DAY SCHOOL (K-8)

 

Maayan Torah Day School is accredited through AdvancEd and received an above-average score through the accreditation process.  Maayan offers a K-8th grade learner-centered education.  We prioritize students' active involvement in the learning process. We focus on every individual student's needs and progress, creating engaging classrooms and substantive learning.

 

In Maayan’s student centered learning environment, the student is the central participant in the learning process. We utilize student engagement strategies to foster an excitement for learning which develops SELF-MOTIVATED students. Additionally, our education emphasizes positive student-teacher relationships, where the student’s best interest is highly valued.

 

Our curriculum focuses equally on General and Judaic Studies. We believe that General and Jewish Studies have a synergistic relationship.  For example, the study of classic Jewish texts amplifies children’s abilities to think critically in their general studies.  

 

Our Judaic program is text-driven, with a strong focus on primary Torah sources. We focus on the skills needed to develop independent Torah learners. Our school offers an environment which conveys the joy and meaning of Torah and Mitzvot. Our staff is committed to ensuring a positive and accepting feeling that inspires a love for Judaism.

 

Our General Studies program utilizes curriculum that enable children to continually progress. Small group work as well as project-based learning are instrumental in achieving this goal. Maayan is currently Accredited through AdvancED, an international school accreditation recognized by the Federal Department of Education. Maayan education features:

   *Small class size

   *Professionally trained staff

   *Blended grades
