Elementary school[edit]

The Hillel Yeshiva Elementary School is compiled of two divisions, one that ranges from first to fifth grade, known as the elementary school, and one that ranges from sixth to eighth grade known as the middle school. In the elementary school, children study in a single co-ed classroom throughout the entire day. The day is separated by lunchtime. In one half of the day, the children will learn Judaic studies, and the other would be secular studies. Starting in fifth grade, Judaic studies non co-ed. In sixth grade, the first four periods of the day are math, language arts, science, and social studies. This half of the day is the secular half. Next is lunch, and then the Judaic half arrives. The second four periods are Gemara, Hebrew language, Chumash, and either Halacha or Navi. Seventh grade and eighth grade are switched around; Judaic studies followed by secular studies.
