School Notes:

  • We believe that children who are empowered to fail will take the risks that change the world. We believe in nourishing students’ hearts, minds and souls. We believe that learning should be joyful. We believe in introducing students to a lifetime of personal growth, sensitivity, responsibility and intellectual inquiry shaped by Jewish practices and thought. We believe that tikkun olam and ruach are central to education. We believe in a rich and rigorous integrated curriculum.
  • Let’s get something out of the way right now: you are holding thousands of individual moments of wonder distilled into a couple paragraphs. It’s good and true and interesting and exciting, but NOTHING is more important than visiting a school you’re considering for your child. Nothing will tell you more than being inside its classrooms. So if you haven’t visited our dynamic West L.A. campus yet, we invite you to join us for a Take-A-Look Thursday tour (8:30 a.m. each Thursday school is in session) or schedule a private tour. We want you to experience the joy and wonder of our school first-hand.
  • Because we’re Jewish day school reimagined for families like yours.
