We strive to optimize learning and make the school experience both

Educational & Enjoyable

Children, by nature, love to learn. By developing an interactive, dynamic, unpressured, and relaxed academic atmosphere, we strive to optimize learning and make the school experience both educational and enjoyable.

Our academic program is carefully designed to create the ideal environment for teaching and learning both Torah Studies and General Studies. Our ultimate goal is to nurture the next generation of Jewish leaders by molding students into moral, caring, thinking, educated and contributing members of society through the prism of Torah. We believe mastery of material can be accomplished during the school day without the pressure of tests and homework, giving our students an opportunity to explore extracurricular interests and enjoy family time after school. With small classes, grouped by abilities rather than age, we have watched our students become independent problem solvers, develop confidence in their abilities and a passion for learning.

Our teachers build on this passion and nurture each child’s individual talents and abilities. As a team, we have created a collaborative, respectful and safe environment which nourishes the mind, builds self-esteem and nurtures the neshama.

Torah Studies

Learning the love of yiddishkeit, Torah and mitzvos begins in kindergarten and continues to be the cornerstone of the Torah studies program through elementary and middle school. While content is critical, our emphasis is on teaching skills and continually reinforcing them. We believe through skill mastery, our students will have the ability to pick up a sefer or siddur at any time and study on their own or even teach others. That type of independent learning is our definition of success.

Through text-based learning, our students study chumash, navi, tefilah, mishna, gemara, halacha and yahadus. But within every subject we teach, we strive to not only impart knowledge, but also inspire good and positive middos. How we treat each other in the classroom as well as the chessed opportunities we can offer to the community are inherent in our learning. From Avraham Avinu who taught us the importance of hospitality to our Gedolim who taught by example, we have models to inspire our own behavior in school, at home, and always.

Engage. Inspire. Challenge.

General Studies

Those are the guiding goals of our General Studies curriculum. In kindergarten, we lay the foundation of literacy and numeracy by weaving high academic standards with interactive play. Our teachers introduce phonemic awareness and mathematical reasoning skills in an engaging way that complement a child's natural desire to learn and explore.

In elementary and middle school, we focus on building critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Lessons in language arts, including analytical reading, grammar, vocabulary, spelling and writing as well as mathematics, are taught both in groups and individually, allowing for both academic and social growth. By fostering a love of learning through exploration and nurturing a child’s sense of curiosity, we provide a solid educational foundation as well as the instinctive desire to ask questions, research answers, and apply lessons learned to real life situations.

A wide variety of enrichment programs adds an interesting dimension to our curriculum and helps identify and develop individual talents and interests. From Kung Fu and dance to art, woodworking, gardening and cooking, our ever-changing list of enrichment programs are designed to enhance creativity and provide additional opportunities for learning. By fueling our students’ innate curiosity and focusing on their individual strengths, education becomes a lifelong journey.

Classroom Approach

Classes are firmly based on the best principles of Jewish education, in a way that reaches the neshama of each child and brings out their unique light. We work to instill a love of Hashem and a Torah lifestyle. All of our academic subjects are taught through the prism of Torah, resulting in happy, accomplished children who are grounded in Torah, compassionate, highly educated, kind, solution-oriented leaders who are passionate about making the world a better place.

MTA maintains a very high standard of academic excellence through cultivating the individual creative gifts of each child. We believe in hands-on exploration and experiential learning rather than spending long hours sitting in desks and memorizing data. Our goal is to instill the skills necessary for children to access their innate curiosity to learn and utilize those skills to do so.

Due to our small class sizes, children receive extensive individual attention to assess and support their growth, combined with an environment that encourages intrinsic motivation. Classroom curriculums are geared toward specific stages of child development and multi-age classrooms bring a sense of belonging and community. Throughout their education at MTA, each child will have the opportunity to develop the life skills necessary to succeed in life as happy, well-grounded, passionate, kind, successful and responsible people.

MTA provides an education that focuses on nurturing and educating the whole child, including physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual wellness. This supports and encourages them to develop into their best possible selves. Children raised in this environment will grow to develop a love of learning and will in-turn continue on a lifelong journey of personal growth. Our teachers work to establish core values of respect and collaboration while encouraging independence.

MTA is keenly aware that children learn best through play. Time spend outdoors running, jumping, moving, playing and burning energy are all critically important to a child’s overall well-being and their ability to absorb new information. We offer a healthy balance of indoor and outdoor activities, individual and group learning, textbook and experiential education to promote an environment that is rich in opportunities for academic and personal growth.
