about us

More than 60 years ago, a visionary group of parents conceived a bold undertaking. They desired to establish a yeshiva for the entire Jewish Community of Staten Island where boys and girls would receive the highest quality Jewish education combined with excellence in general studies. The result of this noble effort was the Jewish Foundation School of Staten Island.
Today, the Jewish Foundation School's home is a large campus at 400 Caswell Avenue. The school consists of almost 40 classroom, a lunch room, resource rooms, library, computer labs, basketball courts , a playground, a spacious and beautiful gym, Beit Knesset, and state of the art Science Lab. Our superb facilities are only an outward reflection of our magnificent legacy of educational accomplishments and achievements in Jewish and General Studies.
Our Caswell Avenue Campus is home to The Jewish Foundation School's acclaimed Early Learning Center(Kindergarten and Primer, ages 4-5) and The Jewish Foundation School's Primary (Grades 1-3) and Middle School (Grades 4-8).
The Jewish Foundation School's student body represents families across Staten Island, Brooklyn, and New Jersey and are served by a faculty and staff of more than 80 professionals. Our Graduates excel at Yeshiva High Schools and Beyond across the United States and Israel.
