    By modern Hebrew script, I mean the Hebrew script used in classrooms and daily life in Hebrew. כתב יד?

    In everyday life we call the script "דפוס" and the cursive "כתב".
    "He wrote in cursive" = "הוא כתב בכתב"/"הוא כתב בכתב יד"/"הוא כתב בכתב עגול"

    "כתב עגול" is the least common IMO.

    Never have I heard the term "כתב עגול".

    Yeah I know... Nonetheless it's called that sometimes along with Print being called "כתב מרובע".
