Yeshivah Education For Special Students
- Yeshiva Education for Special Students was founded in September of 1992.
- It is the only full-service, professional, special education yeshiva elementary school in Queens, serving girls and boys, grades K-8, with learning disabilities, ADD and language processing disorders.
- In addition to full curricula in both general and Judaic studies, YESS! is unique in offering individualized integration and mainstreaming at the award-winning Yeshiva of Central Queens.
- YESS! is located on the premises of YCQ and our students are embraced by YCQ students, administrators, and faculty members.
- In the recent past, YESS! students have starred on the YCQ basketball team, sparkled in the YCQ choir, and lained and davened for the YCQ minyan.
- It is the philosophy of YESS! that all Jewish children, regardless of their cognitive or physical challenges, have a place in the mainstream of the Jewish community.
- YESS! is committed to maintaining a nurturing, creative, child-centered school environment, to implementing the latest and finest methods of individualized special education for general and Judaic studies, and to maximizing mainstreaming and integration for each child.
