The Rashi School’s secondary school results speak for themselves.
When our students graduate, more than 90% matriculate to their first-choice school. High schools welcome our students with enthusiasm, knowing that they are well prepared academically and socially. And when Rashi alumni are ready for college, they attend some of the most selective institutions in the country.
Middle School Dean of Students Joni Fishman has been advising students and their parents for over 20 years, bringing extensive knowledge of both independent and public schools and an understanding of fit between student and school. Rashi’s placement process begins in Grade 7 with a class forum for parents with Dean Fishman. She provides insight into standardized testing options, high schools’ admissions processes and deadlines, and opportunities to get to know each school.
Every fall, Rashi organizes a High School Fair on campus for Middle Schoolers and their parents. The Fair attracts more than two dozen secondary schools; representatives from the Admissions Offices share information and are available to answer families’ questions.
We work with every family one-on-one to make sure your student benefits from a personalized approach. What’s right for one student may not be right for another, and we partner with you to recognize your child’s strengths, personality, interests and expectations. Dean Fishman and Rashi faculty and administrators will guide you and your student every step of the way.

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.
