Hebrew Public’s work is rooted in the OLAM core values. OLAM is the Hebrew word for “world”, and is used as an acronym to describe these values, which include:
Outstanding Problem-Solvers Lifelong Learners Aware Communicators Making a Difference
Children who develop these values will be able to succeed in high school, college, the workplace, and their communities, while making the world a better place!
Outstanding Problem Solvers
We are optimistic and solutions-oriented. We believe that constructive disagreement and discourse are fundamental to the teaching and learning process. We use critical thinking and evidence to solve problems.
We are raising students to fall in love with learning, so that they continue their learning journey for a lifetime. As adults, we welcome and embrace feedback, and we know that the key to student improvement is our own growth and development.
We know that listening deeply, taking others’ perspectives and learning about multiple languages and cultures are all fundamental characteristics of global citizens. We communicate clearly and effectively with different audiences.
Making a Difference
We use our problem solving, learning and communication skills to make big and small differences in the world. From the kindergarten student helping a friend tie her shoelaces, to the teams of adults committed to providing outstanding educational opportunities for our students, each of us plays a role in positively shaping the world we live in.
