The Luria Primary School curriculum combines General Studies, Judaic Studies and Hebrew Immersion through a child-centered and cross-curricular approach to learning. We follow the Montessori method combined with use of NYS Standards and Developmentally Appropriate Practices, and track studen development and progress through careful observation and documentation. We use Montessori materials in our classrooms, which are explored through whole group, small group, and individual activities. We use mixed age groups, placing children into leadership roles and allowing children to learn from their peers. These mixed age groups enable us to support children’s development based on their abilities as
opposed to age or grade level.
Each classroom is divided into eight primary areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Math, Language, Cultural Subjects (Science and Social Studies), Art, Hebrew, and Judaic Studies. The materials in each area are based on the needs, levels, and interests of children.
