School Notes

  • Our enriching program encompasses general studies, Hebrew, Jewish studies, art, music, and physical education, balancing academic achievement with students` social, emotional, and physical well-being. Our curriculum teaches students important 21st century learning skills, such as problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creative use of technology providing a dynamic environment that encourages independent thinking. At Hausner, we support the idea that true learning comes from experience. As a result, our project-based learning approach helps students develop practical life skills through investigation, complex research, and decision making. These skills lead to deeper learning, greater retention, and increased student engagement. We integrate technology into our core curriculum in general studies (including math, science, social studies, and English), as well as Jewish studies and various levels of Hebrew to enhance project-based learning. Our STEM curriculum a hallmark of our education process is an interdisciplinary and applied-teaching approach that integrates hands-on experience in science, technology, engineering, and math for real-world, problem-based learning.
