My three boys attend. All started in kindergarten. The academics are amazing! Top 5 SAT scores in Orange county for the class of ''14. More Advanced Placement program awards then any other school OC school per student in "14. Completing many AP's is feasible as the homework burden is not nearly as great as at other local private and public schools. My eldest son is a top 5000 test taker both SAT and AP nationally and I attribute much of the success to the school and the individualized programming that allows gifted students to accelerate. Even more important, the school instills values and life skills that will pay dividends in the years to come. A great community of parents and individualized programming. The special needs learning center is amazing and I have personal experience with this as well. Advanced Institutes allow after-school programming for working parents until 4:30 pm 4 days a week in Math/Science, Arts/Music, Jewish Studies all currently built into the price of admission. Middle school and Upper school athletics programs allow for participation for all of those interested regardless of ability. I can't imagine a better place to send my children!

World class. Parents routinely burst into tears after visiting the school, saying, "I wish I could have gone here." Beautiful facilities; outstanding, dedicated faculty and staff. The ability to focus on the specific needs of every single student. My 4th grader actually said, "I wish it weren't Sunday. I wish I had school today." He never said that at his previous school. This school is as good as it gets.

As an alumnus of the class of 2009, I look back on my 13 years at TVT with a sense of eternal gratitude for the teachers, administrators, staff and life long friends I made at this school. TVT truly became a second home to me, a place I grew up surrounded by people who forever positively impacted my life. Even though 5 years have passed since graduating, some of my closest friendships and professional relationships have their roots in Tarbut. For me, the community of exceptional people speaks volumes about why every Jewish child in Orange County would be fortunate to experience a TVT education. The curricular and extracurricular opportunities positioned me for success far beyond my developmental years. Whether it was inside the classroom, participation in clubs like ASB and Mock Trial or service trips to New Orleans and Kenya, TVT instilled in me a sense of discipline, a powerful work ethic and strong Jewish values that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. TVT is a timeless investment into your child's future.

My Daughters started TVT in Kindergaten and both have had an amazing experience to date. Once we started our first daughter at TVT we knew we could go nowhere else. Each year the girls have had an amazing experience with excellent teachers that help them soar. The girls thrive in TVT's academically and Judaic rich environment that helps them achieve academic success but also reinforces our family's Jewish values and help them to be a "mench". Our girls are receiving an excellent education where they are becoming critical thinkers. TVT offers an amazing lesson plan which provides the children not only the basics, but also includes as part of their curriculum, a robust science program, music, art, computers, foreign language, and Jewish Studies. We have one more child who just joined the TVT family in 2012 when she started kindergarten, and I am confident that her experience at TVT will be the same as her siblings. TVT's kindergarten set the stage for children to have a passion for learning that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. If you are looking for a private school please take a tour. You will see why I am so excited by TVT!

Our daughter started Kindergarten this year and we have had a wonderful experience. The teachers are caring and nurturing while encouraging the kids to do their best. The differentiated approach to learning allows students to learn at their own pace and keeps them challenged. The campus is beautiful and is set up in villages so it feels small and intimate for each grade. The school does a great job of integrating students of all ages together for example the kindergarteners were taught cheers by the high school cheerleaders for a school spirit night. The school has been warm and welcoming to our entire family and we look forward to spending many more years at TVT.

This is our 9th year at this wonderful school. Our 3 boys are thriving and have grown to feel TVT is their family. The teachers are warm and caring, and our boys each get the attention and educational instruction they need. I feared when we left pre-school that I would miss being an environment that felt safe and special but TVT has maintained that all the way through 12th grade. I feel so fortunate to be a part of this community.

What is a lab school? It's a K-12 school or school with some variation of those grades which is operated by a university or college.
Helicopter, velcro and snowplow parents can't stand the thought of their children having difficulty with anything. Over-protective parents come in several flavors. More here.
