About the Upper School
At the Ramaz Upper School, leaders are made every day. Students are inspired, guided, and advised as they explore the world around them and make their way to their dreams. During these four years, students grow academically, personally, religiously, and spiritually; gain the confidence and the skills to meet the challenges ahead; and develop a sense of responsibility for the Jewish people, all Americans, and all humankind.
The Upper School faculty is a talented team of devoted educators who nurture each student’s abilities through individualized educational programming. Co-curricular programs provide abundant opportunities for chesed, Israel advocacy, athletics, the arts, and political activism; there are numerous clubs, publications, science research programs, Shabbatonim, seminars, and trips. With Central Park and the Met on our doorstep, students and faculty also take full advantage of Manhattan culture.
Most important, we have an energized, motivated, diverse student body that demonstrates our core values of menschlichkeit: respect, compassion, and community service. As students begin to explore the world, they come to know themselves.
The Ramaz Upper School experience provides a natural progression to future life, careers, and personal fulfillment.
