BINA High comes back from 100% virtual with caution and success

by | Mar 5, 2021 | Other News

The BINA curriculum actively encourages high school students “to develop their love for Hashem, His Torah, and the Jewish people.” The close-knit BINA staff partners with parents to help each student actualize her potential in a supportive and challenging academic environment. The tenets of BINA are pride in heritage, community involvement, and preparation for the future.

BINA offers dual-enrollment classes for upper-classmen, giving them a head start on college credits while attending high school.

“We are very proud that almost 100% of our graduates go to Israel for a year of learning after high school, and then go on to pursue a higher academic degree,” says Aviva Harpaz Menaheles, BINA Head of School. “Just last week, an alumna sent me a picture of her newly-earned CPA license!”

BINA was completely virtual at the end of the 2019–2020 school year.

“We are very grateful that we have been able to be open for in-person classes this year. We are trying to maintain our pre-COVID schedule and extra-curricular program as much as possible, and have been pretty successful with that. Our students have a new level of appreciation for school and are so happy to be here!”
