Shulamith School for Girls is excited to announce that it has purchased a new campus in Inwood. The new home will house an entire N-12 school. In order to accommodate exponential growth, award-winning Nassau County school architecture firm BBS has designed a state-of-the-art campus.
Highlights of the design include a performing-arts center that seats over 400, gymnasiums, library/media centers, lecture laboratories for the sciences, small-group instruction rooms for academic support, and early-childhood classrooms that surround a two-story indoor playground.
The campus is being designed in tandem with educational technology experts to enable cutting-edge integration of technology in education.
Founded in 1930, Shulamith is the oldest Orthodox girls’ school in North America. In 2000, Shulamith opened a school in Woodmere, which became an independent entity four years ago. Today, 546 students study in the early-childhood, lower, and middle divisions of Shulamith at three different facilities in the Five Towns.
Shulamith is set to open a high school in the fall of 2015. The addition of a high school completes Shulamith’s nursery through 12th-grade educational experience. For more information about Shulamith, please contact executive director Rabbi Perry Tirschwell.
