A Message from the Head of School
Welcome! As parents, the task of educating our children is at once all-consuming and deeply rewarding. In the Politz Day School family, your child will be valued and educated to the highest standards in both Judaic and General Studies. Both the Torah and the Talmud point to the roots of Jewish education and our nation’s historic dedication to this calling. The Shema tells us, “vishinantam l’vonecha – you shall teach your children” and the Talmud tells us in Tractate Kiddushim that one must teach one’s child a livelihood, including all the prerequisite knowledge that comes along with this parental responsibility. As educators, we dedicate ourselves fully to this task in partnership with you, the parents.
Our faculty is rightfully proud of Politz Day School’s stellar academic reputation. Experienced and state certified, our teachers truly have your child’s best interest at heart. They are warm, nurturing professionals who help your child reach skyward and expect more from themselves, all the while building their self-confidence and capabilities.
Your child will develop critical thinking skills while building a solid foundation in Math, Science, Social Studies, History, and Language Arts. Our rigorous Judaic Studies program includes Mishna, Chumash, Navi, Yahadut, Talmud and Tefillah.
In addition to these core curricula, we are committed to instilling the proper midot and derech eretz (character traits) needed to be an “Adam Hashalaim,” a complete and well-integrated person. Our program is rounded out with a strong emphasis on Ahavat Eretz Yisroel—love of Israel—through an excellent Hebrew language program featuring native Hebrew-speaking teachers. Your child’s education will be rounded out with music, art, computers, and physical education.
But our academic program is only one part of what makes our school so special and unique. I cordially invite you to visit the school and sense the amazing ruach (energy and spirit) of both our staff and students. You truly must experience it to see what makes Politz so special. Please contact our Director of Admissions, Rachael Ovitz, at 856-667-1013 or firstname.lastname@example.org, to schedule a tour. I look forward to meeting you!Rabbi Avraham Glustein, M.S., Ed, Head of School
