Guest Post: JFS Open House

The Jewish Foundation School of Staten Island invites all prospective parents to an Open House on Sunday, February 12 at 8:00 PM at the home of Uri and Devra Gutfreund in Bergenfield. To RSVP, email

·        JFS is affordable: tuition is roughly half the cost of most Bergen County day schools

·        JFS is established: JFS has openings in grades K - 8 and a 57 year track record of delivering on the modern Orthodox goal of integrating Torah and yirat shamayim with excellent secular education

·        JFS is high tech: computers are used to assess student progress in secular studies, smartboards are used in select classes, and the developer of teaches at JFS

·        JFS speaks Hebrew: JFS features an Advanced Ivrit Program and an emphasis on the importance of Medinat Yisrael

·        JFS is convenient: hours are friendlier for working parents (grades K-3 have an extended day with after-school homework supervision), and door-to-door transportation is included (transportation times are often no longer than the bus to "local" schools)

·        JFS is growing: there are currently Teaneck/Bergenfield children in grades 1 through 7, and additional children are already planning on enrolling for the 2012-13 school year

·        JFS gets results: the combination of a warm learning environment and high academic standards results in graduates attending top area high schools

Learn how your child will be inspired to grow in Torah and challenging academics. The Principal and Vice Principal look forward to meeting you and answering your questions. JFS has been providing affordable day school tuitions for 57 years. RSVP by emailing and come see what it’s all about.
