Rochelle Zell Jewish High School offers a college preparatory program that combines a rigorous general studies education with a comprehensive Jewish studies education, supplemented by strong athletic and fine arts programs, and numerous extracurricular activities and leadership opportunities. General and Judaic studies are valued equally at Rochelle Zell. When possible, subject areas are integrated to enable students to experience the secular world from the perspective of Jewish values and practices. Small classes and individualized instruction help each student find his or her own voice, solve problems creatively, cultivate respect for individual differences and develop a deep dedication to learning.
"Clearly, there are the lessons that are in our textbooks, like algebra, chemistry and Spanish. But at RZJHS, we also learned essential midot, or values, such as diligence and morality, that you can’t find in a textbook."
