Kindergarten - Grade Four
Our daughter has attended THA for the past two years. She's happy, confident, and is receiving a great education. But, most importantly, THA provides her with values and a cornerstone of her moral foundation.
Throughout the Lower School, we emphasize critical thinking along with basic skills. The Junior Great Books Program introduces our students to the finest of children's literature. It focuses on interpretive reading, writing and discussion through the Socratic method.
Our writing curriculum emphasizes expository and creative writing skills, which enable our students to develop the ability to communicate clearly, concisely and effectively.
The THA curriculum is fully integrated throughout the grades with Jewish and general studies taught in mutually supportive contexts. In one unit on China, for example, Jewish life in Asia is discussed at the same time that the history of the region is reviewed.
