SINAI’s Rabbi Mark and Linda Karasick Shalem High School at Ma’ayanot Yeshiva High School is located in Teaneck, NJ. Serving girls ages 14-21, we offer a functional academic high school program designed to prepare students with developmental disabilities for rich and productive adult lives. Our hands-on, pragmatic curriculum stretches and challenges students while providing them with the critical skills they will need most as adults. We prepare our students to serve as contributing members of the Jewish community through a variety of hands-on programs including Work Study, World Awareness, and Life Skills.
Students at Shalem High School get the best of both worlds. We design a uniquely individualized program for each girl, with specialized therapeutic services built into her day. All of this takes place within our inclusive Ma’ayanot partner school, where SINAI students are full members of the Ma’ayanot student community--traveling on the bus together, eating lunch together, playing ball together, and participating in school assemblies together. Ma’ayanot’s Lunch Buddy Program partners students from Ma’ayanot and SINAI; many of these social relationships have lasted long after both students have graduated.
Our boys’ division is located up the block at Torah Academy of Bergen County. Boys ages 18-21 continue their education, with an emphasis on vocational preparedness and life skills, at Shalem at Heichal HaTorah in Teaneck.
