We understand that the high school placement process is an exciting and somewhat stressful time. During this period of transition, Rashi’s Middle School Dean of Students, Joni Fishman, will work one-on-one with you and your student. As Ms. Fishman says, “It's not about teaching the students how to get into high school, it’s about teaching them life skills that will make them effective self-advocates in a way that highlights their strengths.”
We will work with your family to personalize the school placement process by celebrating your student's accomplishments, aligning expectations, and navigating the pathway forward. Every fall, Rashi hosts representatives from selective independent high schools in the area. Our Middle School administration will guide you and your student every step of the way - from searching for schools that fit individual learning style and goals to preparing for interviews and submitting applications to making a final decision.
Our outstanding high school placement record is the natural result of the type of students Rashi produces: capable, confident, self-aware learners who take on community leadership roles in educational settings and social justice opportunities. Below are the high schools attended by Rashi graduates in the last five years.
What Rashi has taught me from the very start is to question; to think critically, which is such an important skill in today's world. And that set me up for academic success.
