The Idea School

The Idea School, a Jewish, co-ed, project-based learning high school, at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades. Project-based learning (PBL) uses traditional academic subjects, but centers them around inspiring and meaningful questions for students to answer. PBL also integrates the arts into learning, and aims to dissolve the walls between school and the world. The Idea School is excited to bring this interdisciplinary and engaging learning to the Jewish community, and the JCC is a perfect location for it, since students will have numerous ways to connect with the facility's populations, and to enrich themselves and their studies with arts programming and physical education classes. The Idea School is grateful to the JCC for partnering with us on this exciting journey. For more information about the school, please visit our website at www.theideaschool.org or contact the Head of School, Ms. Tikvah Wiener, at tikvah.wiener@theideaschool.org.
