As Scottsdale's only co-educational Jewish high school, Nishmat Adin - Shalhevet Scottsdale offers its students an unparalleled educational and social experience.
We are proud to offer a strong academic program in both General and Judaic studies. Students elevate their critical thinking and writing capabilities, while learning about the world around them through our fantastic Humanities program. They develop analytical prowess and a deeper understanding of our physical world through our amazing STEM courses. They learn to channel their interests with an eye towards their futures and unique paths through our Technology, Career and the Arts Electives. They expand their ability to communicate with others through our Foreign Language offerings. They gain an in-depth understanding of our heritage, texts, traditions, nationhood, and philosophies through our comprehensive Judaic Studies Program. Finally, Nishmat Adin does not offer a "one size fits all" education. Each is taught according to his or her own level and capabilities, in an environment replete with academic and emotional support and guidance, to ensure student enjoyment and success.
Nishmat Adin offers classes through a variety of formats to create the best opportunities for its students. Most classes are taught by our phenomenal Arizona - based faculty. In addition, students have the opportunity to take remote courses in order to enhance their General and Judaic learning, by enabling them to gain further access to dozens of additional electives and AP courses. Nishmat Adin's unique approach to educational attainment - utilizing the best available resources to enhance its academic program - grants our students access to incredible educational opportunities, while enabling our students to design unique programs of study that meet their needs and interests.
Substantive, meaningful, and joyful Jewish engagement is at the core of everything we do. Whether tying academic lessons into our Jewish values, celebrating holidays together, attending Shabbatons, creating social connections, and more, our students are immersed within a joyful and uplifting Jewish environment.
Nishmat Adin offers multiple extracurricular opportunities, including hands-on STEM activities, Book Club, Journalism, and more. Students also have access to the rich array of community-based activities, including sports and theater. Additionally, as a newly founded school, there is plenty of opportunity for students to flex their leadership and creativity muscles by starting extracurricular activities that reflect their own passions.
Nishmat Adin students are emotionally supported throughout their high school journeys. Our students are the best part of our school, and we work tirelessly to ensure that their experience is a positive one.
