More than 60 years ago, in 1954, a visionary group of parents conceived a bold undertaking. They desired to establish a yeshiva for the entire Jewish Community of Staten Island where boys and girls would receive the highest quality Jewish education combined with excellence in general studies. The result of this noble effort was the Jewish Foundation School of Staten Island.
The Jewish Foundation School’s more than 400 students representing more than 250 families reflecting the entire Jewish population of Staten Island are served by a faculty and staff of more than 80 professionals. The Jewish Foundation School’s acclaimed Early Learning Center (Toddlers, Nursery, Kindergarten and Primer; ages 2-5) and our Primary (Grades 1-3) and Main (Grades 4-8) Schools are all located in our recently completed campus at 400 Caswell Avenue in the heart of Staten Island.
