Inspired by Jewish values, the mission of Jewish Middle School’s inclusive community is to guide our students to become engaged learners and passionate leaders so that they may ultimately contribute to a purpose greater than themselves.
JMS will model how to celebrate the middle years through serving the whole child, by integrating Jewish values and providing a thoughtful academic program in a joyful environment that is made stronger by its intentional diversity.
IN THE IMAGE OF GOD
As beings of infinite value, each student is treated in a way that recognizes their dignity, humanity, and unique spirit.
Each student is a major stakeholder in building the daily community and, as such, is responsible for and energized by the web of relationships created in our community. Our community is one that celebrates diversity as much as it values unity.
We value learning for its own sake and for the doors that it will open in our students' futures. We value persistence and effort in an appropriately ambitious instructional program. We encourage students to ask the big questions, not only to accelerate their own growth, but to empower them to change the world.
We value integrity and intentionally create an environment where students dive deep into the ethical principles of their own backgrounds, with the intent of helping each student develop their own moral compass from which to interact with the world.
