The Yeshivah of Flatbush (“YOF”) is more than just the largest co-educational modern Orthodox Yeshivah in North America educating over 2,100 students in its Elementary and High School campuses. Since 1927, the school has stood at the forefront of American Jewish education and has set the standard of excellence emulated by other academic institutions worldwide. With its pioneering and unwavering commitment to Torah U’Madah, the Yeshivah of Flatbush continues to prepare its students to be Jewish leaders, steadfast supporters of Israel, lifelong learners and staunch contributors to the greater Jewish and secular communities.

YOF boasts over 12,000 alumni, many of whom are engaged in leadership roles in supporting the academic, extracurricular, operational, capital and tuition assistance needs of the school. Two alumni have won the Nobel Prize, one is a Justice of the Israeli Supreme Court and many are pathfinders in the arts and sciences and leaders in communities around the world. The Yeshivah of Flatbush has an unparalleled reputation as one of the most selective and demanding schools of its kind in North America and is committed to continuing to foster its core values of excellence, innovation and leadership.

The Elementary School (“ES”) proudly educates over 1,500 students in its Early Childhood, Lower and Middle Divisions. The Elementary School campus is comprised of four buildings totaling 130,000 square feet, including a recently acquired building for its youngest Early Childhood students. YOF is in the midst of a multi-year effort to renovate and upgrade its Elementary School, including new Early Childhood classrooms, computer and science labs, and its technology infrastructure. A YOF Early Childhood Technology Center and State-of-the-Art Smart Space computer lab will soon provide an exciting environment for additional exploration and discovery.

The Elementary School boasts an impressive number of innovative resources, programs and initiatives, all thoughtfully designed to best enrich and develop the intellectual, religious, physical, social and emotional growth of its children. Through YOF’s intensive dual-curricular structure and distinctive Ivrit B’Ivrit Judaic Studies curriculum, students are encouraged to develop a strong love of Judaism and deep connection to Israel and the Jewish people. A robust offering of extra-curricular activities, educational trips, academic teams, competitions, special events, and sports teams for boys and girls provide opportunities for personal growth that extend far beyond the classroom. Great emphasis is placed on midot, chesed and leadership in all Elementary School programming.

To nurture academic excellence, on a curricular level all teachers are encouraged to work across their disciplines and expose students to an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning. Judaic and general studies faculty are continually supported with ongoing professional development. The Elementary School’s outstanding team of faculty and staff are committed to guiding children to lead inspired lives of purpose and influence.
