Our Mission

The Mission of the Hatikvah International Academy Charter School is to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young citizens in order to promote a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect. Anchored by the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, the school promotes tolerance, understanding and appreciation for people from different backgrounds. Through the in-depth study of Modern Hebrew delivered in part using the model of the International Baccalaureate curriculum (IB), inquiry based instruction, the school continually develops and implements an innovative child-centered curriculum which is monitored with appropriate authentic and rigorous assessments to help our students become good citizens of our local community, country and world. Children from all cultures, religions and ethnicities will be able to exist within one community while maintaining individual identities and pride.
