SIHA is a private school that features a meaningful Judaic component which is centered on Jewish Identity, Culture, Values, and love for the State of Israel. While guiding our students on a path to discovery of their heritage, much emphasis is placed on their character development and appreciation for personal growth. We believe that the interests of SIHA as a Judaic and educational institution are served best by a student body drawn from all parts of the Jewish community and from all walks of life. To this end, we attempt to make available to all interested families the opportunity for the study of Judaism and Jewish culture and traditions.
As a private school, in what way is SIHA held accountable for the quality of its education?
We follow well known programs that are already established with recognized validity within the curriculum and it's implementation such as, Singapore Math. Our students take the latest standardized tests such as the Stanford Achievement Test and the State Common Core Test for English Language Arts and Mathematics which ensures educational accountability on our part.
Currently at SIHA, tuition and fees provide only about 60% of our annual budget. Historically, Jewish education has been regarded as a communal responsibility and not just a parental obligation. Therefore, we ask you, a member of our community, for your support and are grateful for your contribution.
