The new upper school building and refreshed lower school building will enable Luria to grow to welcome upwards of 360 students, building a home for our entire community. We are excited to welcome and host families and community events.
Our new Music Room will house acoustic and electronic instruments, practice space, and a recording studio. Our Art Studio will inspire students to explore a variety of mediums including drawing, painting, collage, clay, and sculpture. Students will learn to take risks and to express their ideas and feelings.
Our new state-of-the-art STEAM Lab will enable us to expand our Project Based Learning, giving students in K–8 a space to explore, problem-solve, build, analyze, stumble, and try again. Students will develop as creators—learning how to access knowledge and building their capacity to generate a new understanding of the world around them.
PLAY Our new gymnasium, two new rooftop playgrounds, and new yard will allow for gym class, recess, body breaks, physical and occupational therapy sessions, and athletics all without leaving the school premises.
LEARN Our new beit midrash will be a space where older students can come together in prayer. It will house an aron kodesh and sefer torah which will be available to students for prayer and study. We will have a library of sifrei kodesh and space for classes and communal torah study.
WELCOME At Luria, all needs-students learn together in the same room. Luria needs spaces for individual services including occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, literacy work, and counseling. Our new spaces are being configured with all of Luria’s students’ needs top-of-mind.
CULTIVATE Our Montessori approach encourages students to be mindful about what the foods they eat, a lesson which extends to our Judaics lessons, where students learn about foods related to laws and holidays. Our learning kitchen will allow students to prepare foods from start to finish, while learning about our tradition. Working with Grow Torah, our rooftop greenhouse will be a student-run educational garden.
