Our Educational Approach

Student Centered

Student Centered

Our rigorous curriculum is designed to engage the whole child by promoting collaboration, exploration, critical thinking, creativity, and real world application. Our student-centered approach provides innovative, challenging, stimulating, and diverse learning opportunities addressing the unique educational and social emotional needs of each student in a warm and nurturing environment.

Classroom Culture

Social-Emotional Learning

Children can only learn and grow when they feel a sense of belonging as part of a secure community.  Inspired by the Responsive Classroom philosophy, our dynamic and nurturing teachers create warm and respectful learning communities in their classrooms, responsive to each child’s physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs.  In addition, we incorporate mindfulness practices using the Calm Classroom curriculum to help students develop the skills needed to manage stress and develop self awareness, mental focus and inner calm. These programs have empowered our students to feel confident and focused in and out of the classroom.

Israel Education

The love and pride Hillel Torah shares for Israel is palpable throughout our building every day. Our leading Judaic Studies program is anchored in our nationally recognized Ivrit b’Ivrit (Hebrew language immersion) program taught by our staff of Israeli morim shlichim and b’not sherut who bring an authentic taste of Torat Yisrael, Hebrew language and culture to our students and families We live, love and learn about Israel every day.


Chesed & Community Service

We have a robust service learning program which provides many opportunities for our students to participate in chesed and community service projects.  Whether packaging and delivering food to those in need, visiting the elderly, working with children with special needs or raising money for charities that they’ve vetted and found worthy, students throughout all grades are surrounded by the values of caring for others on a daily basis.
