Hebrew in the Public Schools

Hebrew HS Classes

Students love the opportunity to learn Hebrew, all within a strong community environment. Each instructor brings a deep passion for Hebrew while teaching about the culture behind this modern language. Students learn to speak Hebrew as if they were walking along the streets of Tel Aviv in Israel!  Click here to see what our teens say about their Hebrew classes! You can also hear from teens in this video that explains why they are taking Hebrew in their public school!
