Can't say enough about this school! What a beuatiful warm environment at HLA. My child is learning things in the kindergarten that I am simply just amazed by. He loves talking in hebrew and is genuinely excited about going to school. Can't say enough!
My daughter was a student at HLA from grade 1 through grade 5. She is currently in Middle School and is doing very well. HLA has prepared my daughter not just academically, but socially and emotionally for this big milestone in her life. HLA's school community provided her with the necessary academic skills such as: taking pride in your work; diligence; love of literacy; appreciation for the Arts & Music; and goal setting. My daughter was in a diverse school environment at HLA. She was taught to respect her peers and teachers, to stand up for what's right, not to be a bystander, and to work cohesively with her peers. She has made long-lasting friendships at HLA. My daughter and her classmates were accepted to top schools: Cunningham, Mark Twain, David A.Boody, and other prestigious private schools. My daughter and her friends apply everything they learned at HLA to their Middle School experience. I feel blessed she had such an amazing opportunity to be inspired by warm, loving teachers and a rigorous fun curriculum! My daughter loves her new school, but says the HLA is HOME!
Love hla my kids love to go to school the teachers are great!!! The staff are very polite!!!! The principal mrs sliver is great The school deserves to of had a chance to go to 6 th grade hopefully Next year!!!
Wonderful school. Real treasure. Music, art, chess, gym, hebrew... caring teachers. The school makes children well rounded individual. I feel blessed. Lottery based acceptance. So, good luck!
this is school is the best ever it is a shame they did not get the 6,7,&8 grade in the charter i hope and prey they will next year
Love, love, love HLA! My daughter has been going to HLA since the first opened in 2009. The school has grown, and matured so nicely. The cohesiveness of the administration, and the staff provides such a strong environment for our kids. My daughter's teachers are our saviors. This also includes the school social worker, who is a gift from above. My daughter has excelled beyond my expectations. When one of her teachers runs downstairs when I pick her up just to tell me that she wanted to cry from happiness because of major strides my child made that day, it makes me want to cry. To see the teachers that invested in these kids is invaluable. The curriculum is so strong, and parental input is always welcome. HLA deserves recognition. What a wonderful community.
Both my kids attend HLA and absolutely love it. They have great teachers and so many activities that other schools do not offer. I am so happy that my children have this opportunity to attend a great school.
My son just started at HLA this year. He loves going to school and is learning amazing things. He gets to have gym daily, chess, music and art. He is rapidly learning to read and speak hebrew. His memory is challenged every week by memorizing a poem. He learns about nature and is surrounded by a multicultural group of wonderful kids. He even asks when he'll get to go to school in the school holidays. I love the uniforms as it has eliminated morning struggles as to which spider man tee shirt he wants to wear :). He's recently been on a field trip to the botanical gardens which he couldn't stop talking about. The teachers are wonderful and caring. There are two teachers per class unlike one per 25 kids at a regular ps. The school is like a private school for free. I feel great about my choice and will send my you get son there as well.
Great teachers and learning enviroment! My kids (K and 2nd grade) look forward to going there each morning. Happy with the cirruculum as well
I have two kids in HLA. Teachers are fantastic. A lot of enrichment activities. My kids love it and so do I. Highly recommend it.
My school offers a safe and nurturing environment for our kid. She loves chess, art, music and everything else HLA has to offer.
They have a great curriculum for the kids the teachers really care about teaching the kids and they check the homework every day my son love his school if you have a question they'll answer it they always return your calls and it's the only school that offers Hebrew language as a second language
I heard so many wonderful things about this school and their teachers. I can't wait for my son to be part of it.!
This was my son s first year at HLA. (We won the lottery) He entered in 3rd grade with no experience of the Hebrew language. Eight months later, he knows hebrew well enough to read, write, and speak. As for the general education, his teacher held high yet realistic expectations of her students. (Which I loved) There seems to be a better balance of diversity among staff and the student population, that is compared to the local public school my son had previously attended. My son s peers are equally motivated to learn and do well, something I believe is important in fostering a better learning climate. Overall, HLA is a better fit for my son and we are happy and proud to be here!
Our child loves HLA. She excels in math and sciences, loves the languages and has great friends. It's a private school for free. Highly recommended to all, good luck getting in though. There is a lottery and if you don't get in, there is a long waiting list.
My sons are in the third and fourth grades at HLA. I am extremely pleased with the the high scholastic standards as well as the creative and nurturing environment. The school leadership is an excellent team of professionals who strive to provide the best education for the children of HLA. The curriculum is challenging and multi-faceted and the students truly benefit. I feel very fortunate to have enrolled my children at this wonderful school.
Don't believe everything you read. The HLA has low academic expectations. Also, some of the kids don't belong in this school because they have behavior problems and don't want to study. You're better off sending your child to your local public school.
HLA is a wonderful school with great potential. It has the best teachers and leadership team. The teachers work very hard and strive to provide warm and caring environment for kids. Principal, Mrs.Silver, will always find time to listen to parent's concern and will find a way to address any issues or suggestions for improvement. Kids have exposure to variety of disciplines. In addition to math, english, hebrew, they also have art, gym, music, and chess classes. I feel lucky my kids are part of this great school.
I have a child in second grade and one in kindergarten. This is our first year at HLA, and we are thrilled so far. Both of my children have a lot of friends and happy to be there. Although there is HW everyday (like most schools), it isn't too much, and it seems to reinforce what is being studied in class. I was concerned the teachers would be inexperienced because this is a charter school, but am pleased with the level of control and education that seems to be happening in the schools. Truthfully, I am thrilled my kids are here, and feel lucky they got in.
HLA is a wonderful school. I have one child in 1st grade and another child in 3rd grade. They both love going to school, love learning, and love all the extracarricular activities they get in school. This school has a private school feel to it. The principal and teachers are always available for a chat. They address any concerns a parent may have and actually do something about it. HLA offers a safe and fun learning environment. Strongly recommend applying.
