Gesher Yehuda Yeshiva views each student as an individual whose interests and abilities motivate their desire to learn and propel program direction. In the classroom there is a low student to teacher ratio. Through a flexible and comprehensive interdisciplinary approach, we remediate weaknesses and draw upon our students’ strengths to devise learning strategies.
Our in-house staff of therapists include: Speech, Occupational and Behavioral professionals. In addition our psychologists, social workers and curriculum directors work with classroom teachers to provide clearly structured, multi-sensory experiences in all subject areas.
Both individual and small group instruction are ongoing to enhance and increase personal and inter-personal skills. By helping students learn how to learn through strategies that fit their unique learning styles, they grow both socially and academically. By employing an interdisciplinary approach in a nurturing environment, parents, students, teachers, specialists and administrators work together for the benefit of the child.
When a highly individualized program is recommended or the parents of a struggling student are taking the initiative to learn more about educational options, our intake process is designed to determine the best course of action for the interests of the child.

Every student is guaranteed by the Board of Education to receive a fair and appropriate education - this does not mean however, that the Department of Education (DOE) makes it easy to obtain funds for private schools.
At Gesher Yehuda, we believe in breaking down the obstacles that stand between students and achieving their fullest potential. We help parents with the evaluation process from the application language to DOE hearings. We inform parents of deadlines, and develop reimbursement schedules to suit their needs.
