Each month we hold events for our students and families to connect and immerse themselves in Jewish Russian culture.
Our teachers believe in an education for success, based on maintaining a strong foundation in our Jewish Russian culture and heritage.
Many students return after graduation as leaders for our teen discussion groups and debates. These alumni-led groups are open to students from ages 13 – 18. At 15-16 years old, teens may become teacher’s assistants.
Our Russian courses are tailored to each student, depending on proficiency. We also have courses focused on Russian as a second language. We boast AP accreditation and host several AP certified classes for our students in high school.
We believe in teaching students how to think critically. Thus, our mathematics program is focused less on rote memorization & more how to analyze and think.
True to our Jewish roots, we emphasize a basic understanding of the Hebrew language. The degree of complexity depends on the level of the student.
We hold the instruction of Jewish Russian history as critical to our students’ development. By the end of their journey, our students are proud and invested in their Jewish Russian identity.
The arts are an intrinsic part of our culture, which we foster by our many programs. Thus, art and theatre is a language we learn together to express our emotions and thoughts.
Music is a powerful way to learn Hebrew, learn about traditions and share joy with our community.
PREPARATION & TUTORING!
We celebrate our Jewish traditions as family. At Shalom, we develope community centered programs for cultural events, Shabbat, and Jewish holidays. Our children bring Jewish culture to life by bringing traditional meals and performing plays and music.
We are a Jewish Russian school for families that desire their children to understand, appreciate and grow in their heritage. As our children grow, so do we: our programs adapt with them as they flourish in each particular life stage.
We consider ourselves a family where students, parents and the community come together to foster a deep connection to their Jewish-Russian rootsstressing appreciation and love of Jewish history and traditions.
