Imagine taking your child to the store for a new pair of pants. You walk over to the salesperson and tell her your child’s age and expect to get him/her a perfectly fitting pair of slacks. In this scenario, many children would end up with poorly fitted clothing. The tradition in education follows a similar path. Children are divided by age and acquire the same knowledge base as the entire group. On the contrary, the key to the best education is finding the right fit for every child.

The quest for academic excellence continues daily at Gottesman RTW Academy, and one of the components of this endeavor is to view students independently of one another and to make sound educational decisions based on mastery. We will continue to view our students as individuals, and we are committed to moving every student forward from whatever place they start. At GRTWA, one size does not fit all.

GRTWA has small class sizes, robust online distance learning with individualized instruction for each student, flexible classroom spaces, social workers providing social emotional support to the students and families, and affordable tuition. We value every family.

Gottesman RTW Academy is an independent community day school educating students from early childhood through 8th grade. For more information about our school, please contact Klara Sussman, Director of Outreach, at ksussman@grtwacademy.org or 973-584-5530 ext 3016.
