Studies of Jewish day schools’ websites regarding opportunities for students to engage in physical activity (PA) have not been published. We analyzed the content of 516 North American Jewish day schools’ websites in 237 cities to ascertain mentions of sports (i.e., interscholastic) and PAs (e.g., intramural sports, PA clubs) and to determine how their prevalence differed by school religiosity, composition, and level. Overall, 41% and 45% of websites mentioned at least one sport and PA, respectively. Liberal (vs. Orthodox and Haredi), coeducational (vs. single sex), and schools with secondary grades (vs. elementary only) mentioned proportionately more sports, PA, or both.

The lecture will deal with the characteristics of excellent schools. These characteristics are based on the documentation of success stories of schools that were considered good and that succeeded in becoming excellent. Such documentation does not constitute the development of a new managerial theory, but rather reveals the unique components that led these schools to undergo a change from “good” to “excellent”. Although the lecture will deal mainly with the conceptualization of “an excellent school”, it will also briefly recount the success stories of the excellent schools.
