Jul 26, 2010 — Chaya Batya (C.B.) Neugroschl, an educator with nearly 20 years of pedagogic, curricular and administrative experience in both Limudei Kodesh and general studies, has been named head of school of the Yeshiva University High School for Girls (Central). The appointment is the culmination of a search that involved parents, faculty, board members and YU administrators, spanning both the United States and Israel.

Prior to joining YUHSG, Neugroschl has served as assistant principal and co-director of general studies at SAR High School since 2004, where she has introduced innovative curricular initiatives and special programming. Before coming to SAR, Neugroschl was the director of admissions at Ma’ayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls, where she taught Jewish history and philosophy.

Neugroschl’s educational background is impressive. She studied for two years at Michlala in Bayit V’gan before earning her BA at Stern College for Women in 1993. She continued her studies at Bernard Revel Graduate School, and then at Harvard University, where she received her MA in Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations in 1998.

“Mrs. Neugroschl brings to our school a very well developed and integrated educational vision,” noted Miriam Goldberg, chair of Yeshiva University High Schools Board of Trustees. “She has earned a well deserved reputation for working collaboratively with faculty and parents. Mrs. Neugroschl brings an established and accomplished track record of creating dynamic environments for learning, true intellectual exchange, coupled with setting standards for high levels of student growth.”
