On Tuesday, DRS High School hosted over 100 eighth-grade applicants from 15 elementary schools for a visit to DRS and a chance to experience what it’s like to be a DRS student for a day. Students from YCQ, HANC, Har Torah, South Shore, Yeshiva Ketana of Long Island, HAFTR, HALB, and several other elementary schools were warmly greeted at the doors of DRS by administrators and student leaders.
Each visiting student received a personal schedule to follow throughout the day, joining Gemara, halachah, math, science, and English classes that were geared towards the visitors. They also got a chance to enjoy “recess” in DRS’s beautiful gym. Following a lunch catered by Carlos and Gabby’s, the students moved to the gym, where they were treated to a taste of DRS’s extracurricular student activities, participating in a multimedia trivia game challenging them in areas of Gemara, Tanach, science, math, sports, English, Ivrit, and general knowledge. DRS is proud of the quality of students who will compose the ninth grade next year!
