Dedicated to educating the whole child
The Mission Statement of Mizrahi Torah Academy
From kindergarten through eighth grade, Mizrahi Torah Academy is a South Florida Jewish day school dedicated to educating the whole child, their mind, body, and spirit, with the ultimate goal of molding Torah leaders of tomorrow. By keeping class sizes small, hiring passionate and dynamic teachers, and removing the pressures of tests and homework, our students become independent problem solvers, develop confidence in their abilities, and a passion for learning. Our innovative, individualized school setting creates a strong sense of community where character development and Middos are as primary to the curriculum as the textbooks we use. We place a strong emphasis on both Limudei Kodesh and Limudei Chol to ensure a well-rounded education. The ultimate result is happy, confident, well-spoken, involved contributors to the Jewish community and greater society.Watch Our End of the Year Slide Show
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.
We Love to Hear from
If you have feedback or words of praise that you would like to share, please feel free to email us.
Rabbi Doniel & Devora Bensoussan
“Attending MTA has resulted in a positive transformation of our daughter’s academic, social, and emotional development through personal attention given by intuitive teachers and a talented administration. MTA creates a loving atmosphere conducive to learning and growth that maximizes each students’ abilities. The individualized curriculum and small class sizes allow our children to take ownership of their learning.”
“The advanced and individualized learning reassures me that my son is constantly challenged. The hands-on extra curriculum, which includes gardening, cooking, and woodworking help my child imagine and create. The intergenerational program encourages my son to learn and practice his communication skills while learning life lessons from his elders. And the unique Gedolim class focusing on the giants in our heritage teach the students whom to admire and emulate.”
Rabbi Yaacov & Sarah Laredo
“Our daughter has gotten more out of MTA than we could have ever imagined. She has developed so beautifully and her educational level has skyrocketed. The beauty in which she internalizes the lessons has a tremendous positive effect on our whole family.”
Mrs. Amalia Papir
“Our kids started at MTA this year. They have really loved the environment that the school has created and the smaller class sizes have really benefited our children in many aspects.”
Craig & Dawn Edelstein
“MTA is a loving family environment. The small class size allows for better quality student-teacher relationships. Rather than just being taught Judaism, a love of Judaism is being instilled our son.”
Mrs. Natasha Len
“Be it from a Torah or secular curriculum, MTA works to build your child’s Middos and allows them to be individuals, each with their different strengths and personalities. The staff is kind, respectful, and friendly. It is beautiful to feel their warmth.”
