The Beit Simcha Religious School is welcoming to all learners, in philosophy, and most importantly, in practice. That means, as a Jewish educator, I will take the time to get to know you, your child, your goals in Jewish education, the needs of your child, and how your child learns best. We will work together to ensure that your child and your family enjoy this Jewish educational experience, and get the most possible out of it. An environment of love for learning and the guiding vision that all learners are valued allows for learning that is rigorous and customized for each learner.
Each weekly lesson is based on the Understanding by Design model, in which students have a deep interaction with the material in order to develop enduring understandings that last far beyond each lesson. The instructional design at Beit Simcha is based on differentiated instruction, in which lessons and materials are customized to meet the needs of each student. This instructional design ensures that all students are engaged, and proceed through lessons at a pace that is appropriate to individual needs.
In order to make this highly-customized form of instruction possible, parents and guardians are encouraged to take an active role in religious school community, which includes volunteer opportunities during class sessions, and family education opportunities throughout the school year.
