As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, success depends on collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving. At The Rashi School, education is forward-thinking, innovating in research and practice on how children learn and emphasizing the skills students will need to be successful in the world they are inheriting.


The school’s integrated curriculum weaves Jewish studies - including social justice, which is uniquely emphasized at Rashi - seamlessly into the secular curriculum. This interdisciplinary approach helps students discover connections between one subject and another, between themselves and the community, and between their community and the world at large.


At Rashi, the Boston area’s only Reform Jewish independent school, students in Kindergarten through grade 8 learn in an atmosphere infused with Jewish values, providing knowledge, pride, and appreciation for a life informed by Jewish values. The school shares a 162-acre wooded campus with Hebrew SeniorLife’s NewBridge on the Charles community, enriching the student experience with multigenerational friendships and perspectives.


The Rashi School’s graduates are accomplished and engaged students who have a strong sense of self and Jewish identity and who understand their obligation to make a difference in the world.
