The Hillel Day School math program develops, creative, life-long, confident and independent learners whose critical thinking foundation and communication skills prepare them to analyze and solve problems in real-world experiences. The HDS staff will work collaboratively with parents and students to differentiate instruction while providing a challenging, integrated curriculum that supports the core Jewish values and maintains high standards so each student reaches his/her full potential.
Hillel's math program is designed to address the wide range of student needs in our school community. Students who are identified as having exceptional math aptitude have the opportunity to participate in the Math Trailblazers program. With an average class size of five students, the program is designed to meet the needs of the highly capable learner by not only providing instruction at an appropriate pace but also enriching and deepening understanding beyond the age/grade level expectations. Graduates of the Math Trailblazers program complete their high school geometry course before leaving Hillel at the end of eighth grade. Students also have the benefit of a support staff that works with parents and teachers to develop personal goals to allow all students to grow and succeed in a rigorous and challenging curriculum.
