Striar Hebrew Academy of Sharon (SHAS) is a coeducational, Modern Orthodox day school in South-area Boston, serving students toddler-age through Grade 6. Striar Hebrew Academy is a unified Jewish day school on two campuses: the Yaakov Spellman Early Learning Center at 60 Ashcroft Road houses our early childhood program, for Toddlers through Kindergarten. The elementary grades 1 through 6 are located at 100 Ames Street. From the youngest to the oldest students, we teach a dual Judaic and general studies curriculum, infused with Torah values, which stresses the importance of showing respect for each other and embracing individual differences. SHAS students receive caring, individualized attention, made possible by our low student-to-faculty ratio and our compassionate teachers. This intimate environment creates a strong feeling of community, which provides a comfort level in which students thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Our guiding principle is the concept of Torah u'Mada (Torah and worldly knowledge). The value of combining a Judaic and general education was the vision behind our school's founding and, today, remains at the core of our educational philosophy. Striar Hebrew Academy provides its students with an open and stimulating environment in which they are able to develop an exceptional foundation in both General and Judaic Studies. Our school's curriculum enables our children to develop a love of learning by acquiring skills in critical thought and multi-modal problem-solving that they are able to apply to all areas of study. Our faculty and administration recognize the unique abilities and talents of each student and work with every child utilizing a broad spectrum of teaching tools in order to meet a developmentally appropriate range of cognitive profiles and learning styles. We encourage our students to realize their potential in an atmosphere that is dedicated to personal growth and academic excellence in all the facets of their experience at Striar Hebrew Academy. Families choose SHAS because they seek a challenging and supportive environment where they can be partners in their child's education. Our integrated curriculum leads students to become confident, critical thinkers with a passion for learning. They emerge as young Jews with a well-defined sense of their own Jewish identity and values.
