Our rigorous academic program covers a wide range of subjects including mathematics, science, language arts, social studies, Hebrew language, Jewish history, and more. We strive to empower our students to become independent and critical thinkers who excel academically.
Fostering Jewish Identity
Rooted in Jewish traditions and values, we strive to create a sense of belonging and instill a deep appreciation for Jewish heritage and culture. Our Judaic studies curriculum integrates Hebrew language acquisition, Torah study, Jewish history, and Mitzvot (good deeds) into daily learning.
Through engaging lessons, holiday celebrations, and community service projects, we aim to nurture our students' Jewish identities and strengthen their connection to the wider Jewish community.

Aside from our rigorous academic curriculum, we offer a variety of engaging programs and extracurricular activities to complement students' learning experiences. From music and art to sports and technology, we provide opportunities for students to explore their interests and develop their talents.
Our school community emphasizes the importance of holistic development. We offer character education programs, leadership opportunities, and community service initiatives to help our students grow into responsible, compassionate, and well-rounded individuals.
Contributing to the Local Community
We take pride in actively contributing to the Palm Beach Gardens Jewish Community and the wider society. Our students are encouraged to participate in community service projects, engaging in acts of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and social justice work.
Through partnerships with local organizations, our students learn the value of making a difference in the lives of others, while developing empathy and compassion. We believe in fostering a sense of social responsibility and teaching our students to be active and engaged citizens.
