The Emery/Weiner School, a private, college-preparatory middle and high school located in Houston, TX, is different! First, we provide the finest academics; second, we educate the whole child; third, we maintain a unique student culture; and fourth, we do all of this in an environment that is framed by and infused with progressive and pluralistic Judaism. Our academic program encompasses traditional and progressive methods. For instance, we stress skills such as writing and reading, but also engage in experiential learning and regular field trips. Our approach to Judaic studies is a modern one, which seeks to make the material and the traditions relevant for each student. And our culture is one that empowers students in order to create in each a sense of responsibility not only for their school community, but for the greater community at-large.
