The Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls strives for academic excellence in both Judaic and General Studies. Our academic program is designed to provide our students with a comprehensive education, emphasizing the development of critical thinking skills, research skills and written and oral expression. Academic preparation of our students for admission to institutions of higher learning of their choice is a primary goal. Our academic offerings and extensive extracurricular program are geared toward instilling in our students a love of learning, a desire for personal growth, a respect for and understanding of the democratic process with the unique opportunities provided by the American experience, as well as an approach to life that emphasizes optimism, intellectual curiosity, empowerment of women, leadership, self awareness, community service and respect for all people, regardless of race, creed or economic status.
We provide our students with the educational and technological tools and the motivation to assume roles as women in the Jewish family and as professionals, and we prepare them to make decisions as to how they, in their own lives, will each create an individually appropriate balance between these roles. They will be prepared to live lives dedicated to Torah, to family, to continued personal growth and to the State of Israel. They will be motivated to assume prominent leadership roles within the Jewish community, as well as the community at large.
In keeping with our commitment to creating a warm and nurturing environment in which each student is supported in reaching her academic and personal goals, and to respecting the needs of diverse learners, a dedicated team of professionals works closely with staff and students to foster a positive school culture of joy and achievement.
Our learning specialist serves as a liaison for students, parents, teachers, administrators and outside professionals to ensure that each student is provided with the tools and resources to succeed in her academic pursuits. The learning team works closely with the Hewlett-Woodmere school district to access additional academic support when appropriate and to have a comprehensive system in place to ensure that mandated testing accommodations are provided for those students that require them.
