Message from The STEAM Coordinator
The Power of Transformation

I want students to understand that they have the power to create new inventions or transform existing products or services for the better.  Read more
Students in Action
Our 7th grade scientists collected plant specimens from the Yavneh campus and made wet mount slides in order to look at the different cell structures. 
Kitah Gan students are building a strong educational foundation...and a house!
Kitah Gimel Dvash is preparing to lead the Yitzhak Rabin Ceremony.
Kitah Bet visited Martial Cottle Park. The children experienced what it might have been like to be a child on a farm over 100 years ago. They studied the topography of Silicon Valley and observed the destruction of the orchards to make room for all of the people. They also learned about farming and Japanese American immigrants during WWII.
Middle School Student Council is studying to become the school’s tzedakah allocation board. 
Teachers in Action
Teachers engaged in a Kindergarten - 1st grade project based learning workshop at their professional development last Friday.
