As said by many Rabbaim, once you build a strong foundation in Torah you must continue to grow. LIHA truly believes in that message through the expansion of our Middle School. The newest chapter in our school brings tremendous excitement as we have continued our promise to provide strong jewish education to all of our children.
Led by Rabbi Ben Kaniel, our Middle School strives to excel in its Judaic Studies through the addition of a new Gemara curriculum. They study the Torah portion with a weekly Parsha discussion in which the children ask each other interpretive questions and share their thoughts; these are then collected and sent home for further study with their families. This model is their introduction to text study and is woven throughout their learning of Tefillah, Parsha, Megillah, Haggadah, and texts related to other holidays.
The goal of our Middle School is the intellectual development and academic achievement of all students along with the personal and social development of each student. Our Middle School features an educational program that is comprehensive, challenging, purposeful, and integrated.
They are asked to develop skills in critical thinking and creative problem solving, to analyze and synthesize. In this way, students cultivate an ability to think for themselves that will serve them well in high school and beyond.
In LIHA our students experience the general ed program through reading, writing, science, mathematics, social studies, music, STEM, and art.
A highly effective Hebrew Language program. As early as our pre-school program students are exposed to Hebrew Language in a variety of ways
Kindergarten and 1st grade children are immersed in Hebrew language study incorporating art, music, snack, cooking and baking, and critical thinking games to build vocabulary, grammar, and communication abilities, as well as reading and writing in Hebrew.
LIHA’s early childhood program provides a meaningful and compelling early childhood environment for Jewish families seeking a licensed nurturing environment while providing the highest quality Jewish education for our students.
