Hallmarks of the Barrack Middle School Experience

Academic, religious, physical, social, and emotional growth is the focal point of our middle school's dual curriculum in secular and religious subjects.

Students are encouraged to think, question, learn, and make decisions based on Jewish and American values.

Old City, New World
