About Us:

The Heschel School was founded in 1983 and it continues to be nationally renowned for the values and ethics upon which it was established. We now have more than 800 students in nursery through to grade twelve, spanning three buildings. Our approach to education, pluralism, and concern for students' intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development informs our daily interactions in the school community. Our school is characterized by team teaching and an integrated curriculum. We select faculty who have demonstrated mastery of their subjects, encourage academic excellence, and support our mission.

We strive to cultivate the spiritual lives of our students and nurture their commitment to Jewish life. We help them understand and respect a range of Jewish practice and traditions.

Our Mission:

The Heschel School sees as essential the creating of a community with families from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds, practices, and beliefs. The school is devoted to equal participation–boys and girls, men and women–in all aspects of the school's religious, intellectual, and communal life.

Our school is dedicated to the values and principles that characterized Rabbi Heschel's life: integrity, intellectual exploration, traditional Jewish study and practice, justice, righteousness, human dignity, and holiness. It regards the texts of the Jewish tradition and the history of the Jewish people as fundamental resources for developing ideas, beliefs, behaviors, and values to shape and inspire the lives of individuals in our time.

Our Curriculum:
In an academic setting that values open, engaged inquiry, the school's curriculum interweaves the best of both Jewish and general knowledge and culture throughout the day. Within the context of this integrated and interdisciplinary approach, the school honors the intellectual integrity of the core subjects. 

Our educational ideals are drawn from the strands of the Jewish, Western, and world traditions to which we belong. They are reflected in our deep concern for the whole child and the balance in each student's academic, aesthetic, emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual growth.

Our History:

The creation of the Abraham Joshua Heschel School was spearheaded by founder Peter Geffen in 1981. Together with educators and lay people from a broad spectrum of the Jewish community, they worked to project a vision for a pluralistic Jewish school. In the fall of 1983, The school opened its doors to twenty-eight students with the commitment to offer a first-rate education in a diverse, pluralistic, Jewish environment.
