Welcome to Staten Island Hebrew Public Charter School

Staten Island Hebrew Public is an exceptional, diverse public charter school that teaches Modern Hebrew to children of all backgrounds and prepares them to be successful global citizens.

Opened in 2022, Staten Island Hebrew Public is the network’s newest school. Staten Island Hebrew Public has a diverse student population that uniquely reflects the multicultural and vibrant dynamics of the neighborhood. It is housed in a state-of-the-art environmentally friendly school building with spacious, well-lit classrooms, a full-sized cafeteria, music rooms,  and rooftop playground space. The school currently serves nearly 100 students in k and first grade and will grow to be a k-5 school. 

“Global citizenship” education is a big part of the school’s focus. It includes the development of student skills in communication (including learning a foreign language), collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. It also includes an emphasis on empathy and emotional intelligence.

We are strong believers in personalized learning – ensuring that each and every child has the opportunity to grow academically and socially in ways that are tailored to their needs and learning styles. Our personalized approach to learning is enhanced by our small student-to-teacher ratios – transforming the classroom experience into one of genuine community which in turn promotes positive emotional development in each child.
