General Mission Statement
Infusing leadership with compassion is the mission of Bnos Menachem.
This synthesis will make its students the visionaries of tomorrow, each dedicated to transforming her home, her community and her world into a place of perfection, G-dliness and good.
Bnos Menachem School is the unanimous choice for parents seeking a level of education above the ordinary.
The school for girls in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, was established in 1999, by a small team of individuals who wanted better than the mediocre.
Their vision was to create a learning environment that promoted traditional and chassidic values through modern methods and technique. Bnos Menachem, literally the daughters of Menachem refers to the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, who spoke with great emphasis on the urgency to educate young women, for ultimately they determine the course for the next generation.
The school is a tribute to the Rebbe’s leadership. Limited class size, attention to detail and enveloping concern for every individual, allow Bnos Menachem to champion each student to cultivate her talents and recognize her own potential.
Now in our 17th year, Bnos Menachem enjoys the reputation of the school that offers balanced Judaic studies and general studies curriculum, plus many avenues for discovery and promotion.
At the academic level, our teachers are regular participants in workshops to improve their professionalism and knowledge. They customize the lesson so all of the students can benefit. Concepts are woven into practical messages, via smart board, projector or video presentation, which means they are readily absorbed and retained. Principals meet often with teachers to review and enhance the lesson and method of delivery. Open communication with parents is welcomed and appreciated.
Bnos Menachem invests much time and energy into the details, which change this school from a brick place of learning to a warm learning environment. Every teacher looks to the welfare and well being of students and makes recommendations that will support the student as needed. Our in house mental health professional is available daily to meet with any child of any age for any reason. Students enjoy two meals a day, served with a variety of options to appeal to most preferences. Written work and art work is proudly displayed. We encourage students and parents to share their talents and professions in ways that can be incorporated into daily learning.
Bnos Menachem continues to see many positive results from our efforts and while we are proud to have come this far, we will increase our efforts to achieve more for the satisfaction of our children and their families.
