Program

Middle School

Our Middle School is a place where children can confidently take on greater responsibility and find their own distinct voice.  As younger peers look to our middle school students as leaders, our students get the opportunity to exercise independence and ingenuity—constructing robots in our Innovation Lab, publishing academic essays on subjects they are passionate about, and designing plans to address real-world issues like homelessness.

Our rigorous, relevant and engaging curriculum emphasizes public speaking and presentation, preparing them to become bar mitzvah, then moving on to high school and college coursework, and future leadership positions. Our curriculum gives students a solid foundation of skills and content in all academic areas while fostering the use of critical and higher order thinking skills necessary to face the demands of an ever-changing world. Inspired by the capstone 8th Grade trip to Israel, our students graduate as exceptionally mature and proactive young thinkers and citizens.

Our outplacement program prepares your child to excel in Los Angeles’ competitive secular and Jewish high schools. Beginning in 7th Grade, our teachers, administrators, and counselors work with your whole family to help your child matriculate to the school that fits them best. 

In fact, 95% of our graduating 8th Graders are accepted to the high school of their choice.

civilizations, and then designed 3-D artifacts to demonstrate how water helped shape that world."
