We’re reminded of the power of a Yavneh Day School education, at the end of every year, as we watch the eighth grade graduates command the JCC stage and auditorium.  Before us stand articulate, profound, introspective, funny, poised, mature young leaders, neither a falter in their step nor a quiver in their voice as they deliver speeches before hundreds of adoring fans.

High School Placement

Students graduate from Yavneh prepared to be confident, successful learners and leaders at the best local public and independent high schools.  Most are accepted into Advanced Placement and Honors classes.

Yavneh administrators and teachers guide eighth grade students and parents to choose high school programs that are most in line with the family’s educational goals. Administrators visit prospective schools and meet with Directors of Admissions to ensure smooth transitions, and then follow up with the family once the student is enrolled so that Yavneh can follow the student’s progress and success.
