The Abraham Joshua Heschel School is an independent school named in memory of one of the great Jewish leaders, teachers, and activists of the 20th century. The Heschel School sees as essential the creating of a community with families from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds, practices, and beliefs.
Our approach to education, pluralism, and concern for students' intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development informs our daily interactions in the school community. Our school is characterized by team teaching and an integrated curriculum. We select faculty who have demonstrated mastery of their subjects, encourage academic excellence, and support our mission. Our faculty understand the importance of participating in the creation of a respectful community that embraces ethical and moral living.
