HANC High School welcomed eighth-grade students and their parents to its annual open house on Sunday, November 16. The program began with opening remarks from HANC’s menahel, Rabbi Shlomo Adelman, who discussed the excellence and vibrancy that define this outstanding yeshiva. The standing-room-only crowd then heard from Michelle Hoch, who described her high-school experience—the rigorous curriculum, the warmth, and the various opportunities afforded to the students at HANC. The opening session concluded with a creative and well-received student-produced video called “HANC Life.”
Parents and students proceeded to classrooms where they attended mini-lessons given by our esteemed faculty members in both limudeikodesh and general studies. The program continued with a panel presentation featuring our students, parents, and alumni, guidance and academic showcases, and an interactive and eye-catching activities fair titled “The HANC Palette.” Additionally, students had an opportunity to attend an Engineering and Art Expo where they observed our 3-D printer in action, student-produced projects, and an interactive computer engineering program. One visiting student then commented, “I never realized there are so many opportunities available to choose from in high school.” Simultaneously, parents attended a workshop on HANC’s integration of technology in the classroom.
At the conclusion of the open house, prospective students and parents expressed how incredible it was to be able to interact with HANC students, parents, and faculty throughout the morning. One parent remarked, “What an impressive group of students! The ambassadors were pleasant, friendly, and poised. It was refreshing to attend an open house like this. It really gave us a genuine feel for the school.”
