Fostering Individual Academic Growth

Welcome to
Hatikvah International Academy Charter School

The Mission of the Hatikvah International Academy Charter School is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young citizens in order to promote a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

Hatikvah International Academy Charter School opened its doors in September of 2010 as a partial-immersion Modern Hebrew language public school incorporating the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate program approach. Our first year began with two full-day kindergarten classes, two first grade classes, and one second grade class serving a total of 108 students with two professional staff in each classroom. We now offer kindergarten through 8thgrade classes with a 575 student enrollment as of August 2021. Grades 6-8 are a fully authorized International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme.

Hatikvah is a tuition free public school and accepts students of all backgrounds.

Appreciating Diversity and Differences

HATIKVAH teachers implement a highly interactive instructional model that engages students in strategic, authentic disciplinary reading. In addition to engaging in before and after-reading strategies, teachers teach students to use during reading strategies through asking open-ended queries that require them to make literal sense of a segment of the text and then reflect on its meaning. Using this process iteratively, students develop the habit of continually monitoring their understanding of a text and pausing when gaps arise. HATIKVAH teachers facilitate questioning student discussions in whole groups, small groups, or individually, and can eventually release responsibility to independent study groups.

Our K-8 program is housed in a 55,000 square foot building that includes a Learning Commons, multi-purpose room, lunchroom, robotics room, science labs, art rooms, music room, and a classroom for drama.  Each classroom has a Smartboard.
