Hebrew Language Academy is a school that creates an environment full of opportunities for its students. My daughter passed  NYS Gifted and Talented test at 99th percentile. I went to tour several schools in district 22 that offered G&T classes. After detailed comparisons, I assigned my daughter to HLA. Being a charter school, they have to outperform the rest of the schools in the district. Their math and reading classes are differentiated in order to push better performing kids further and to pay all the necessary attention to the rest of the kids. They offer several additional educational programs, such as RazKids and Mathletics to challenge students even more. Unlike many other schools that struggle with funding and get their classes cut to a minimum, HLA offers physical education classes four times a week. All students get art, music, and even chess! On top of everything else, the kids are learning a second language from kindergarten. They do not just learn it by the textbooks, but they get to speak it, see it, sing it throughout the day, and so by the end of the first year, my daughter understood a friend who spoke Hebrew to her and replied appropriately. I believe the students get great academic foundation and get to develop as more versatile individuals.
I also appreciate the approachability of the school personnel, the teachers, the curriculum director, the principal. Ms. Laura Silver, the principal takes parental concerns seriously, and follows up on them.
I like that HLA has all these advantages, and I love that my 7-years old daughter is looking forward to school every day. She loves it, she feels loved in it, and I feel lucky that she goes there.
