BOYS PRE-1A-GRADE 8
Our boys are encouraged to love learning, love Torah, and love themselves. When our boys graduate 8th grade, they are equipped with the skills they need to continue their learning in the high school or mesivta of their choice.
Small class sizes and a large support staff ensure each boy gets the attention he needs. Our intensive kriah program, for example, guides our students from aleph bais in Pre-1A to sophisticated textual study in 8th grade.
We aim for academic achievement, but we want so much more for our children. Our rebbeim go out of their way to form authentic, trust-based relationships with each student, always remembering that a child is a human being first...and a student second.
Students who need extra help enjoy immediate access to our wide array of in-house specialists. Whether a child struggles with learning, language or social skills, he’ll get the help he needs from trained special education teachers.
Growing boys need real, touchable role models. Our full-time kollel — housed right in the middle of our boys school — creates a spiritually charged atmosphere and provides the real-life examples our boys seek as they learn about the importance of limud haTorah.
At Bais Yehudah, skill-building isn’t just for students. All our rebbeim are full-time, salaried employees — which means that when our boys start their afternoons, their morning teachers stay behind to sharpen their pedagogical skills, prepare their lessons, and communicate with parents and students.
This preparation time outside the classroom makes a world of a difference inside the classroom, ensuring that our children receive the best their teachers have to offer.
