The new multi-age integrated curriculum is AMAZING! I am so impressed. The first month was pretty much evaluating the students to see where they are so they can really implement this new strategy of 'teaching to the child'. The kids are not sitting in class bored while the teacher helps ONE child who is lagging. The first Friday schoolwide oneg was a big hit with the kids all in their school shirts singing together with parents at a special Israeli style luncheon provided by Parent Org. The food was so amazing I thought they hired a professional caterer - turned out one of the moms made it! We have lots of talent! The middle schoolers have combined their field trips so all three grades are going together to each of the trips which gives the kids more opportunities to apply their learning in the real world. They will all go to TEVA Learning Center to experience nature this fall and learn more about making our school eco-friendly. They just completed the ropes course together last week and had a blast. The middle school group has already become a tight knit family.
Hebrew Acadamy is a wonderful school with a warm, caring staff. The new multi-age learning program allows each child to learn at the pace and level that is right for them. Both of my children love the school and the love of learning the school fosters is clear.
Wonderful, high quality, challenging education by teachers who truly care about encouraging each child to stretch as far as they can through individualized teaching methods. Warm, safe family/community atmosphere.
Hebrew Academy is great and getting better all the time. The teachers are excellent, the courses challenging, and the Jewish values which are taught are those which I share. Students leaving Hebrew Academy are far ahead of their high school counterparts. The school is a great value for all that the students get.
Hebrew Academy is an excellent school. I have my three children in the school and am very impressed with the outstanding academic atmosphere. My older child's class is more than one year ahead in Math and Science than public school kids. He will have 3 Regents exams this year... before High School! The teacher/student ratio makes for a very attentive environment, and the administration is receptive to concerns. In the past, this has not always been the case, but the new Head of School is AMAZING! My children are in a safe environment with their peers, and have felt comfortable with the level of Jewish education- it was never imposed on them or us. I am grateful there are things they can learn at school that I could never offer them at home.
The school is amazing. The children come out well ahead of kids in any other school. The teachers use many different methods and emphasize academic learning and critical thinking in a variety of ways.
Hebrew Academy's strength is its teachers. They are of the highest quality and use a variety of methods and approaches to instill a desire to learn in the students.
