I’m looking to compare prices for yeshivas (non co-ed) in central NJ. Can you please post school name, location & tuition structure?June 28, 2015 3:57 am at 3:57 am #1089265
Just to clarify – this is for elementary aged children (Pre-1A through 8th grade).June 29, 2015 3:53 am at 3:53 am #1089267
Yeshiva of Elizabeth was 8,900 for nursery through 14,000+ for eighth grade. I think there was a certain discount per child if more than three were enrolled. They are the feeder school into bruriah and rtma.June 29, 2015 5:57 am at 5:57 am #1089268
Besides the fact that yishuv ha’aretz is a mitzvah, just seeing these prices alone is enough reason to make aliyah. $8,900 for nursery school? You’ve got to be kidding me! $14K for eighth grade? That’s college tuition for a year!June 29, 2015 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm #1089269

Sorry, it may be alot of money, BUT this not expensive tuition. My daughter’s last year of HS – she is now 29 was 17,500. and that was a long time ago.
FYI, regarding cost of college – yes public college is around 10,000 a year, without textbooks or transportation, BUT private ie: Stern, YU, Touro Grad, is over $40,000. a year.June 29, 2015 1:29 pm at 1:29 pm #1089270
It’s takahmamash a very good idea to do extensive homework before moving to E.Y. because of the high tuition costs in the U.S. I’ve been living here for over 30 years, so I have some knowledge of what I speak. The rule “you get what you pay for” is fully operable in this case. There are numerous sub-standard schools, principals, teachers in schools belonging to all the various streams. Everyone has heard stories about families immigrating and their kids never fully integrating and ending up on the streets …. And please don’t pull the “better on the streets of E.Y. than in the U.S.” nonsense. The streets here are just as bad. I won’t elaborate further on this forum. Just remember that “caveat emptor” applies to Israeli schools just like to anything else.June 29, 2015 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1089271
many people there send their kids to a charter schoolJune 29, 2015 3:18 pm at 3:18 pm #1089272
Why can’t you call or email the schools and ask them?June 29, 2015 6:54 pm at 6:54 pm #1089273

I also live in E”Y; I also have experience with the schools here.

We didn’t move here because of the loser tuition; we moved here because it’s a mitzva to do so. The lower tuition just happens to be one of the benefits.

This has absolutely nothing to do with the cost of tuition. It also, for the most part, has nothing to do with the schools, either.June 30, 2015 5:26 am at 5:26 am #1089274
takah: I’m pleased to hear that you have experienced success, and I was not demeaning that success. Halevai veiter bey alle yidden. I merely meant that before deciding to lower your tuition bills by moving to E.Y,, a U.S. family had better do their homework, research where they want to live, and which schools they want to send their kids to. The problem is more acute when moving here with teens or pre-teens. Those years are extremely difficult under the best of circumstances, and for many, a new life and environment in E.Y. makes it that much harder. I’ve heard so many horror stories about kids from really good families, families in which the parents were moser-nefesh for Torah and mitzvos, where their children were somehow considered “not suitable” for this or that institution, and ended up on the streets falling into the most horrifying and debased existence. I also agree that benefiting from lower tuition is surely a legitimate benefit. People should just make sure (as much as possible) what they are facing once they get here.
