The Talmud teaches us that “each child brings his or her own blessing into the world.”
At the heart of the Bi-Cultural philosophy is our commitment to educating the “whole child” and nurturing the development of the whole person.
Our collaborative classroom model fosters a respectful atmosphere enabling students to explore new ideas and become confident risk-takers. Whether athletic or artistic, musical or social, intellectual or any combination of the above, our lower school staff is deeply committed to finding the “just-right” way to capture a child’s imagination and to cultivate each child’s special gifts.
At Bi-Cultural, the curriculum in every subject is carefully crafted and systematically reviewed to incorporate progressive teaching methods and new ideas. Cross-curricular units of study and coordination among academic areas enable enriched learning opportunities and deeper learning experiences. In a Bi-Cultural classroom, every child’s progress is closely monitored to ensure continued growth and improvement and our small classes facilitate a highly individualized and differentiated learning environment enabling young minds to stretch, grow and flourish.
Our comprehensive and systematic approach encourages students to work through a process of inquiry, investigation and integration. Our classrooms are rich in curricular content that is meaningful for students because they are rooted in overarching essential questions, coupled with differentiated learning environments where a wealth of specific and targeted instructional approaches are offered to meet a variety of student needs across the academic spectrum. A well-rounded and integrated curriculum motivates Bi-Cultural students and encourages them to become stakeholders in their education.
Embedded in the instructional fabric of Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy is a staff dedicated to nourishing, molding and shaping the character of our students. Modeling kindness, enthusiasm and optimism serves as a vehicle for youngsters to grasp challenging concepts and navigate a multitude of learning experiences.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our outstanding staff and their passionate abilities to ignite our children and inspire them to soar to new heights. It is within this firm foundation that our students are able to become successes in our classrooms, our communities and imprint a positive impact on our world.
