HANC High School welcomed hundreds of visitors at the annual open house this past Sunday. Eighth-grade parents and students attending HANC’s middle school were joined by parents and students from a variety of schools to learn about the excellence and vibrancy that define this outstanding yeshiva. Guests were treated to a superb display of the academic and extracurricular programs being offered at the high school, having an opportunity to meet and hear from the esteemed faculty members and students. Guests also heard from two student speakers: junior Jacob Berman described his experience at HANC High School, as well as the rigorous curriculum, and transfer student Elizabeth Frenkel described the warmth of her new school and shared the new opportunities she has found at HANC.
Many parents commented on how incredible it was to be able to interact with high school students and parents throughout the morning. One parent remarked, “What an impressive group of students! It’s refreshing to attend an open house which allows us to ask questions and interact with students and parents, rather than a packaged show.” Another parent remarked via e-mail, “The student representation was excellent. The ambassadors were pleasant, friendly, and poised.”
Parents and students attended mini-lessons featuring academic programs; participated in panels showcasing high school students, alumni, and parents; and enjoyed an interactive and eye-catching activities fair titled “The HANC Palette” presented by students. “I never realized there are so many opportunities available to choose from in high school,” said one eighth-grader.
High-school applications are due November 25. For application and information, please contact the registrar, Mrs. Jackie Raofim, at 516-538-8161, ext. 14. v
