Welcome to Philadelphia Hebrew Public Charter School

Philadelphia Hebrew Public charter school’s mission is to inspire and prepare its diverse student body for advanced studies through a rigorous k-8 curriculum, instruction in Modern Hebrew, and the integration of global citizenship competencies.

Our goal is to provide an education that prepares your children for an ever-expanding world. As such, we not only provide high-quality instruction, but we aim to develop values such as empathy, social and civic responsibility, and global citizenship. Our robust program includes English, Math, Science, Social Studies (including Israel Studies), Modern Hebrew, Music, Art, Physical Education, and Social and Emotional Learning. We hold our students to a high level of academic expectation, rooted in the belief “Success for Every Student.” We differentiate our instruction and employ best practices in education to meet each child’s needs.  While the teachers, students, and staff work together each day, it is our families that round out our school community and continue to make Philadelphia Hebrew Public a special place for all. We encourage you to be active participants in the school’s life. Participating in our Neighborhood Networks, being a trip chaperone, or volunteering at some of our many events are just a few ways you can contribute. We are committed to engaging you and sharing the education experience with all of our families.

As part of our special global citizenship mission, we also help students become global citizens who learn important values. OLAM is the Hebrew word for “world,” and we use it as an acronym to describe these values, which include: 
● Outstanding Problem-Solvers
● Lifelong Learners 
● Aware Communicators
● Making a Difference 

We believe that 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!
