Hochberg Preparatory School serves infants through grade 8 in a dynamic, nurturing environment. This institution integrates Jewish values and ethics into a cutting edge Secular curriculum. Children, beginning at Jr. Kindergarten (age 4), learn not only Hebrew and Judaics, but also choose either Spanish or Mandarin-Chinese as an additional language. They participate in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program that is second to none. Every child graduates with a strong background not only in Language Arts, Social Studies and Foreign Language, but possesses the skills necessary to enroll in honors’ classes in many areas. A typical Hochberg Preparatory student leaves eighth grade with the ability to receive high school credit for mathematics, foreign language and science, to name a few. They also generally become class leaders and all excel academically.
In addition to the core subject areas, children participate in music, art and physical education. After school, students attend sports, Musical Theatre and a variety of enrichment classes. Moreover, the integration of the “Leader in Me” program during the school day enables every child to develop leadership skills and to learn how to effectively interact with others. Concurrently, Hochberg Preparatory School provides a strong professional development program for staff. Because of the everchanging needs of students, the school leaders understand the importance of maintaining ongoing training for the entire staff.
Admission to the school is achieved in one of two ways. For the Early Childhood Department, parents can schedule a tour of the facility with the Director, Anne Mandelbaum at 305-933-6946. The Day School (grades K-8) process requires a tour, testing by the school psychologist, data from other schools attended and a visit by the student, to an age appropriate classroom.
