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.
"The turning point in my life was coming to RZJHS because that was when I became a leader. I was empowered by my teachers and I learned how to be a good student. I developed a good work ethic, I took initiative, and I got to shape a lot of things that are still in existence at RZJHS today. I definitely wouldn’t trade my unique experience for anything."
