Student Services

At TanenbaumCHAT, your child is not just another student in a sea of students, nor can they be defined solely by a mark on a report card. The Student Services team at TanenbaumCHAT recognizes that each child has unique social, emotional and academic needs that must be met in order to facilitate their success in high school and beyond. What works for one child may not necessarily work for yours. As Director of Student Services, it is my role to ensure that no student “falls through the cracks,” by coordinating the efforts of the Deans’ Office, the Guidance Department, and the Centre for Differentiated Learning (CDL).

Through this multi-disciplinary approach to student growth, we are able to address the needs of the whole student and allocate those resources that best suit the individual needs of your child.

Centre for Differentiated Learning

The Centre for Differentiated Learning (CDL) operates on behalf of students who have exceptional learning needs, which are typically identified by a psycho-educational assessment. Students will receive an optimal learning experience while being supported through a variety of service models. The CDL faculty becomes the students’ advocates. As advocates, we create a Student Learning Profile (SLP) for each student based on assessments, reports and interviews. Throughout the year we ensure that teachers are aware of the unique learning profile of each student through collaborative communication. We confer with parents and teachers on a regular basis regarding appropriate strategies and accommodations to meet our students’ needs, and we strive to support each student's efforts to ensure their ongoing success.

Guidance

A fully-staffed, professional team of guidance counselors advise students on course selection and personal educational planning, career counseling, university and college entrance, and study programs in Israel. Personal counseling is also offered to students who wish to discuss academic, social or personal issues and is strictly confidential. Regular student/counselor meetings help to build solid relationships, enable counselors to get to know their students very well throughout their years at TanenbaumCHAT and provide students with a solid support system.

Deans

High school is all about transitioning from childhood to young-adulthood and the Dean’s office plays an integral role in helping support and guide students along this special journey. The Deans' Office is central to the day-to-day running of the school and, most importantly, is an office that is geared 100% to the success and well-being of every student and staff member at TanenbaumCHAT. Our aim is to support student success, learning, and teaching. There are two Deans at TanenbaumCHAT; Mrs. Weinstock and Mr. Mittelman. The underlying philosophy in the Deans' Office is one that views parents and guardians as active partners in student success and, therefore, embraces timely two-way communication with the home.
