The mission of Rabbi Oscar Z. Fasman Yeshiva High School is to imbue each student with the spiritual experience of Jewish living through religious observance and to develop a well adjusted person loyal to his heritage.

There is more to an FYHS education than just straight academics!


yeshiva academy game-55From bowling trips to ski trips to Shabbatons and Torah Bowl competitions," a FYHS student notes, “outside of class, there’s always something to do.”  The captain of our varsity basketball team sees interscholastic competition as something more than fun and games. “When I interact with people from other schools who aren’t necessarily Jewish, I have to represent the Jewish people,” he says. “They’re watching you, and if you act the right way, it’s a Kiddush Hashem.”
