Yeshiva Elementary School offers boys in grades 1-6 an opportunity to grow in learning, develop life skills, build positive Middos and create lasting relationships with Rebbeim and teachers. Teaching our students how to learn on their own, while simultaneously making learning stimulating and thought provoking, is key to fostering a lifelong desire to learn. Through intensive vocabulary training, understanding the structure of Chumash, Mishnayos and Gemara and learning b’chavrusa, our students develop the skills to grow into successful masmidim.
The General Studies Department at Yeshiva Elementary School offers a challenging academic program that not only teaches skills and content, but also teaches thinking. While our skills are aligned with Sunshine State Standards and Common Core Curriculum, our small class size allows teachers to tailor the curriculum to each child’s strengths and needs. A sequential curriculum, assessment and differentiated instruction ensure that students graduate from Yeshiva Elementary superbly prepared for any middle school they choose to attend.
The Boys School curriculum is enhanced by various academic programs and extra-curricular activities, which promote unity and school spirit and expand the knowledge of our students across the curriculum. Expos and contests offer opportunities to internalize information through a creative, hands-on approach. Fifth and Sixth Grade boys attend after school Mishmar each Thursday, in addition to regular Limudei Kodesh classes for all boys on Sunday mornings. Boys are encouraged to participate in Motzei Shabbos Mishmar as well as davening and hasmodah programs during Yom Tov and vacations, to help establish the importance of learning and to promote a student’s view of himself as a Ben Torah.To further this goal, the hanhala and rebbeim of YES work closely with Mechina Middle and High Schools, running joint learning and yom tov programs throughout the school year. The Mechina also offers several extra-curricular programs during chol hamoed Succos and Pesach. Students attending these programs find themselves inspired to continue growing and learning, and excited to attend Mechina Middle School.
