Back to the Ramaz School Legacy
We are a co-educational Modern Orthodox Yeshiva Day School for students from nursery through grade twelve. Our mission is to provide a thorough grounding in Torah, mitzvot, the Jewish people and culture, Zionism, and the State of Israel, while putting equal emphasis on the finest values of the American Democratic heritage and traditions of Western civilization.
Love of Torah and Commitment to American Ideals
An informed love and reverence of Torah is critical to the observance of mitzvot relating to God and humanity, commitment to the Jewish people, and responsibility for all humankind and the physical world. We foster intellectual honesty, a spirit of objectivity, respect for diversity of views, as well as the equality and dignity of all people.
Intellectual Growth and Menschlichkeit
Intellectual growth and self-esteem are cultivated within a warm and nurturing environment that integrates the values of Torah. We encourage critical and creative thinking as we help students to excel academically. We expect Ramaz students to uphold the highest standard of menschlichkeit in their attitudes and behavior, which must reflect morality, decency, modesty, and kindness. We view chesed as a fundamental goal, promoting a sense of obligation to serve the Jewish people and all humanity as they improve our world (tikun olam).
Hebrew as a Living Language
The Hebrew language is more than a tool to access classical Jewish texts; it is central to our identity as Jews in the modern world, and our identification with the people and the State of Israel. Therefore, all Judaic Studies classes are taught in Hebrew. Our students graduate with a strong knowledge and love of the Hebrew language.
