Our Environment Creates a
Love of Torah & Enthusiasm for Learning
Mizrahi Torah Academy is a Yeshiva Day School designed to develop the next generation of Jewish leaders by molding students into moral, caring, thinking, educated, and contributing members of society. Our school environment creates a love of Torah and Yiddishkeit, an enthusiasm for academic learning, curiosity through experimentation and creative approaches to learning. Through a unique blend of quality academics with interactive chesed projects, we are creating the future leaders of the Jewish community. Here are some of our school highlights:
+ Individualized attention: Class sizes are usually set at 8 students per class, with a maximum of 10 students if a particular class’ dynamics allow for it. This smaller, warm classroom environment promotes independent problem solving and a passion for learning.
+ Mastering Middos: Our weekly focus on a practical Middah utilizing Torah, stories, and parables builds life-long character skills.
+ No Tests or Homework in Elementary School: Our policy reduces unnecessary academic pressure and provides time after school for individual interest development. Lack of letter-grading promotes enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn. If a child needs extra support for a particular skill, teachers may work together with the parents in arranging supplemental learning or review at home. Middle school students receive occasional homework to help them prepare for the rigors of high school.
+ Teachable Moments: Our academic program promotes a “seize the teachable moment” philosophy of education which empowers the teachers to mold the classroom experience to meet the needs and interests of the students.

Why Choose Mizrahi Torah Academy
Where We Stand Out
Small Class Size
By having small class sizes, and grouping students by abilities, we can provide individualized attention where no child slips through the cracks or is bored in class. Small class size also promotes independent problem solving, builds confidence, and promotes a passion for learning.
Mastery of material can be evaluated in ways other than tests. Our teachers constantly monitor student performance to highlight strengths and weaknesses. Our no tests/no homework policy in elementary school reduces unnecessary academic pressure and provides time after school for individual interest development. Lack of letter-grading promotes enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn.
Unique Educational Approach
Our experiential curriculum and individualized approach to education creates a strong sense of community where character development and middos are as primary to the curriculum as the textbooks we use. The ultimate result is happy, confident, well-spoken, involved contributors to the Jewish community and greater society.

“MTA has made such a difference in our daughter in just a short time. Enrichment classes have added so much to her overall well-being and she is excited and happy at school. She loves to share what she is learning and seeks to incorporate her new knowledge from Judaic classes into our existing family customs. We thank each one of the staff for their input towards her growth and look forward to seeing her continued accomplishments in all areas.”

Their approach to teaching is so unique and innovative. The teachers are so dedicated to the success of the children and demonstrate that learning can be fun all the while cultivating a love for learning. We are so grateful to Hashem that our kids are excited about going to school every day.”
