The student government at Rochelle Zell Jewish High School, known as the Va’ad, serves both our students and the school at large. The Va’ad has three main goals: to improve student life and morale, to communicate students’ concerns and ideas to the administration, and to brainstorm and delegate events to other active organizations in the Rochelle Zell student body. Students elect the officers each spring, and a ninth grade representative is elected in the fall.
"I love RZ because of the atmosphere of intelligence, drive and laid-back humor. This atmosphere fosters a unique student-teacher dynamic, characterized by respect, high expectations and comradeship."
