listen openly, think critically, and understand the complexities around problems in our world. They not only empathize but take action to bring about a more just world.
