Exciting Teachers, Excited Children.

The Jewish Academy prides itself in carefully selecting faculty who are excited about teaching and who excite children about learning. Every teacher displays enthusiasm for what they teach, which is evident by the energy in each and every classroom. They understand not only the subject, but also the developmental issues applicable to the age levels they teach. The faculty is attuned to student’s needs, with small classes facilitating frequent student/teacher, one-on-one interactions. With teacher and student on the same page, the combination is a winning one.
