About Us


Hannah Senesh Community Day School is an exceptional, co-educational K-8 community of learners. Our unique program offers students and their families a strong tradition of academic excellence, along with a welcoming and inclusive environment of religious and cultural integration. “Community” is not just part of our name-it is truly central to our identity. Our students are drawn from a diversity of Jewish backgrounds, and our community includes many varied voices and perspectives. What unites us all is a commitment to raising lifelong learners, motivated by passion and creativity, dedicated to building connections, and inspired by kindness and respect. Hannah Senesh students embody the values of a rich Jewish tradition while embracing the promise and possibility of the modern world.

Our school community is greater than the sum of its parts. Students, teachers, parents, and administrators all come together to create a very special place where each contribution is valued, each relationship nurtured. Students have opportunities to participate in mixed-age activities, working together and learning from each other. Similarly, teachers have the chance to work-and play-with students from other classes, adding to the “one big family” atmosphere. Teachers, administrators, and parents consult with each other and collaborate often; we are all on the same team.
