Your child at rashi

Life-Changing Education. World-Changing Students.

The Rashi School’s academic program offers students a unique educational experience. We take a child-centered, skills-based approach rooted in Jewish values. We model and cultivate innate curiosity and the capacity to observe, discover, create, collaborate and communicate, and we foster a continuous desire to grow as learners and as people. At Rashi, your child is pushed to take academic risks.

Through both faculty and student-led pedagogies, your child will become a global problem-solver. Rashi students practice critical thinking and analytical skills through interdisciplinary learning, making connections between classroom learning and the world. They regularly interact with organizations, professionals, children, and adults outside of their community. This intentional practice will help your child develop listening skills, empathy, a sense of social justice and deep caring for the world, and a kind Jewish spirit connecting acquired knowledge to timely and relevant global issues. In Reform Judaism, this is called Tikkun Olam: repairing the world.
