With a specially designed curriculum for teaching and reinforcing basic skills in math, English and Hebrew-language studies, the “soul” of the academic program is its dedication to personal attention. Each grade is limited to 20 students, who are divided into two groups of ten. Each group has its own qualified teacher in order to assure individual attention and maximum progress.
A total of 48 tutoring hours per month give teachers ample time to work with each child, tackle trouble spots, and encourage the child’s progress. Afikim’s coordinators maintain contact with both the child’s schoolteachers as well as the after-school teachers, to ensure combined efforts for the benefit of the youngsters. The result: our children come to class well prepared, with their homework completed, knowing the answers, and scoring well on tests.
The knowledge they gain, together with the resulting boost in their grades and confidence, are the keys to continued accomplishment. Feelings of pride and success replace the painful cycle of failure.
