One of my favorite parts of Ma’ayanot is the weekly Thursday night Mishmar program. Each week has a theme, such as art, fashion, tefillah, and everything in between. We learn to look at each topic from a Torah perspective through choosing a text-based shiur, a discussion, or chaburah format. There is something for everyone and we’ve all learned so much.

I love the STEAM program. It promotes cooperation and it's really fun to build robots and electronic devices with our own hands. I also enjoy learning about how everyday things work.

I love Ma'ayanot because it's such a warm and friendly environment where you can truly be yourself.
Talia Simpson '19
One of my favorite parts of Ma'ayanot is the environment of open-mindedness and the genuine desire of the teachers to connect with us. I feel every day that, in addition to being intellectually stimulating, my classes include many discussions where our opinions are valued and our questions are addressed. Our teachers are also open to have meetings with us and to learn together with us
in their own free time.

Ma’ayanot has given me the opportunity to foster meaningful and lasting relationships with master teachers, and has encouraged me and my classmates to explore our own interests and cultivate leadership skills in those areas. Ma’ayanot has empowered me to be the best version of myself.
Shana Adler '16
At Ma'ayanot, I was challenged to think critically, lead extracurricular activities, and was encouraged to cultivate unique relationships with teachers and peers. I also found that Ma'ayanot's emphasis on fostering an environment for girls to learn Torah on such a high level is invaluable. When I graduated, I felt equipped to tackle the challenges that lay ahead of me, both academic and otherwise, in my college years and beyond.

I love Ma’ayanot because the teachers are such great role models and I know they care about our success.

Ma’ayanot gives us many opportunities to bond with students in other grades, including sports teams, Mishmover (when the whole school unites for a night of learning), the school-wide Shabbaton, and many chesed opportunities.

Because Ma’ayanot is an all-girls school, everyone feels really comfortable with one another.
