This school has such a caring, thoughtful, creative staff! They create an integrated curriculum--reading, math, science and social studies are related, and are enhanced with music and art, so students latch onto big ideas and are eager to learn and practice new skills. The Hebrew language study is also so participatory. Students are grouped flexibly, there is lots of one-on-one time, and expert help for those who need it. My student made such fast progress, and loved it. Plus, he feels like he's friends with everyone in the school.
There is expert tutoring for several students with specific challenges. Student groupings are flexible and based on students' immediate needs. Teachers frequently work with students individually. Also, when the students work in larger groups, their differences are treated with respect.
They teach the separate subjects well, and they plan a curriculum in which the subjects are interrelated. Students use their reading, writing and arithmetic skills as they study social studies and science, and they are encouraged to further explore topics they are interested in.
The kids show compassion and great social skills and love learning! The come home reading and doing math at the dinner table and are so excited and engaged. Plus this is a bi-lingual school! I am so impressed!
