The Stephan Gaynor School West 89th and West 90th Street
Congregation B'nai Jeshurun recently purchased the building at 270 West 89th Street from the Abraham Joshua Heschel School for $20 million. The trade symbolizes growth for two Jewish institutions on the Upper West Side. B'nai Jeshurun had rented space in the building from Heschel for its Hebrew School since 1984, when B'nai Jeshurun sold the building to Heschel.

Many private schools have long waiting lists and have admission requirements/procedures similar to colleges and universities. Most private schools require mandatory testing from the Educational Records Bureau (ERB) as well as interviews, school tours, and references. The best time to contact schools for brochures, applications, and procedures is after Labor Day and ERB testing forms should be completed in early October.
