Brief History

Founded in 1952 as the Portland Hebrew Day School.  Proud to be the only Jewish day school north of Boston, MA.  Accredited by the State of Maine.

Diversity is Our Strength
Levey is a socio-economically and culturally diverse school.  Families of all faiths, beliefs, and backgrounds are active parts of our community.
Levey students come from Portland, South Portland, Westbrook, Saco, Cape Elizabeth, Gray, Scarborough, Falmouth, Yarmouth, Freeport, Popham, and Gorham.
Parent Involvement
An Arts Emphasis
The Arts are abundant in everything our students do and learn.  Performing arts, visual arts, and music are central to the core of our program.   
Levey parents are actively engaged partners with the school.  There is a vibrant Parent Association which holds frequent family get togethers at local parks, Sea Dogs, Red Claws, and Mariners games, meet ups to ice skate, bowl, among a host of other activities. 
In the Classroom
Low student:teacher ratio
Very challenging, personalized program for all students pre-K to middle school
There are three homerooms in our Lower School:
  • Pre-Primary (Pre-K and K), Primary (1-2), and Intermediate (3-4)
There is one homeroom in Upper School (5-8)
Expert teachers who are great partners with parents
Foreign Language
Hebrew Language instruction begins in Pre-Kindergarten and continues throughout middle school.
Our campus is closed for the remainder of the school year due to concerted efforts to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak.  Our students are maintaining a continuity of learning through distance learning plans including both synchronous and asynchronous classes.
The admissions office will work remotely so please contact us for inquiries.
