For our youngest students, Judaic and General Studies are integrated. In grades 1-5, the day is split with either morning or afternoon being dedicated to one discipline. On alternate weeks, one class has Judaic studies in the morning and General studies in the afternoon. Middle School classes are departmentalized.
