The class of 2016 is one of outstanding achievements, achdut and middot, and we couldn’t be prouder.

Beginning at freshman year orientation, we strive to prepare our students for their future–academically, as Jews and as individuals. Much of our effort is focused on building a sense of community within the class.

This year, as we saw our class of 2016 take their places as seniors, there was no doubt that we achieved that goal. The class of 2016 supported one another through challenges and feats and led the rest of our student body to become the first students in our new school.
