Opening Minds, Bridging Differences, Living Jewish Values.

Academic Excellence

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

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.

Year after year, the Heschel Debate team has proved to be one of the top teams in the league.
