Hillel Torah classrooms are rooted in a 21st century, student-centered learning approach. Guided by our nurturing and enthusiastic teachers, students are given the tools to think creatively and critically and encouraged to collaborate.
Thanks to the continued generosity of the Kupietzky family, the HT Educational Technology Grant provides our students with the latest tools for 21st century learning, including: a table cart for primary grades, a Chromebook cart for Middle School and iPads and projectors for Early Childhood. Whether writing, illustrating and publishing their own stories in Hebrew or English on a tablet or engaging in an online class blog, educational technology integration offers our students opportunities for higher levels of creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and application of their learning.
Our new STEM initiative inspires students to think, engage, explore and experiment through the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. As active players in the learning process, students confront real-life problems and integrate knowledge from multiple disciplines as they become builders, designers and engineers.
Students are also deepening their math thinking and MAP scores soared this past year with the new Investigations in Number, Data and Space math curriculum for grades K-5. The new curriculum, aligned with the more rigorous common core learning standards, is designed to build students’ conceptual understanding of numbers and mathematical thinking.
