ABOUT HILLEL COMMUNITY DAY SCHOOL
Head of School
It has been a wonderful 2018-19 school year. We can't wait to tell you a bit more about the academic programming and revisioned classroom spaces that we have added to our school this year.
Faculty & Staff
The Faculty & Staff at Hillel Community Day School are comprised of a wide-range of Judaic teachers, General Studies teachers and other professionals. They each bring a vast amount of knowledge in their speciality areas to the school.
At Hillel Community Day School, academic excellence, individual achievement and the warmth of a community converge to create a dynamic learning experience for your child.
Hillel is an egalitarian, private and pluralistic Jewish day school, offering a full day program, 8:00am-3:30pm, for all students from Kindergarten through Eighth grade. After school care is also offered Monday-Thursday until 6:00pm and Friday as late as candlelighting times permit.
Throughout the day, General Studies, Judaic Studies and Enrichment Classes are integrated. Students thrive with our dual curriculum and we provide a comfortable, exciting and stimulating learning atmosphere.
Our nine acre campus is located in the suburb of Brighton, just outside Rochester, NY. Brighton offers kosher food options, family activities and a spectrum of synagogues to choose from, ranging from Orthodox to Conservative and Reform. Brighton is recognized as one of America’s most striking residential towns and is home to notable leaders in business, industry, education, government and the arts.
Hillel's nine acre campus features a newly renovated 1,000+ SF Wolk Kindergarten Wing, a spacious gymnasium/auditorium , a newly planted learning garden, a state-of-the-art STEAM lab, a stimulating art studio and a modern science & ecology lab. The library and media center contains a Triumph Interactive Board, a full scall broadcast studio, as well as Judaic and general interest volumes.
We strive to provide all students with the best possible education. Our favorable 6:1 average student-to-teacher ratio enables teachers to know all their students and provide differentiated instruction for each child. An Instructional Leadership Team tailors enrichment and remediation programs to meet the needs of each and every child in our school.
