Opening Minds, Bridging Differences, Living Jewish Values.

Academic Excellence

“Intellectual efforts...stirred by a blazing passion.”
-Abraham Joshua Heschel

The Abraham Joshua Heschel School fosters a lifelong love of learning in an environment of intellectual challenge and academic excellence. By weaving together the best of both Jewish and general studies we support each student’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual growth.

High School juniors in Accelerated Biology, and students in the Science Research Initiative assisted seniors in Biotechology and Advanced Topics in Genetics to perform a Forensic DNA fingerprinting lab exercise. Techniques followed in this lab are used routinely by scientists who work with DNA.
