PreK – 12th grade

Brimmer and May, a coeducational, independent, nonsectarian, pre-kindergarten through grade twelve day school, in Chestnut Hill, has been cited as a “Model School” by The National Association of Independent Schools. A total of eight schools in the U.S. and abroad were so designated based on their ongoing efforts to successfully adopt seven Essential Capacities for the 21st Century.

A 21st Century Imperative—A Guide to Becoming a School of the Future, by NAIS, identified eight unifying themes that comprise ‘Essential Capacities for the 21st Century and which independent schools should work to adopt: Academically Demanding; Project-based Learning; Classrooms that Extend Beyond School Walls; Digital Technologies and a Global Perspective that Infuse the Program; Vibrant Arts Programs; Learning Communities; A Culture of Engagement and Support; and Transformational Leadership. The Report noted that Brimmer and May implements all of these Capacities.

The school recently launched a Global Studies Diploma Program. The new Honors Program offers students an intellectual extension to required class work. Pre-kindergartners learn French, and students may study French, Spanish, or Mandarin in later grades. Upper School students participate in Winterim, a study tour program. Students traveled to Belize, China, South Korea, Germany, Switzerland, and India in March. The Creative Arts Diploma Program provides students with the opportunity to delve more deeply into a chosen art form.

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, success depends on collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving. At The Rashi School, education is forward-thinking, keeping pace with innovations in research and practice on how children learn and emphasizing the skills students will need to be successful in the world they are inheriting.

The school’s integrated curriculum weaves Jewish Studies— including social justice, which is uniquely emphasized at Rashi —seamlessly into the secular curriculum. This interdisciplinary approach helps students discover connections between one subject and another, between themselves and the community, and between their community and the world at large.

At Rashi, the Boston area’s Reform Jewish independent school, students in kindergarten through grade 8 learn in an atmosphere infused with an appreciation for, and love of, a life informed by Jewish values. The school shares a 162-acre wooded campus with Hebrew SeniorLife’s NewBridge community, enriching the student experience with multigenerational friendships and perspectives.

The Rashi School graduates accomplished and engaged students who have a strong sense of self and Jewish identity and who understand their obligation to make a difference in the world.
