Meyer Preparatory School, a David Posnack Jewish Day School, offers a unique, innovative educational experience that combines an outstanding general studies curriculum with an innovative and empowering Jewish studies curriculum. At Meyer Prep, our focus is on our students’ academic achievements and their character development. We believe this is achieved most successfully when parent(s)/guardian(s) and our school faculty work together to create an insatiable yearning for discovery and knowledge.
Our goal is to create:
EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION:
Our school aims to use the Jewish ethos of hard work and study to produce graduates of the highest caliber, accepted to the most prestigious institutes of higher education. Meyer Prep promotes academic excellence as a central goal. Graduates of our school will master advanced studies in both the arts and sciences. In addition, the concept of team membership and participation is stressed through athletics and visual and performing arts.
PROUD, KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND COMPASSIONATE JEWISH CHILDREN:
Our philosophy is firmly rooted in Torah and is dedicated to the global community of Jews and the State of Israel. The Meyer Prep student is one who is exceptionally well-rounded, learning in an environment that establishes harmony between Hebrew language, religion, Jewish culture and a variety of advanced secular studies. Hebrew language, the vehicle of Jewish renaissance, will be taught as the portal to our collective past, present, and future.
Our school emphasizes the development of ethical and moral values from a Judaic point of view. Civic responsibility and participation is emphasized. Our school places great importance on the concept of social action. Meyer Prep stimulates an awareness of Jews around the world, as well as a strong focus on human rights for all people. It emphasizes tzedakah (philanthropy) and creates an awareness of inequities. “Tikkun Olam” focuses on how we, as individuals and as a community, can help improve ourselves and our world.
