CMCH is a Chabad Community school where every Jewish child is welcome.

We are a Jewish day school with a high quality learning environment guided by Torah directives and best practices emerging from recent research on how a person learns best.  

CMCH's educational philosophy and culture are guided by these core beliefs: 

 

 

 

CORE BELIEF 1 :

חלק אלוקה ממעל ממש
Every person's essence is a piece of Hashem.
#precious

Therefore we:

  • demonstrate care and understanding of each learner

  • develop positive relationships with and between all involved in the learners’ learning. 

  • provide a consistently safe, positive and secure environment

  • harness the internal motivation that we believe all people have to learn

CORE BELIEF 2:

כל ישראל ערבים זה לזה
We are responsible to and for each other.
#caring

Therefore we:

  • believe that people learn best when they work with each other rather than against each other

  • build a sense of community and appropriate learning partnerships.

  • plan for purposeful, collaborative teacher/ teacher, teacher / learner and learner/learner interaction.

  • use questions and dialogue  as a necessary component in education and to deepen understanding of each other

CORE BELIEF 3:
חנוך לנער על פי דרכו
Educate each child in a personalized manner
#independent

Therefore we: 

  • believe that people learn best when the learning interests them and  they can see connections between the subject matter and situations beyond the classroom

  • recognize and respond to individual differences in learning styles

  • include and maximize the participation of learners of different abilities

  • personalize instruction through a range of teaching strategies

  • engage learners in multi-sensory experiences.

  • are patient with the time it takes to build meaning and understanding

CORE BELIEF 4:
יגעתי ומצאתי תאמין
Try hard and you will succeed
 #confident

 

Therefore we:

  • maintain appropriate expectations that challenge all learners

  • regard all interactions as teaching / learning opportunities

  • communicate confidence in the learners’ abilities and nurture their confidence in themselves

  • involve learners in goal setting

  • encourage appropriate risk-taking, so learners can learn and grow from their mistakes 

  • encourage perseverance

 

 

CORE BELIEF 5:
דרך ארץ קדמה לתורה
Being a mentch always comes first!
#respect

 

Therefore we:

  • believe that respect for each other - teachers, elders, peers -  and self, is a prerequisite for learning.

  • model respect and  kindness

  • communicate positive expectations 

  • consider how our own behavior influences the environment

  • maintain classrooms that are structured and organized and clearly teach routines and expectations

CORE BELIEF 6:
נתאווה הקב”ה להיות לו ית’ דירה בתחתונים
Hashem wants us to make this world a holier place.
#purpose


Therefore we:

  • guide learners to discover their unique mission to bring holiness into the world

  • together with families, guide learners to develop their Jewish identity and live that identity on a daily basis

  • empower learners to find their place as contributing members of the community
