Welcome to The Abraham Joshua Heschel School!
We are a unique pluralistic Jewish day school, emphasizing academic excellence as well as awareness of social and communal responsibility through an offering of a superb integrated curriculum of general and Judaic studies.
Our progressive academic platform, which emphasizes scholastic excellence, integrates curriculum across disciplines, and features side-by-side teaching from Judaic and General Studies teachers in every classroom. Our faculty work together to present unique curriculum bridging educational concepts with tenets of the Jewish faith.
Our approach is also synonymous with community. Everyone here -- children, parents, alumni faculty and staff-- matter deeply as we collectively strive toward a shared goal of inclusiveness, tolerance and respect. Our students thrive in this environment, and carry those convictions forward in their lives, both inside and outside of school. They become citizens of the world, truly embodying the spirit of tikkun olam (saving the world), hesed (charity) and social action/justice.
We invite you to come and see this program in action and first-hand! Call us to schedule your tour 212-784-1234 and begin your application process.
