Hillel Academy sits on a beautiful, private, ten-acre campus and is home to approximately 200 students and over 40 faculty members. The school’s maintenance professional lives on campus, assuring 24-hour care of the facility. Click here for a Tampa tribune article about Hillel’s campus.
The Hillel campus is comprised of four separate buildings: three for the educational divisions, and one for the library. Each division building houses classrooms and areas for teachers to meet and hold conferences.
The Primary Building is also home to a fine arts room, nutrition center and administrative offices. The intermediate and middle school buildings are specially designed learning communities with integrated classrooms, science lab and art studio, as well as a Mercaz. A Mercaz is a center where students can do research and use laptops or iPads, or just curl up with a book from the book carousel. Teachers can use a Smartboard to teach lessons, hop on the internet to enhance the lesson, then save it to a computer.
The Hillel library houses over 10,000 volumes and a special collection Holocaust library. Additional computer stations and plenty of space allow students to work and study in relaxed and comfortable surroundings.
Hillel’s covered athletic pavilion provides a sheltered area for Physical Education classes for all levels. The large soccer/softball field gives ample space for outdoor activities. Six basketball stations and a large playground are enjoyed by the students during recess.
The Hillel campus is fully secured at all times, with an off-duty sheriff on campus whenever students are present.
