Educational Support Services


Farber Hebrew Day School provides a robust and rigorous Modern Orthodox Jewish education from early childhood through 12th grade.  As a mission-driven institution, we believe that as many children as possible in the metro Detroit Jewish community should have the opportunity to participate in the education that Farber provides. As you are a crucial partner in helping your child succeed, we wish to more fully explain what we offer through our Educational Support Services (ESS). 

Farber aims to meet the needs of a wide variety of learners within our general educational setting. We are proud to have a strong Educational Support Services (ESS) team to help your children better access their learning potential and find success in our dual curriculum program. The ESS department is designed for students with mild to moderate learning differences who are motivated to learn, succeed in class, and attend a Modern Orthodox day school. The ESS department works closely with the classroom teachers, administration and the social workers in order to provide appropriate support and create learning environments that meet the needs of each student.

Social Work Services

Farber Hebrew Day School has two full-time social workers assisting our students in the Early Childhood Center through High School. Our social workers offer age-appropriate programs for students that address issues that students face at various developmental stages, including team building skills, role playing, and group activity social skills.

Farber Hebrew Day School implements the Safety Kid Program developed by Magen Yeladim International and spearheaded by our social workers, to prevent abuse in the school, at home, and in partner relationships. Our weekly  High School Advisory Program provides a forum for students to discuss sensitive topics with our advisory teachers and social workers including stress management, sexual harassment, online bullying, and appropriate social media use.
