ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT
NYHS is an expert in building engaged scholars, and academics are simply the baseline. NYHS is a school where values and character matter. Not only do our students attend top colleges, during their time there, they know how to be engaged leaders in campus life. Most importantly, our students are menschen, who conduct themselves with integrity, empathy, and strength.
NYHS allows students to refine their sense of self through rigorous academics taught by faculty who are committed to the school’s values, to ethical action, and to tikkun olam (repairing the world). We seek students who demonstrate academic ability, intrinsic motivation, intellectual curiosity, and good citizenship, and students who will enhance our community through their unique and individual talents.
