Academics

At Northwest Yeshiva High School, students engage in an intellectually stimulating dual curriculum. Our mission is to prepare students to be independent learners and continue their Jewish studies for many years after high school. In addition to skill development, knowledge of content and active Torah study, we emphasize the importance of personal growth. Our staff creates a comfortable environment for students to ask questions, explore and discuss topics that interest them, both in the classroom and outside of the classroom. 

 

The General Studies program is committed to providing all students with a firm foundation and appropriate level of challenge in the subjects of English, History, Mathematics, Science, Hebrew, Fine Arts, and STEM. We partner with students to grow as self-advocates, collaborative peers, and responsible citizens. We aim to empower well-rounded and literate citizens of the 21st century who can engage with their community as active and caring citizens committed to the greater good. In addition to the core courses outlined below, our students have the opportunity to participate in several co-curricular activities.

 

Graduation requirements are comprehensive and rigorous. Honors and the University of Washington in the High School courses allow students to progress at a rate appropriate to their abilities and interests. Our dual curriculum approach to traditional and Judaic academic disciplines encourages students to explore all areas of learning and the extraordinary enrichment opportunities that NYHS provides to ensure an uncommonly exciting educational experience.

 

NYHS students are supported by faculty and staff who possess outstanding experience and credentials in their fields as well as a real passion for educating young people. Our teachers inspire students, connecting with them inside and outside of the classroom walls as educators, advisors, and coaches. An ongoing professional development program supports our faculty at all stages of their careers in areas such as pedagogy, inclusion and equity, technology, and discipline-specific knowledge.
