Visionary Educator

Imagine a school with no homework for students K through 4, a school where children are happy to arrive early and stay late to work and play together, a school with resources and spaces that spark creativity, a school with a long list of highly qualified teachers waiting to apply, a school where educators from around the country have come to visit, to learn and to share ideas. This is Hillel Day School, with Steve Freedman at the helm - proof positive of what inspired leadership, philanthropic community support, committed Jewish families and naturally motivated students can achieve.
