KEVUTZOT

Elementary (K-4th Grade)

Our Kevutzot program provides kindergarten through fourth grade students with a rigorous and joyful learning environment, one in which each child is deeply known. Integrating Judaic and secular studies throughout the day, teachers nurture the academic, emotional, and spiritual growth of their students. 
 

KEY FEATURES OF THE KEVUTZOT EDUCATION EXPERIENCE INCLUDE:

  • Intensive Jewish text-study guided by The Standards for Fluency in Jewish Text and Practice, a curriculum developed in partnership with The Hadar Institute. 

  • Structured literacy program with explicit and systematic teaching of all aspects of English Language Arts.
