We believe education should not exist simply to transmit knowledge,
rather it should also exist to empower students to develop into lifelong learners,
thinkers, and contributors.
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.
Northwest Yeshiva High School is the only accredited Jewish high school to offer a dual curriculum in the Northwest. Our students are inspired, guided, and advised as they explore the world around them through rigorous academic coursework and religious studies. NYHS students are scholars with SAT scores on par with the top independent schools in our region and are accepted at top universities. Students also grow personally, religiously, and spiritually, leaving NYHS better prepared with the confidence and skills to meet the challenges ahead and with a desire to actively be engaged in Jewish life, a love for the land of Israel, and a deep commitment for tikkun olam (to repair the world).
