At Rodeph Sholom School, we believe in the importance of helping students to develop both skills and an understanding that knowledge acquisition is a continuous process in which ideas build one upon the other. We accomplish this through a combination of research-based methods, hands-on experiences, guided practice, and intentional teaching. We encourage our students to take initiative, to ask questions, and to engage actively in the process of learning.

Appreciating developmental stages, we help/prompt students to understand themselves as learners and to challenge themselves through a program that is academically rigorous and simultaneously supports students as they build their independence.
