All of the courses studied at Kol Hadassa are categorized into six broad subjects: English, Jewish Studies, PDHPE, Math, Science and Social Studies. Each of these subjects offers the opportunity to work in small classes or independently.
Girls work on reading, vocabulary, grammar, punctuation, creative writing and formal essay work in this time. There are always multiple teachers guiding them and making sure that they are staying on track to complete their goals for the year.

Students are divided into math-study groups depending on their level. Each group meets once a week formally with a teacher and is given assignments to carry out during the other math sessions. Math concepts are taught and reinforced using multiple learning tools such as manipulatives, graphics and real life examples.
The science syllabus includes biology, earth science and physical science (which encompasses both physics and chemistry). These courses are taught in small classes that give the teacher the ability to make sure that each student understands every concept. Girls also carry out guided experiments and are taught how to write a lab report. Our wonderful teachers transmit a love for science that truly inspires their students!
History, geography and civics all fall under Social Studies. The girls are given the opportunity to explore and learn about the world they live in. Students are encouraged to use the PennFoster material as a springboard for personal research assignments.
