Head of School, Hebrew Public: Charter Schools for Global Citizens

New York, United States · Administration/Leadership



Hebrew Public is a national network of public charter schools with a commitment to racially and economically diverse schools (we are a member of the Diverse Charter School Coalition). Our schools maintain a focus on global citizenship which leads to our students becoming empathetic, ethical, intellectually curious young adults committed to solving the world’s problems. Hebrew Public schools are dual language schools that offer partial immersion programs in Modern Hebrew with an accompanying focus on the study of Israel.

Hebrew Public’s network currently contains thirteen schools (eight elementary and five middle schools) in four states and the District of Columbia, serving more than 3,100 students. In NYC, we serve as the Charter Management Organization for schools in Brooklyn and Harlem. Hebrew Public was just granted a charter for expansion to Staten Island and is in the process of expanding to a new school in Philadelphia which will open in 2019-2020. It is an exciting time to join our growing network.
