Welcome to our official website. As you look through the various pages of our site you will get a glimpse of our exciting, dynamic educational institution—the North Shore Hebrew Academy High School. NSHA HS was founded on and continues to operate according to a set of thoughtfully developed and clearly articulated principles. These principles sum up what we stand for at our school.
We believe in educating our children, not merely schooling them. Our school is a place where thinking, analyzing, imagining, and creating are encouraged, nurtured, and rewarded. We don’t want our students to learn merely for the sake of passing a test. We want them to develop intellectual curiosity and the skills with which to satisfy it. We know that learning begins with questions; we teach our students how to make productive inquiries.
