About the Organization:

Hebrew Public Charter Schools for Global Citizens.

Our mission is to lead a national movement of exceptional, diverse public charter schools that teach Modern Hebrew to children of all backgrounds and prepare them to be successful global citizens. Our schools are models of racial and economic integration, academic excellence, and world language learning. Hebrew Public manages schools in New York City and Philadelphia, and also supports an affiliate network of schools in California, Washington DC, New Jersey, and Minnesota.

Our focus on global citizenship is embodied by three core elements:

  • The building of relationships across difference, embodied by our focus on racial, cultural, and economic diversity
  • The study of Modern Hebrew and of Israel as a window into other languages, cultures and experiences
  • Our unique set of global citizenship values that infuse all that we do, described through the acronym OLAM (the Hebrew word for “world”). These values include Outstanding Problem Solving, Lifelong Learning, Aware Communication and Making a Difference.

Our schools help students grow to become empathetic, ethical, intellectually curious young adults committed to solving the world’s problems. Other key program elements in Hebrew Public’s New York City schools include the Responsive Classroom model, Expeditionary Learning, Close Reading, Wilson Reading System, Eureka, Number Stories, Fundations and Geodes.

The network’s first school in Staten Island, Staten Island Hebrew Public, opened in the fall of 2022, serving 120 students in kindergarten and 1st grade. The school will add a grade level each year until it ultimately serves grades K to 8 in the 2029-30 school year.
