General Studies

Children spend half their days in General Studies and the other half in Hebrew/Judaic Studies.

Students in all grades have classes in art, music, P.E., technology (grades 2-4), library, and science. We have a separate science classroom with two science teachers. We offer STEAM approaches that are transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary.

Instructional Staff for General Studies

Professional development for faculty members is a high priority at Ramaz. Each year, teachers and administrators attend national and regional conferences in education  and participate in training and courses given by schools and universities throughout the area. In addition, experts in various fields consult with Ramaz teachers and administrators to ensure that we are knowledgeable about current best practices in the field. Professional development is also embedded into the daily life of our teacher staff. We have three full-time in-house instructional coaches in the areas of literacy, math, and design thinking.  The coaches help to ensure that teachers are continually working to improve their own teaching practice and are successfully implementing evidence-based instruction in the core subject areas.
