ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
The Rabbi Jacob Joseph’s Girl School provides a high level of education for students in grade 1-8. Rabbi Jacob Joseph’s primary objective is to provide its students with the tools of scholarship and the elements of a value system which will enable them to advance to their next level of education. The goal of the designed curriculum is the development of an individual who has required the academic and ethical standards espoused by our Torah.
One of the most unique and exciting features of our school is our warm and dynamic atmosphere. RJJ envelops its students in a Torah environment in which to thrive and provides students with the tools which they need to be their very best. The school’s staff is singular in its dedication, concern and creativity. This reflects the school’s commitment to the success of each and every student-academically and socially-based on their abilities and needs. The synergy between the faculty and the parents in the school creates an atmosphere that gives children a sense of comfort while encouraging them to develop. Our core subjects merge with extra- curricular activities, special programs, resource rooms and individualized attention. The result is a school where students are baalos middos, happy to learn and academically advanced.
Our students graduate RJJ as true Bnos Yisrael, with a feeling of pride in their rich Torah Heritage ready to continue on to the next level of education and to continue the chain of Aim B’ Yisrael.
