    The Emery/Weiner School is a private, college-preparatory middle and high school located in Houston, TX. We provide the finest academics, educate the whole child, and inculcate a unique student culture. We do this in an environment which is framed by and infused with progressive and pluralistic Judaism.
     
    Our academic program encompasses traditional and progressive methods. While we stress the development of traditional academic skills, we also engage in experiential learning and regular field trips. Our approach to Judaic studies is a modern one which seeks to make the faith and traditions relevant for each student. Our culture is one that empowers students, instilling in students a sense of responsibility not only for their school community, but for the community at-large. The result is a learning partnership in which students feel a sense of ownership in the institution and — more importantly — graduate with profound sense of self and moral self-reliance.
