Middle School Grades 6-8
At Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy, Middle School teachers, students, and families work together to create an atmosphere that is developmentally appropriate and promotes healthy academic, social, and emotional growth. In our unique Middle School program, students are taught to be academically responsible and self-reliant within a nurturing environment. Students are supported in their individual self-discovery and development of responsibilities to the greater community (tzedakah, mitzvot, tikkun olam) during this time in their lives.
Our goal is empowering our students to thrive academically and achieve their potential as they prepare for the rigors of Upper School and beyond.
