About YULA

YULA GIRLS HIGH SCHOOL (founded in 1979) is an Orthodox student-centered, college preparatory high school, where students are encouraged to find their unique and individual strengths. YULA provides guidance and an environment to cultivate those interests. Each student is encouraged to become her own leader and utilize her own voice while giving back to the community at large.

Students, teachers and parents work in partnership to nurture Torah observance and growth, love of learning, personal and communal responsibility, and an appreciation for the land and people of Israel.

Benefits of Attending an All-Girls School
 

YULA Girls High School is a place where girls are center-stage, where they have a wealth of avenues for self-exploration and development, where girls are given the tools to discover and meet their individual potentials.

A report prepared for the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools reveals that girls attending all-girls schools are more likely to have an experience that supports their learning than girls who attend coeducational schools. In particular, girls attending all girls schools state:

- Seeing increased potential and power in being a girl
- Greater ability to focus on their work
- Having higher aspirations and greater motivation
- Being challenged to achieve more
- Being more likely to engage actively in the learning process and speaking up in class
- More group studying
- Higher levels of support from classmates, teachers and staff
- Greater peer mentoring
- Greater confidence
- Increased interest in STEM
