Silverstein sendoff


Most graduates of Great Neck’s Silverstein Hebrew Academy will advance to the top yeshiva high schools throughout the tristate area next fall, the school announced.

To date, SHA eighth grade students have been accepted into the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County High School, North Shore Hebrew Academy High School, RAMAZ High School and Yeshiva University High School for Girls (Central).

“Our students are advancing to the top high schools in the region, which speaks to our dedication of ensuring each child succeeds in both their academic and Judaic studies,” said Shireen Butman, head of school at SHA. “We focus on creating a true feeling of family and community within SHA and instilling responsibility and caring for one’s community in our students.”

“A SHA graduate has been given the skills to confidently succeed in any competitive academic setting while proudly owning the core values of Jewish ideology and values,” added Chanie Geisinsky, associate head of school at SHA. 

SHA, with 220 students, offers secular and Jewish studies from nursery school through eighth grade with a high teacher-to-student ratio of 2:10.
