Hebrew Language curriculum was developed after a thorough process of
research and consultation with Hebrew Language educators around the
country. For our fourth and fifth grades we use the Chaverim B’Ivrit
series. Our Middle School uses the acclaimed NETA program, which
integrates the four essentials of second language acquisition at a more
advanced level. All students receive textbooks at their level. NETA has
Israeli culture and society into the curriculum so that students learn
the language in an engaging manner with a flavor of contemporary Israel.
The students are taught to apply their newly honed Hebrew language
skills to new conversational situations, thus ensuring that they truly
develop a working knowledge of Ivrit.
Our programming features Israel Studies throughout the school year, using educational methods that include Project David, documentary videos, and visits by Israeli Shlichim, as well as map study and biblical source reviews of our millennia-long connection to our homeland.
