School vision and mission
The Akiva School community all share a clear sense of purpose and common set of beliefs as defined in our school vision and mission statements:
- School Vision:
A community that inspires lifelong learning, religious growth, an enduring connection to the Jewish people and the State of Israel, and a commitment to making the world a better place.
We are a Jewish elementary school committed to each student’s academic success, personal growth and development of Jewish identity. Through a partnership of school and home, The Akiva School fosters a nurturing and collaborative learning environment. Our students develop a love for learning and become independent, creative and critical thinkers.
The core values that guide us are rooted in Jewish tradition. They are expressed for our community in the form of Five Promises…
- I promise:
- To respect myself and others
- To treat others with kindness
- To respect my property and the property of others
- To be responsible
- To give my best
