Robert M. Beren Academy offers two dynamic lower school programs, 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 and Ivrit classes are grade specific, thus broadening the social interactions of all of our students.
Students enrolled in either program join together for activities such as art, music, physical education, lunch, recess, field trips, 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
- Bracha Bee
- Family Reading Night
- Fourth grade trip to San Antonio
- Fifth grade trip to Austin
- Geographic Bee
- Hebrew Plays
- International Festival
- Parent/Child Night
- Science Fair
- Scripps National Spelling Bee
- Student Council
- Torah Fair
Our Academic Support Specialist is available to work with any student in lower school that may need additional guidance.
