In 2001, a visionary group of leaders in Chicago set out to create a new high school that would combine the very best of the humanities, sciences, fine arts and Jewish studies together. They envisioned a place where students attending day schools could continue their Jewish education during the years that have the greatest impact on their Jewish identity. These leaders foresaw a place where public school students entering high school could deepen their understanding and appreciation of their Jewish heritage.
This dream is now alive at Rochelle Zell Jewish High School.
Since the beginning, Rochelle Zell has earned a national reputation for its commitment to academic excellence. Every year, more Chicago-area families are discovering how Rochelle Zell’s outstanding faculty, integrated general and Judaic studies curriculum, vibrant community and exciting student life provides Jewish high school students with a unique opportunity to achieve their full potential.
In whatever professions our students choose, they graduate from Rochelle Zell with the knowledge, confidence and skills to follow their own dreams while remaining steadfast to their Jewish heritage.
