Education

Gindi Maimonides Academy is committed to achievement. We teach our children to be prideful and inspired to lead ethical lives as dedicated B’nei Torah and proud Americans. Whether our children are learning Torah, performing Mitzvot or engaging society in a meaningful manner, our students are inspired to challenge themselves and their perceived boundaries.  

Curiosity is at the forefront of every curriculum objective that we undertake. Our warm and nurturing environment stimulates children to embrace learning with a passion that is unmatched – the trademark of a “Maimonides” education. Our motto, “The Maimonides Way,” has been developed to provide a harmonious and integrated Judaic and General studies education, which meets the highest standards.
