At the Lower School, grades 1-5, SAR’s open architecture promotes open thinking, boundless energy and a warm, inclusive atmosphere. We open our students’ minds to history, literature, math, science, tefillah, Gemara and Medinat Yisrael – all through the lens of Torah. In each grade, we follow a curriculum created by our own administrators and faculty, and accredited by the New York Association of Independent Schools. Our secular and Judaic curricula are both academically challenging and developmentally appropriate. We nurture in our children the understanding that Torah informs who we are in all of our interactions, and how we hold ourselves in the world.
