About the Middle School
Growth, Front and Center
A Ramaz Middle School education is an encompassing and enriching experience. The Middle School (grades 5-8) strives to teach students to become educationally responsible and self-reliant. We design our curriculum and programs based on our understanding of children’s developmental needs, both academically, religously, and socially.
Our comprehensive Advisory Program helps students navigate the sometimes turbulent waters of early adolescence, and our enthusiastic and devoted faculty ensures that each student reaches his or her full academic potential.
Students develop and embrace their Jewish American identities in a safe and nurturing environment, build moral character, grow scholastically, hone innate talents, discover new interests, and forge lifelong friendships.
- The Middle School has 292 lockers, and the hallway of each floor is painted a different color—purple, red, blue, green, and yellow.
- Middle School students go on educational trips. The 6th grade goes to Philadelphia; the 7th grade goes to Washington, DC; and the 8th grade goes to Israel!
Rabbi Lewitin once applied to NASA for the Teacher in Space Program and was accepted on the National and State levels. (Fortunately — in retrospect — he did not advance in the process to ride the ill-fated Challenger.)
