The Cherry Hill School Mission is to empower students to be active constructors of their own
knowledge by using best practices from around the world.
We believe that when respectful attention is given to naturally inquisitive minds and unique
styles of learning, students are empowered to ask questions, find answers, and make thoughtful decisions.The learning process is fostered by strategies of research, comparison of ideas and co-participation; it makes use of creativity, uncertainty, intuition, and curiosity generated in play and in the aesthetic emotional and spiritual dimensions.
The constructivist approach nurtures motivation and the pleasure of learning. The learner of knowledge is
actively engaged with and in control of the learning process through Project-Based Instruction. We place a high value on developing self-awareness and consideration of others’ feelings and points of view. Using a Jewish lens to teach about kindness, responsibility, community, and respect our school culture fosters empathy and understanding. Our students develop a global understanding of the world in which we live and that they can make a difference.
A life-long love of learning and community begins here.
