General School Mission

"The curriculum at B�nai Israel Community Day School focuses on the development of cognitive, physical, and social skills. This development is all structured within the bounds of a Judaic learning community. The Rabbi is a visible and valued member of our faculty. The atmosphere of the whole school is warm, accepting, and loving. Positive reinforcement is given for constructive and on-task behaviors. Our parents have high expectations, which are balanced by high support. Students can come to B�nai Israel Community Day School from twelve weeks of age until the end of Pre-K. The curriculum focuses on the continuity of students� development within a rich Jewish heritage."
