Large Crowd Experiences the RKYHS Difference at Open House

The Rae Kushner Yeshiva High School welcomed a full house at its Open House. One could feel the energy throughout the building as prospective students and their parents participated in an enlightening morning of programming that highlighted the distinct values embodied at RKYHS and the many opportunities both in and out of the classroom.. In addition to the large turnout from the current eighth grade at the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy, there were a large number of students from other schools and other areas including Bergen, Essex, Middlesex, Passaic and Union counties and Staten Island.

The program began with student speakers who shared their perspectives on how RKYHS has inspired them to excel academically, take leadership roles and pursue their passions. They spoke about how the smaller size of RKYHS has enabled them to form close bonds with their faculty, feel that their voices were heard and facilitate opportunities that would not have otherwise been possible. Head of School and Klatt Family Rosh HaYeshiva Rabbi Eliezer Rubin reinforced how each student matters at RKYHS and illuminated how RKYHS gives students opportunities to engage through multiple portals, with a supportive faculty.

The remainder of the program enabled parents to experience the RKYHS difference and values firsthand by participating in a sampling of courses offered at RKYHS. The prospective ninth graders had their own set of academic programming, school-wide extracurriculars, chugim and a Q & A with current students about student life and the RKYHS academic experience.

“We were thrilled to welcome so many prospective families to RKYHS at our Open House,” commented Allison Lyons, RKYHS director of admissions and community relations. “Our school is committed to our values, dedicated to offering a first-rate educational program and devoted to student learning and their individual successes, and we were happy that we could convey these core pillars to the prospective students. We look forward to being in touch with families to continue the admissions process.”

The school has already received many new inquiries and applications as more and more families come to experience the RKYHS difference. RKYHS looks forward to welcoming the class of 2023.
