Associated Hebrew Schools (AHS) is a community day school rooted in traditional Jewish values.
We are committed to:
Educational excellence and innovation in both general and Judaic studies
Nurturing student growth with rich, meaningful learning experiences
Instilling a love of Torah, Israel, and the Hebrew language in our students
AHS welcomes families from across the Jewish community and is proud to have a student body of diverse learners who represent a wide range of cultures, socio-economic backgrounds, and Jewish beliefs.
After an extremely successful inaugural year, AHS is pleased to continue Maalot at Danilack Middle School, a Jewish Foundations Stream designed for students with little to no prior knowledge of Hebrew or Judaic studies.
Have you dreamed of enrolling your children in a Jewish day school but been concerned that they lack the necessary prerequisite knowledge to thrive there? Maalot is crafted to help your child gain the fundamental knowledge in Hebrew, Torah, prayer, and Jewish history to integrate confidently into the day-school classroom.
Please speak to us about this innovative new stream. Our leadership and teachers are dedicated to the success of your family’s transition to AHS, a place for every Jewish child.
Funding for Maalot is available through the Generations Trust Scholarship and the Jewish Community Affordability Platform (JCAP) from the UJA Federation.
