Hillel: Named Nation's Only Jewish 2011 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence

The Samuel Scheck Hillel Community Day School │The Ben Lipson Hillel Community High School was the nation's only Jewish school to be recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as 2011 National Blue Ribbon School. The early childhood through 12th grade Jewish community day school in North Miami Beach will be honored by The Department at a conference and awards ceremony Nov. 14-15 in Washington, D.C.

“This is a wonderful acknowledgement of the comprehensive work that has been done over the past several years to ensure that Hillel offers its students an academically rigorous and innovative educational program,” said Rabbi Pinchos Hecht, new head of school. “We also view this recognition as a challenge to continue to raise the bar when it comes to such hallmarks of academic excellence, technology-based learning and creative learning and teaching models.”

The National Blue Ribbon School award honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools. Specific to institutions like Hillel, the program honors private schools whose students are at the highest performance level on nationally normed tests. Since 1982, more than 6,500 of America’s schools have received this coveted award, including the 255 public and 49 private schools that will receive the award this year.

“This award is the result of a multi-tiered commitment from the entire Hillel community, our teachers, students, administrative staff and families, to advance our mission and maintain the highest standards of academic excellence,” said Nick Hinrichsen, Hillel’s Head of Upper School. “We look forward to achieving even greater success in the future.”

Among the many innovative academic programs Hillel has introduced over the past few years is the International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School program. The school was the first Jewish day school in the state to offer the very rigorous program, which features curriculum that helps students develop the intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills to live, learn and work in a rapidly changing global economy.

“America’s long-term economic prosperity and civic engagement depends on our children receiving a world-class education,” Duncan said. “National Blue Ribbon Schools are committed to accelerating student achievement and preparing students for success in college and careers. Their success is an example for others to follow.”

A list of the 2011 National Blue Ribbon Schools is available at www.ed.gov/nationalblueribbonschools.

From early childhood through Grade 12, Hillel inspires students to become exemplary global citizens with strong Jewish identity through an innovative curriculum enriched by co-curricular experiences. All this is set within a nurturing, diverse, traditional Jewish community. Hillel is the one of the largest Jewish community day schools in the nation and Florida’s first Jewish International Baccalaureate® (IB) World School. For information, please visit ehillel.org.
