Why Kinneret?

Families looking for a school that combines the highest quality academics with Judaic studies and attention to every child’s personal development find that Kinneret Day School provides an unparalleled education.  Generations of children have benefitted from Kinneret’s warm, friendly environment and its commitment to welcoming families of all levels of observance and a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds.

As you enter Kinneret, you hear children’s singing lilting through the hallways.  You observe youngsters reading together, writing collaboratively, davening, exploring technology in the computer lab, studying parasha, preparing science experiments, speaking Hebrew and Yiddish, drawing and painting, investigating geography and world cultures, debating contemporary issues, and much more.  You hear a friendly “Boker tov” offered to every child and see children running to hug their teachers.  You find older students helping younger ones to their classrooms, visiting the Early Childhood rooms to read stories, and leading tours for school visitors.  You notice a rich school history displayed on each wall, administrators actively involved in the lives of every student, and a respectful, engaged, enthusiastic student body.

Kinneret is a school like no other.  It has evolved with the times while still maintaining the elements that have made it great for nearly 70 years: powerfully dedicated teachers, a proven curriculum, open-mindedness and genuine diversity, a deep love of eretz Yisrael and medinat Yisrael, and an atmosphere of joy in learning that infuses everything that we do.

If this sounds like the kind of school in which your child can flourish, contact us now to arrange a visit or to find out more.  We look forward to welcoming you into the Kinneret family.
