My son has been at Sela since September and his Hebrew already far surpasses what I learned in eight years of Hebrew school. Not only does he get to exercise that part of his brain and have a whole new concept for language, but through Hebrew he'll have access to his Jewish heritage in a way I wish I'd had. Parents who want to raise Jewish kids should consider Sela. For Jews who can't swing JPDS or DCJCC tuition or whose kids are too old to attend, Sela is a great alternative. Something else I love about Sela is that it's completely secular, which makes my work as a secular Jewish humanist parent much easier. The staff is fantastic--enthusiastic, attentive and kind. Classes are small and the administration is as involved in my child's success as his teachers are.

SELA has been an amazing start to my sons education, he is only in Pre K. From the star he jumped right in and the teachers and administrators were right there with him! He fully immersed himself in learning Hebrew, telling me what common household items were called in Hebrew and even writing his name in English and Hebrew for family and myself. I love how the staff is hands on and willing to help the child. It is a family oriented school and that means a lot to me as a mom. My son will be continuing his education at SELA!

My daughter has been in the Sela language-immersion program for only two months, and she is already able to have extensive conversations in a foreign language. Most importantly, she begs to go to school every day! This proof speaks to the high-quality of Sela's teachers, who instill a true love for learning through games and songs, all while imparting the education and life skills that compete with the best private schools in the nation.

Im so Grateful that I found Sela!!! Sela is a wonderful school, my son is excelling academically, he is almost fully immersed in Hebrew day to day (Prek4) but I also see improvements in his English communication. As another parent pointed out, its amazing how much Hebrew he knows after just a couple of months, he comes home and teaches me! Sela has fantastic Administration and Teachers, they are extremely communicative and instill a love of learning in the children daily. The children at Sela will be amongst the Top in the city academically due to their great program and dedicated staff. Sela is a Brand New school with a foundation modeled after Yu Ying, each year a grade level is added as students progress. I fully expect Sela to be a school with a mile long waitlist after a few years but right now its one of DC's best kept secrets, a free public charter with a private school quality education! Get your kids in Sela while you still can! :)
