Our family has been with Yavneh for 7 years now, since Kindergarten, and we are so glad we made this decision and investment. Our boys really enjoy going to school, which is huge. We still have one in middle school and one in elementary still. They have had the privilege to engage with incredible teachers who meet each student where they are in the learning process. Yavneh emphasizes an experiential and integrated learning environment. This way what they are learning for social studies for example, gets explored in art, experienced in music, and even science/steam. They have related field trips and social action initiatives that keep the learning relevant. We love that the school focuses on are learning about repairing the world, being "upstanders" instead of bystanders, helping others rise to the challenge, working as a team, learning how to have productive conversations and discussions even when there is a disagreement, discovering their special talents, and getting a great education at the same time. I would highly recommend this school to any family who is looking to have their child grow socially and emotionally as well as acquire real-world skills that will help them become amazing adults.

Yavneh is the full package! The outstanding academics, passionate teachers, and balanced curriculum prepare children for the future. The community is warm and welcoming, and Jewish values are at the center of everything. Children are confident and well-educated, get the attention they need from teachers, and build lifelong meaningful friendships at this gem of a school. The best decision was to enroll my children in Yavneh. They truly love school and learning. They are getting a solid Jewish education and learning Hebrew in addition to their general studies. Each year is better than the next.
