Boy's Elementary Division
Gan Academy focuses on educating the whole child as a capable, unique and limitless individual. Each Child is provided with the tools necessary to reach their fullest potential and lead a meaningful and successful life into adulthood.
Relationships, individuality, and social-emotional development guide all teaching. We include multiple modalities in lesson plans, such as visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning. This enables each child to gain from every lesson in a way most beneficial to them, as well as ingrains information into their long term memory.
Gan Academy provides a well rounded Judaic education that includes Torah and Chassidus. All studies are taught according to the Rebbe's directives and meet the highest of academic standards. A great emphasis is placed on meaningful learning, presenting our students with an understanding of the words and ideas found in Torah, Tefillah and Chassidus and practically applying them to their ה עבודת in their daily lives.
All general studies curricula meet and exceed the New York State Education Department's guidelines. Our child-centered learning program provides students with high level literacy, math, science and social studies education.
Our student's social-emotional well being lies at the center of Gan Academy's educational model. Thematic units, structured activities, and imaginative play help promote the different levels of social-emotional growth, enabling our students to naturally develop higher order thinking skills that are crucial for decision making now and in the future.
Our devoted staff members are warm, kind, and dedicated to student growth. They engage in regular teacher development training and seminars to develop their skills in the classroom. Teachers meet regularly with educational leaders to review curriculum, expand their knowledge base, and discuss developments in the classroom.
At Gan Academy we foster a sense of community within our larger parent body through our active PTA, Town Hall meetings, and school-wide events.
