Support Services

The support of diverse academic needs and learning styles is a critical part of our educational program. Support staff identify and work with children who are in need of additional support or in need of enrichment.

EHA’s Administrators and Faculty form relationships with students beginning with a student’s initial interview and continuing through graduation. This relationship is fostered during the years of a student’s education at Esformes Hebrew Academy.

We accommodate children with different academic abilities through both modifications in the classroom and also through “pull-out” support. Children may receive support in the classroom from an assistant teacher or support teacher. Children may also receive support outside the classroom in both General and Judaic Studies.

Support staff work collaboratively with classroom teachers to design, implement, and evaluate modifications in instruction and assessment. Staff members are also available to assist parents and families. Our aim is to help each student work independently in the classroom and to enhance self-esteem by providing varied opportunities for success.

Support in the form of accommodations is quite common. Many children require accommodations to succeed in the classroom. For a child with attention difficulties, for example, these might include: frequent breaks, a behavior modification checklist, or permission to use a “fidget.” 

We modify assignments as needed.
