My daughter's experience have been awesome here at Yavneh. It's her second year, and when I ask her who her favorite teacher is, she seriously said, "All of them!" The teachers here are very qualified and really care that each student maximizes their potential. That's true not just for those that need a bit more help, but for whatever level they are learning at they are always challenged in a fun, caring way. This applies to the basics like English, math and science, to the more specialized Hebrew, Jewish studies, art, music and physical education, and more diverse studies as they get older. As an example, when my 1st grader comes home talking about artists that I had heard of, but she knows all about, it's pretty amazing. I grew up going to Jewish day schools, but I learned none of that. The other great thing is how much time and effort daily goes into teaching values and life skills so at the end we have children that are wonderful people. Here at Yavneh, parents,students and staff form part of a community. It doesn't mean we all have to agree, Jewish schools definitely value questioning! but we all know we're trying to do our best for our children and the school is, too.
