Our Mission

  • To teach elementary school children Torah and Mitzvos (commandments) in accordance with the ideals and aspirations of Torah as elucidated by the Sages of Israel in order to provide excellence in Orthodox Jewish education which will prepare our children to attend the finest seminaries, Yeshivos and institutions of Jewish higher learning.
  • To provide our children with a strong foundation in General Studies that demonstrates understanding and excellence and provides a basis for advancement into any college preparatory high school.
