As we are the “people of the book,” our Middle School provides a totally departmentalized program with strong emphasis on literature and written and oral expression. To prepare them for high school, our Middle School students embark on a rigorous academic journey. With top-notch language arts, science and math teachers, many of our students have become participants and winners in statewide competitions in writing, math and science. Our accelerated mathematics program offers pupils the opportunity for advanced placement in algebra upon graduation. The school’s well-equipped science lab allows our students to probe into the microscope or beyond the solar system. World civilization, both ancient and modern, and American history are examined in social studies. Our "wireless laptop lab" keeps our middle school students up to speed as they travel from class to class with their laptop computers.
Our Judaic studies program intensifies the development of Hebrew language skills and the study of Bible, Prophets, Mishna and Talmud, and Jewish history and religion. Individualized programs are available for those students entering late in their school careers. We continue to foster our students' strong bond to Israel, which was instilled in their younger years at HAMC.
Our much-acclaimed choir performs at school events and throughout the community and students have use of our electronic keyboard lab. A variety of sports teams compete against local private and public schools. Our Tikun Olam Club participates in a series of projects each year that seeks to enrich the lives of all members of our community.
Sixth Grade: One of the highlights of the sixth grade experience at HAMC is the annual trip to "Camp Teva." This trip is an adventure in environmental studies where the Jewish concepts of Bal Tashchit (Biblical ban on wasteful behavior) and Tikkun Olam (healing the earth) are explored. Students also learn cooperation amongst themselves and other sixth graders as they take on active roles in all aspects of community living.
Seventh Grade: Our seventh graders travel each year to Washington, DC, to see firsthand the historical sites that they have learned about in their social studies classes. With trained guides, they explore America's foundations and experience history in reality.
Eighth Grade: Our eighth graders culminate their experience at Hebrew Academy with a two-week trip to Israel each spring. Once again, the historical background of our people is experienced firsthand, and their classroom learning takes on new and realistic meanings for them.
