Step 3: Visit Shalshelet/Student Interview

If it is determined that Yeshivat Shashelet may be the right fit for your child, we will call you to schedule a school visit. At the visit, your child will have the opportunity to visit classes, meet students, interview with a member of our admissions team and take a placement screening.

Step 4: School Observation

After your child visits Yeshivat Shalshelet, we will schedule an in school observation at your child’s current school. This will provide us with a broader picture of your child’s current placement and how he/she presents in a mainstream school setting.
