General Studies

  • All General Studies faculty are NYS teacher-certified or have post-collegiate degrees in their subjects. Most are “master teachers” with over 15 years experience; our Science teacher has a doctorate.
  • MHDS meets and exceeds NYS Education Dept. standards. We administer state assessment testing on elementary and secondary levels as benchmarks of progress.
  • Maimonides High School is a nurturing environment that blends local and boarding students of varied ages and abilities. We follow NYS standards, developing students’ potential to take Regent exams in Hebrew, Integrated Algebra, Geometry, Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, Biology & Global History
  • We schedule professional in-service teacher development days, and encourage educational conference attendance. We increased teacher meetings and inter-faculty communication, monthly thematic APPS projects with memorable field trips for middle school students.
