The Rashi School, located on our NewBridge campus, offers an academically challenging K-8 education in an environment infused with Jewish values. Encouraging questions and open conversations, Rashi's joyfully Jewish approach to learning helps children engage with the world and grow into the people they can become. 25 Residents from Independent Living make their way over to the Rashi School each week to volunteer in Kindergarten and First Grade classrooms, provide one-on-one reading support for children, and help out in the school library.
Several residents also donate their time to support the learning needs of students at The Avery School, a Dedham Public Elementary School for children in grades 1-5. In the Spring of 2012, The Avery School will move to a brand new facility that is provides comfortable access for varied physical needs and comfortable working space for residents and students to learn together.
