Our mission is to enable each student to reach her full potential as a committed, G-d fearing Jew and a productive member of society.
Student learning, character development, individual dignity, and the creation of a Torah environment are the primary focus of all school decisions.
Temima teachers inspire students in areas of academic knowledge, personal responsibility, and commitment to the well-being of others.
Students are provided an academic environment defined by intellectual rigor and the highest academic standards.
Students are valued individuals who require a variety of instructional approaches and diverse opportunities to demonstrate their achievements in learning.
Providing challenging expectations will increase individual student performance.
Co-curricular activities that promote team building, relationship skills, and ethical behavior and that encourage the student’s musical, artistic, dramatic, athletic, and organizational skills are vital to the school’s educational philosophy.
Self-esteem is built when a student makes significant progress in addressing her intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs through instruction in areas such as academic studies, health/fitness, relationship skills, and mussar (ethics).
Teachers, administrators, parents, and the community share the responsibility for advancing the school’s mission.
We are committed to continuous growth to enable students to become confident, self-directed, life-long learners.
Our goal (vision) is to prepare young women:
to live a life of service to G-d.
for the highest levels of university education and Judaic Studies.
for the career of their choice.
to build a Torah home.
to respect and value all people as being created in the image of G-d.
to establish healthy relationships.
to navigate the stages of womanhood in good health.
to be leaders in the Jewish and broader community.
to take responsibility for the future of the Jewish people.
to live as Torah Jews even while involved in the secular world.
Temima graduates will have received:
an excellent general studies education that prepares them for entrance into college, provides them with practical life skills, encourages a life-long love of learning and enables them to pursue the career of their choice.
an excellent Torah education that prepares them for the meticulous observance of mitzvos, provides them with skills for self-study, instills within them a commitment to life-long growth, inspires them to revere G-d, provides them with a rich understanding of Jewish history and their place in it and gives them a broad, deep base of Torah knowledge that augments all of the above.
