NYHS is a school where we invest in our student leaders, where clubs and co-curriculars are places where students can express their own unique talents and pursue their own interests. That is why we will continue to invest in developing signature programs such as journalism, drama, 3-D modeling, entrepreneurship, and Israel activism to enable all of our students with authentic opportunities to contribute to the common good in a passionate and meaningful way. This investment into our children’s Jewish education is core to NYHS growth strategy, it is sound educational practice and aligns what we say with what we actually do.  The benefits to our students and families will also pay dividends to the strength and future wellbeing of Seattle’s growing Jewish community.
