At Ben Porat Yosef, we are committed to providing our students with an outstanding foundation for all of their future pursuits in education and in life.
It is our belief that this is best accomplished when parents and school function as partners.
We, at Ben Porat Yosef, understand that we all are seeking to help our children grow and develop with a richness of spirit, a desire to learn and the confidence to meet any challenge that is set before them.
It is our goal to instill in our children a love of Torah and Eretz Yisrael and to strengthen their minds and souls so that they may be active members and contributors to klal Yisrael as well as the broader society.
While Ben Porat Yosef provides excellence in academics, at the same time, our students experience a warm and nurturing "home away from home" so that they can comfortably grow socially and emotionally in an environment of Torah, Mitzvoth and ahavat Yisrael.
Our outstanding Judaic and general studies, and Hebrew immersion instruction, are taught in an environment that individualizes and is child centered.
We strive to help our students become the best they can be, to develop critical thinking skills, creative approaches to learning, and to become lifelong learners and independent thinkers.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with our parents, as together we will facilitate our students' growth and learning.
