Experiences Build Learning Relevance

Student learning happens in many different ways, integrating different approaches and modalities to ensure that every child succeeds across the spectrum of subjects. Learning is made relevant through field trips, journeys, projects and hands on learning. Each year students help define their experiential learning paths. Yavneh students might imagine travel to outer space, explore the depths of arctic oceans, design and build an ice cream factory, publish newspapers and broadcast radio programs.

It combines learning history with the study of government, geography, literature, writing, art, music, science and Jewish studies.
