Lower School (K - 5)
Robert M. Beren Academy offers two dynamic lower school programs for the General Studies portion of the day; Traditional and Montessori. We are the only Jewish Day School in Houston which offers parents this unique choice. Both programs adhere to our mission statement and educate the whole child; academically, socially, and emotionally. We are pleased that while we offer the two unique General Studies tracks of Montessori and Traditional, our Limudei Kodesh classes are grade specific, and our Upper Elementary (4th and 5th) Hebrew is leveled according to exposure and ability, thus broadening the social interactions of all of our students.
Students enrolled in either program join together for activities such as art, STEAM, physical education, lunch, recess, kickball tournament, plays, Oneg Shabbat celebrations, our end of year talent show, as well as other programs throughout the year.
There are also many occasions for students in either program to participate in various academic and community oriented activities, such as:
- Bluebonnet Book Program
- Lower School Talent Show
- Fifth grade end of year field trip
- International Festival
- STEAM Fair
- Scripps National Spelling Bee
- Student Council
- Torah Fair
- Ulpan Maasi
- Experiential Judaic Studies Activities
Our Student Support Specialist is available to work with students in lower school that may need additional guidance.
