School Notes

  • Hebrew High School of New England (HHNE) is a dedicated to the transmission of traditional Jewish values and to providing an outstanding secular education. At HHNE, we care for every child's academic, personal, and religious growth. Our students come from across the denominational spectrum and with a wide range of backgrounds, and they benefit from a dual curriculum--college preparatory courses and Judaic studies--in an intellectually stimulating environment that encourages students to enter adulthood as independent thinkers and knowledgeable, proud Jews. The school recently moved onto its newly-constructed $6.8 million campus in West Hartford. The campus features state-of-the-art classroom technology, modern science labs, an art and music building, and athletic facilities. HHNE is a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federations of Greater Hartford and Greater Springfield and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation and is associated with the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven.
