Lower School Education
The Fuchs Mizrachi Lower School strives for academic excellence in all areas while recognizing and prizing students’ individual differences. We aim to imbue the lower school years with love of learning, Ahavat HaTorah and Yirat Shamayim. Our dedicated team of faculty and staff is committed to nurturing, challenging and inspiring each child’s spiritual, academic, social and emotional growth.
Our formal curriculum is divided evenly between Judaic and General Studies. Within General Studies we place a heavy emphasis on math and language arts in the early elementary years so that students attain a solid foundation for future growth. Upper elementary grades devote additional time to social studies and science. Throughout the Lower School, students work and learn collaboratively as they master the skills necessary for success in the 21st century.
In addition to the active and engaging learning that each child experiences in class, students participate in many exciting informal programs over the course of the year. These programs are designed to build the Lower School community and to infuse it with a passion for Torah values. In addition, after school clubs offer valuable extracurricular learning in Judaics, art, science and physical education.
