Beit Rabban Day School is a preschool and elementary Jewish day school on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. We provide a progressive Jewish and secular education through an integrated curriculum that emphasizes critical thought, creative exploration and project based, small group learning.
Our early childhood center uses a Reggio Emilio approach and nurtures the natural curiosity of children, providing a loving environment for children to explore the world around them. Our elementary program, currently serving students from kindergarten through fifth grade with plans to build through eighth grade, fosters a lifelong love of learning. Students gain excellent skills: becoming equally proficient at studying Jewish and literary texts, practicing scientific experimentation, understanding mathematical concepts and speaking Hebrew as near-natives. Our faculty guide students to reach their potential in the classroom and in their social-emotional development.
As an intentionally non-denominational school, students come from diverse backgrounds and learn that respecting a multiplicity of perspectives is integral to Jewish life. Now in our 25th year, Beit Rabban Day School has produced exceptional graduates who have thrived in high-level academic environments and as Torah learners.
