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.

11th grade Honors Biology students use a gene transfer technique to add a gene from the bioluminescent ocean bacterium V.fischeri to a harmless strain of the common gut bacteria E.coli. This technique, called transformation, resulted in E.coli that glowed in the dark. This is the same method that has been used to produce genetically engineered bacteria such as those that produce human insulin and other medicines, and those used for bioremediation (environmental clean up).
