FIRST JEWISH ONLINE HIGH SCHOOL OPENS

Davie, FL – April 26, 2017 – David Posnack Jewish Day School, a top 5 private school in Florida, has announced the opening of Posnack Virtual School (PVS), a live, online private Jewish high school. PVS offers Jewish students around the country the opportunity to study at the Florida’s highest-ranked Jewish high school. PVS students learn in real time, using technology to interact live with teachers and fellow Posnack School students. As an example, Posnack Virtual students enrolled in an honors class meeting at 10:00 a.m. attend the class virtually alongside other Posnack Virtual honors students. PVS students receive a full college preparatory curriculum in addition to taking Hebrew and Judaic Studies classes.

“There are many options for self-directed learning, but most students have better learning outcomes when studying with a live teacher, interacting with other students,” explained Dr. Brandon Diamond, Posnack Virtual School’s principal. “Our format will allow Jewish students who do not live near a Jewish high school to get the same quality education as the students in our brick-and-mortar school.”

Posnack Virtual School will be open to students living in Florida north of Boca Raton, south of Downtown Miami, or west of the Everglades, and to students living in select other states. Jewish students in these areas are not currently served by a Jewish high school. Posnack Virtual School will provide unprecedented learning opportunities to Jewish high school students living in those areas.
