Mission Statement

Shulamith School for Girls is committed to providing excellence in Limudei Kodesh and Limudei Chol, for Bnot Yisrael, and transmitting the Mesorah of Am Yisrael.  We develop a love for Torah, Mitzvot, Medinat Yisrael, Eretz Yisrael, Klal Yisrael and Safah HaIvrit in an atmosphere of warmth, concern for individual differences and positive encouragement.

The moral and ethical code of תורה permeates every aspect of school life including the
curriculum, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, and all programming. This promotes
refinement of character, responsibility, respect for others, Yirat Shamayim and sterling Middot.
Personal growth, self actualization, modesty of demeanor and attitude, team spirit and
leadership qualities are hallmarks of a Shulamith education. These values are fostered by
exposure to all learning, including music, drama, art and dance, community service, and
chessed. The dedicated faculty and support staff of the school guide students to discover
their talents and their voices, and grow into healthy, intelligent adults that contribute positively
and creatively to school life, family life, the community and the greater society.
The paramount goals of a Shulamith education are the transmission of eternal values, the
development of students into genuine Shomrei Mitzvot ,sensitive to all people and their issues the world over, and lifelong study of the moral lessons of תנ״ך and Divrei Chazal.  Reading and textual skills, critical thinking, effective writing, public speaking, knowledge of history, proficiency in mathematics and appreciation for science, are all taught to help students reach their full potential.
