Building community and bettering the future, one child at a time

At SHAS, we believe that no two students are the same, and no two people learn identically.   We model a whole-child approach focusing on all areas of a child's development and learning, including fostering social-emotional development and cognitive skills.  

By engaging all students -- mind, body, and soul -- we are laying the foundation for lifelong confident learners and happy people.

We offer specialized services for full classes, small groups, as well as for individual students:
  • Open Circle Social Emotional Curriculum with a Jewish lens (Torah values and middot)
  • OT Groups with an outside therapist
    • Fine motor
    • Sensory integration
    • Zones of regulation
  • Social Skills Groups, e.g. Lunch Bunch
    • Collaboration
    • Negotiation
    • Compromise, etc.
There are numerous resources available for students who need learning support and accommodation, organized by Batya Foreman, our Director of Educational Resources and Student Support:
  • Learning specialists support diverse learning needs in reading, writing, math, Hebrew, organizational skills, and other context learning.
  • SHAS teachers work in direct partnership with Gateways: Access to Jewish Education therapists and learning professionals, providing seamless learning support  both inside and outside the classroom.
