Take a walk down the hallways on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings…you’ll see children working interactively on smartboards or skyping with an 11 year-old “mensch” from Ottawa…you’ll smell holiday treats, such as apples and honey or latkes…You’ll notice amazing art projects, musical enthusiasm, dramatic interpretations…and you’ll feel the laughter, ruach, and warmth of a close-knit family!
Now with the entire virtual world at their fingertips via laptops and Smartboards in every classroom, students are “visiting” museums around the world, important areas of Israel (live Kotel, holiday observations in Jerusalem, etc) , and Jewish heroes – all in the comfort and confines of our classrooms! Our self-paced Hebrew curriculum ensures that every student, regardless of background and ability, will be challenged. Teachers are inspired by new programs and perspectives. Religious School has become fun for all!
