Jacksonville Torah High School begins our second academic year as the first school of its kind in Northeast Florida. Under the leadership of our new Principal, Ita Rabinowitz, we continue to strive towards successfully meeting our goals in a dual curriculum program of both stellar general studies as well as advanced Torah study. Keeping up with the pace of technology, students utilize accredited online courses in curriculums that are customized to provide individual students with personalized programs of study. With this approach, students gain the skills to become lifelong learners and succeed academically in high school, higher education, and beyond.
As a Torah High School, JTHS seeks to instill in our students a deep love for Judaism, Torah, G-d, and Israel. JTHS has a comprehensive Judaic Studies curriculum along with dynamic educators. Classes are based in Biblical texts, Jewish philosophy, and conversational Hebrew language with a focus on our connection to the land of Israel. Students are encouraged to ask questions to gain a greater understanding of their own personal Jewish identities. At JTHS, we are not just teaching students, we are facilitating the personal development of the next generation of Jewish families. JTHS encourages students to realize and actualize their own strengths, goals, and potential whether in the classroom, arts, sciences, or extra-curricular activities. Students are emboldened to nurture their creativity in areas that best suit themselves individually.
Among the most important aspects of our school’s mission is community involvement. JTHS aims to partner with local, religious, cultural, and charitable organizations. We are privileged to be a part of the Jacksonville Jewish community and strive to give students the opportunity to give back and contribute meaningfully. Through these relationships, students will gain positive experiences in giving of themselves and work towards developing themselves into future community leaders.
