The Hannah Senesh Community Day School is an exceptional, co-educational K-8 community of learners, located in Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn. Founded in 1995, Hannah Senesh is a progressive Jewish school, serving a diverse community of children and their families from across the continuum of Jewish life. Senesh’s 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.
At Senesh, the core curriculum is built on a strong foundation of knowledge and skills acquisition, is based on a model of critical-thinking and open-inquiry, and is constantly enhanced by teacher-developed materials on current themes and topics. A dual curriculum of general and Judaic studies offers students a stimulating and challenging approach to learning. In a small class setting, students are encouraged to explore, investigate, and dissect all the world has to offer, and to do so with an open mind and discerning eye.
We are proud of the community we have created, and our graduates are successfully taking what they’ve learned at Hannah Senesh as they move on to some of the best high schools in New York City. Still, what we hear from our alumni—even years after they’ve graduated—says it all: “There’s no place like Hannah Senesh.”
