Brandeis Hillel Day School (BHDS) is an independent co-educational school providing an outstanding academic education for children in grades kindergarten through eighth.
Brandeis Hillel students become accomplished, independent, creative and critical thinkers who develop a life-long love of learning.
A low student/teacher ratio gives students individual attention and sets the foundation to build self-confidence through its nurturing environment.
Brandeis Hillel Day School offers an engaging, integrated and rigorous curriculum that includes a strong foundation in core academic disciplines: English, with an emphasis on writing, reading and public speaking, Hebrew, mathematics, science, social studies and Judaic studies.
We are deeply committed to the intellectual, social, spiritual and physical growth of our students.
We also expect our children to develop compassion, tolerance and mutual respect for others.
We guide them to become responsible citizens in our community and in the world.
We teach that kindness is important for its own sake.
At Brandeis Hillel Day School, our mission is to serve the Jewish community by providing children with an outstanding academic program in general and Judaic studies within a dynamic and diverse Jewish cultural environment.
