Foundational learning in every subject
Students learn to organize, prioritize, and manage their own learning and develop expertise in Torah learning, literacy, numeracy, science and the arts that will serve as the foundation for advanced studies as they grow. Students are taught by teachers who reach beyond the parameters of the classroom to enrich, innovate and help foster a love for learning.
Social and emotional development
Our Lower School curriculum includes a strong focus on social and emotional development. Within the classroom, teachers select instructional resources and models in consonance with social-emotional learning goals, and are mindful to ensure collaborative learning opportunities and recreational times assist students in developing a healthy sense of self and enriched interpersonal skills.
MDS is dedicated to supporting all types of learners. Classrooms are set up with neurodiverse learners in mind. We have SLP, OT and PT providers on premises and students benefit from access to learning specialists and enrichment teachers in our Learning Center.
