Hillel’s 6-8 grade programs expose students to seven core subjects. Language arts, social studies, science, math, Hebrew and Judaics are studied daily. Three days a week the Middle School students also engage in learning a third language as they study Spanish. Many Hillel graduates are able to place out of Spanish I when entering High School.
Our goal in Middle School is to provide children with an environment that allows them to develop both cognitively and socially during these important early teenage years. Focus is placed on developing the ability to think for one’s self, to infer, to apply previously learned knowledge, and to be confident in one’s abilities.
All of Hillel’s teachers work together to create a rich curriculum that works towards these goals. Computer education, art and physical education are an important part of the Middle School program, and students are encouraged to be active members of our sports teams. As in the Intermediate program, lessons are generally taught above grade level and Hillel graduates are admitted to the finest High School programs in the Tampa Bay area.
