WELCOME TO LURIA
“Guide each child on an individual path.” Proverbs 22.6 At Luria, each child learns to think, observe, and reflect in their own way. Instead of teaching the correct answers, we teach our children to ask the right questions, leading them to discover the answers for themselves. Ours is a nurturing, child-centered environment dedicated to academic excellence and a sophisticated knowledge of Jewish text and Jewish tradition. Above all, Luria fosters Jewish pride – Ahavat Yisrael – and a deep sense of compassion and commitment for all mankind – Ahavat Olam.
Ours is a remarkably diverse community that models for the world what it means to learn with and from people of all backgrounds. We are a unique group of families and educators that believe deeply in the power of meaningful relationships and respectful dialogue.
Luria’s curriculum encourages critical thinking, deductive and inductive reasoning, peer cooperation, and personal responsibility. Students’ progress is carefully tracked based on New York State Standards as well as Montessori expectations.
Rooted in Jewish law and tradition, our approach is dynamic and vibrant, in constant dialogue with modern values and ideas. We give our students skills, knowledge, and experiences to live a full Jewish life.
At Luria, every subject is woven into another to form a meaningful web that supports a child’s innate drive to find meaning in life. This is manifest through a Montessori-based holistic curriculum, in which students become attuned to the interconnectedness of all things.
"I love Luria! It transformed my children socially and emotionally. I witness changes each year and I am amazed at what the school has helped my children overcome."
"I can't imagine our children at any other school. Their teachers are incredible and I can spend each day trusting that my kids are safe, happy and inspired."
"Terrific experience for our granddaughter. We look forward to her second year."
"The children could not stop talking about how much fun they had in school, and how they were disappointed that they wouldn't be returning until Monday."
