Rochelle Zell Jewish High School Reviews

I graduated from RZJHS 4 years ago, and it truly was an incredible high-school experience that prepared me well for college as well as entering the professional world. The school has a rigorous dual-degree program with top-notch liberal arts courses, sciences, mathematics, as well as intense Judaics courses. The students who graduate from RZJHS go on to the best universities in the country (Yale, Princeton, Penn, Northwestern, UChicago) and excel there as well. The alumni community is extremely close-knit and the community is really a family from incoming middle-schoolers, to parents, staff, and alumni. If you have the opportunity to attend, I cannot recommend it enough!

An investment in my children's future; best teachers, loving and safe community, readiness for college, superior academics, and endless opportunities for leadership, athletics, and philanthropy.
RZJHS is an amazing high school. The academic standards are exceptional and the combination of religious tradition and modern thought are intertwined perfectly. The culture is amazing, and all of our events are filled with energy, passion, and love. The safety of the school is outstanding. Both the administrative and academic staff are kind, helpful, and provide fantastic insight. The athletic and arts programs are valued by the students. Overall, I recommend this school to any teen struggling or looking to begin/continue a Jewish education.
