This is our first year at Hillel and we are so thrilled. From intake to classroom we have had great experiences with staff. I leave my daughter daily, knowing she will be cared for by all staff as if she were their own. They make learning fun, interactive and relevant, and I know our values are being infused into her daily learning not just academically but socially.
Our daughter has grown and blossomed at Hillel's Early Childhood Centre. We come over from Canada 3 days a week - a 45 minute drive if traffic and the border cooperate, so that she can have a Jewish education in an environment that fosters Jewish values. Her teacher is warm and enthusiastic and knows exactly where our daughter is developmentally. We're very pleased with her experience there.
Hillel Day School Is a private Jewish Day School that is caring, super educational, and forward thinking. It teaches its students and staff alike to value outstanding education, to help people in the community,, and above all, to value each other'similarities and differences. The staff at Hillel seeks to educate everyone,with the firm premise that everyone can learn. Others who visit are impressed by the friendliness of teachers and students alike. They walk around and see students engaged in learning and not just listening to lectures. The students learn the meaning of their religion and how it affects their daily lives. Lifelong friends are made and good values are carried with them wherever they go. Hillel is making structural changes and could use a bigger library inventory and a garden for a student learning center. Being a private school, funds are not always plentiful. An outside gift would be so very welcome. We would love to have the help!
I have only been a Hillel Parent for 2 months now but I can already confidently say that we made the right choice sending our child to Hillel. It goes without saying that the academic aspect of the school is top notch with exceptional teachers (two in each classroom in fact) and small class sizes. But what I like the best is the way that Hillel focuses on developing the whole child. The result is a group of extremely confident, charismatic, passionate and overall exceptional students.
Hillel Day School provides a fantastic and safe enviornment for my child to receive a quality education and also learn how to be a good person. Hillel's approach to a combined judaic and general studies program enhances my child's learning experience. The small class sizes are amazing. Everyone at the school is so friendly, helpful and supportive. I would highly recommend Hillel.
Our school exemplifies all that is good in learning and being part of a community. Skilled teachers and a caring administration create a 'home away from home' for our children every day. Learning in the context of a dual curriculum --- every day consists of both general studies and Judaic studies --- our children receive an education that is second to none. Teachers keep students interested and help them reach their maximum potential by engaging them in thoughtful and nurturing ways. Parents can volunteer in meaningful ways which contributes to families feeling connected to their school. Great beauty exists in our school, which houses preschoolers through middle-schoolers. Role models are formed, friendships are made, and new meaning is found in shared experiences. As a parent, Hillel Day School has provided many reasons for us to feel pride and joy in the accomplishments of our children. As students, our children enjoy a love of learning while also feeling passionate about making the world a better place. Choosing Hillel Day School represents one of the best decisions we've made on our parenting journey. Our family has been enriched in ways that will last a lifetime.
