״טעמו וראו כי טוב ה׳״, "Taste and see that God is good." These words of King David in the 34th chapter of Tehillim are referenced on our school's logo and with good reason. Taste and sight are very active senses. One does not passively taste fine cuisine and one does not casually look at a magnificent piece of art. King David challenges us to fully experience Hashem by immersing ourselves actively in pursuit of the knowledge of God. So too, the experience of learning at KYHS is active. Our students and our teachers are actively engaged, learning together and striving toward achieving the most and greatest that each of us is capable of.
Our students excel in Judaic Studies and in General Studies, and upon graduation they continue their education at the finest yeshivot, seminaries, and universities at which they continue to be engaged, challenged, and inspired. We are proud of the fact that over 90% of our graduates spend at least one year of study in Israel before continuing their studies in college.
Every day at KYHS is another step in an exciting journey of growth and development. Personally, I love walking into the building every morning and feeling the energy of committed young men and women who love their school. I am so proud of our students; they work hard and play hard. Whether learning Gemara or Tanakh, whether studying Shakespeare or Physics, our students are fully invested and fully engaged. Whether on the athletic field or in any of the myriad co-curricular activities, our students put their heart and soul into spreading school spirit.
I hope that as you look through our website you'll be able to get a glimpse of what makes our school such a dynamic learning environment in which we are all engaged in a process of challenging and inspiring ourselves.
