Student Wellness

Yeshiva Schools has adopted a safe and resilient approach to student wellness. This wellness model provides increased access to behavioral and mental health services, effective community collaboration, an increased feeling of physical, social, and emotional safety among students, and positive and culturally responsive discipline policies and practices that increase school connectedness.

It is our firm belief that a school that prioritizes student wellness will create a safe and supportive environment where students will make positive connections with adults and peers. This will have a calming effect, enabling students to focus better, behave more appropriately, and feel confident to advance in life educationally, physically, and spiritually.

Yeshiva School’s Wellness Director establishes systems and protocols for the Wellness Division, aiding the implementation of psychoeducational recommendations through 504 and Individual Plans, supervising graduate-level students from various local university programs in providing services to Yeshiva students, and supporting the trauma-sensitive team in implementing school-wide trauma-informed policies and procedures.
