Rating this school is easy. The teachers are smart, energetic, patient, and all around wonderful. My daughter runs to school every morning and doesn't want to leave at pick up. She reading well above her grade level, math skills are exceptional, and many many other great achievements. If there were 6 stars, this school would earn it.

Temple Emanuel was a wonderful school a number of years ago, however, with a large change in faculty and staff over the past couple of years, the quality has suffered. Currently, classrooms are left empty and the new head of school comes across as cold and arrogant. Hopefully, they can regain the reputation they once had. In the meantime, if Jewish education is important to you, I recommend looking into one of the other local Jewish schools like we ended up doing - all with a lot more to offer for similar tuition.

I strongly advise parents to find another school for their children. I do not trust the teachers and staff here and ended up taking my son out of the school. He came home with sand in his eyes, ears, mouth, and hair TWICE. The second time was so bad I had to take him to the emergency room because he swallowed so much sand. The teachers and staff are not attentive to the children and unresponsive to parents' concerns. If a Jewish education is important to you go to Pressman Academy. Great school and great teachers.

TEADS is one of the more unique learning environments a person could find for their child. The teachers and staff work in conjunction with Jewish traditions to create an environment which both challenges each child's strengths and nurtures the individual. I cannot imagine my daughter anywhere else.

TEADS is definitely a special place that I feel some parents don't realize until their kids go to another school. Having come from several schools before finding TEADS, my daughter and I have finally found a home. My daughter is in a school where she has a voice and is heard, is challenged and never bored, has friends all the way down to Gesher, learning to speak a third language, and has been introduced to new avenues such as chess, iPad photography, Lego robotics, theatre production and more. This is her second year there and I'm amazed how much she has flourished and the confidence she has gained by going to a school with small class sizes and indivialized attention. She goes to school happy every day and there's isn't much more I can ask for.

My two daughters have blossomed at Temple Emanuel Academy Day School. TEADS is a school that nourishes creativity and individuality. The artistic approach towards academics creates an environment where students are having so much fun, they don't even realize that they are learning. My older daughter learned to read and write both English and Hebrew in one school year, and is now reading above her grade level. Both of my girls are excited to get to school in the mornings and hate to leave in the afternoon. The intimate class sizes are ideal for individual instruction. The kids that graduate from TEADS are confident, well spoken and academically ahead of the game. Five Stars!

I've never been more thrilled or proud to be a parent at TEADS. All 3 of my children are happy, well adjusted and thriving academically. The personal care and individual attention the faculty gives to each of their students is inspiring and, as a parent, incredibly reassuring. They don't just enjoy teaching my children, they pride themselves on being involved on every level of their respective developments. Sending my children to a reform Jewish environment has afforded them the unique and privileged opportunity to be a part of a God loving institution where they've gained an increased appreciation of their culture, history and sense of identity and confidence. My children have learned to be proud of who they are as secular, Jewish children- while having an undeniable respect and appreciation of all other religions and varied backgrounds. As a parent, I have learned, through TEADS, what it is to raise a child to be his best- both academically and with a keen knowledge of how to love yourself and the world around you. What more could you possibly ask of a school. It's like having a third parent!

I have had three children at TEADS and it is such a fantastic school. The children are respected and celebrated as individuals, the teachers truly get to know them. The teachers are top-notch, the kids are challenged to do so much. Attend an "Author's Night" if you can and see what the students create, even the Kindergarteners! The school experience is deeply enriched with arts, music and spirituality, and a solid foundation of serious learning in math, science and language. My kids also learned Hebrew and ethics. My kids learned to play chess in first grade as part of their math program. TEADS nurtured my kids on so many levels, while also helping them acquire the tools to compete and succeed in the world post-graduation. Also, such a wonderful, down-to-earth, frendly and involved parent community. Exceeding my hopes!

My son went to the ECC and TEADS for Pre-School and had a fantastic experience. The teachers are kind and attentive and really get to know each child. It is a warm, loving and nurturing environment where kids can really take risks and thrive.

My school has the kind of experiential learning that keeps my second grader interested and bringing his excitement and questions home. The friendships formed by classmates and parents are special and long-lasting. My second son, now in high-school still sees his seven years at TEADS as a touchstone of his life and many of the skills he gained at TEADS are providing great returns.

Temple Emanuel Day School ( TEADS) was my dream school to send our 3 daughters after we entered their ECC. The day school is the most wonderful, nurturing and academically as well as socially fulfilling place I could imagine sending my children to. Everyone knows everyone and the staff is award-winning and absolutely fantastic. The small class sizes and highly qualified teachers make this gem of a school the perfect place. We are so happy and excited to be able to send our children to a Jewish private school and are lucky enough to qualify for financial help on top of it all.

If you are looking for an intimate environment for you and your children to connect with an inspiring Jewish community that is loving, kind and extraordinary you will find it at TEADS. Academic excellence and individualized learning are a priority. The best choice we could have made for our child's education. The parents work together with the 1st class administrative and teaching staff to build confidence in our children academically and spiritually.

TEADS is one of the best kept "great school" secrets in LA! It's a small "family" environment, catering to really smart, creative, "out of the box" kids, many of whom are gifted. Everyone knows your kids' name, no one gets lost in the shuffle, teachers are on the case 24/7, administrators doors are always open and parents voices are not only heard, they're essential. Academically, the kids are met wherever they are and challenged to go further. The curriculum is personally tailored to each child's unique challenges and talents. The Jewish education is joyful, liberal and inclusive of everyone. Our biggest challenge is getting our kindergartener to come home at the end of the day. We adore this place and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else!

Best words to describe TEADS: Community, warm, enriching, differentiated learning, out-of-the-box thinkers, joyous, creative, passionate... I have a second grader and a kindergartener who love school so much, when I pick them up, they often beg me to let them stay in after day because they don't want to leave. Both kids are excelling academically & socially. Lots of friends/playdates. Kindergartener reads and does math at a 2nd/3rd grade level. 2nd grader reads at a 5th grade level and does math at a 3rd grade level. I find both their teachers are always very responsive to my concerns/feedback as well as my children's needs. Neither has ever gotten defensive with me. Both teachers have made sure that my kids are learning the basics for their grades while also pushing them ahead with more advanced work. 2nd grade teacher even gave my daughter "creative thinker" assignments (ie list ALL the ways you can use a pencil) to do on her own time. Administration always offers to have private meetings with me and the teacher whenever I have a question or concern. I hear this from many other parents so I'm know I'm not the only one appreciating their personalized approach. We're very happy.

One word sums up this school - WOW. The academics are stellar (thanks to the award-winning teachers who actually have a passion for teaching), and just as important, this school is teaching our kids how to be good citizens through strong moral and ethical values that will carry them throughout life. My daughter was the new kid in class, and yet she was embraced with open arms by her classmates and all the staff on her first day. Also, it's a really tight knit community - every single staff member knows each kid and vice versa. You get the sense that everyone is looking out for your kid, no matter what. We are very lucky to have found this gem of a school.

What makes Emanuel unique from other schools is their emphasis in the arts and creativity and because the school is small your voice will always be heard. The teachers love what they do and are really talented educator always willing to help and get better. With small classes the education and attention your child receives is exceptional. Parent involvement and participation in school activities is very high resulting in even a better quality of care and education for our children. Emanuel has the right atmosphere for my family: people are friendly, welcoming and have mentch values. At Emanuel you get a warm feeling of belonging to a big nice family from the first moment you get in.

We love TEADS. The parent community was very welcoming to us as a new family. Our daughter's teacher is knowledgeable NAND compassionate. She teaches through hands on discovery and adapts to the individual needs of each student. No one is bored or left behind. The students all know each other and show their own sense of community. It's a wonderful school to help mold my child.

Teds for us is so much more then just a school, this is our community, our 2nd family, our home away from home. Each child in the school is an individual, not one out of many and is treated with the most respect and attention. The children are learning to be creative thinkers and problem solvers and at the same time being encouraged and challenged to learn more then their peers if they are capable too.

Temple Emanuel Academy Day School is a real gem. They offer opportunities for each child to develop and shine. Small classes and truly individualized curriculum, spirituality and prayer, hebrew language, and a family feel make this a special place. Everyone knows your child here: the Principal and Rabbis, teachers, and security guards. We know our children are safe (physically, emotionally , and educationally) when they enter the school. Our parent body is active and engaged and runs several fun events during the year, such as a Latke Party, Purim Carnival, Book Fair, etc. The academics are outstanding; the teachers are caring and available to talk about your child. Likewise, the director of education, the head of school, and the assistant principal are accessible and involved.

I'm an engineer and am very concerned about the lack of science and technology taught in our schools. A friend referred me to Tempe Emanuel and all I can say is wow! My child is learning 3-D modeling, robotics, programming, and Excel! Every day he comes home with great stories about science experiments! I'm quite impressed with the science teacher there, he actually has a real science degree and has done research, so understands how to conduct scientific inquiry.

the reviewers below are correct-this is one of the best schools in Los Angeles, period. Our younger daughter is in first grade and we have na older duaghter who went through a different Jewish school. The academics are incredibly high and we can already see that the scope of what our first grader is doing is far beyond what her older sister was doing at another local school. If you want Hebrew and Judaica, the amount is perfect for those of you who are concerned about the balance between general studies and Hebrew. The teachers are amazing-I have not seen this level of warmth, skill and thoughtfulness in teachers and a curriculum. We are so grateful to have found Temple Emanuel.

This is the best school on the Westside that nobody knows about. While there are many good public schools in the area, Emanuel Academy offers something more than strong academics. They offer an education enriched by the arts and music. The classes are very small - my son has two teachers in a class of 13 - and he has blossomed. He was previously in the academically focused Beverly Hills School System, where he was not thriving (although his brother was). We questioned whether or not a Jewish education would be limiting, but it has been uplifting instead. My husband is Jewish and I am not but the community is warm and embracing to all.

We enrolled our first child in the school, became members of the shul and the combination gave our family a warm sense of community. Our son attended TEADS kindergarten and graduated from 6th grade. He currently is a 10th grader in high school. TEADS prepared him very well academically and he has maintained the friends he made at TEADS. Our Daughter started TEADS in Kindergarten and currently is in the 6th grade. It has been a wonderful experience for her both academically and socially. She participates in many of the schools extracurricular activities, i.e. Theater, Choir and arts programs. She is will prepared and has the skills to enter a new environment next year for 7th grade.

My children have been attending Emanuel Academy for the past 9 years. My now 14 year old was 5 in 1997 when he first enrolled and then graduated in 2005. My twins are now in the 5th grade. Emanuel Academy not only provided them with a great education, but also made it possible for them to grow and flourish as people. They learned how to be sweet, respectful people as well as excel academically. Emanuel's style of education integrates the children's studies into all aspects of their lives. It is also a wonderful place for parents and families. I always felt completely comfortable dropping my children off every day. I knew that they would be cared for and educated on a highly personal level and Emanuel Academy became their home away from home. It has been a rich experience for all of us.

Emanuel Academy is one of the best kept secrets in Los Angeles. Even though we reside in the Warner School District, it was an easy decision to send our daughter to Emanuel Academy. Emanuel Academy provides an extremely challenging, but supportive, academic environment. My daughter's first grade class has eleven students in the class. The student teacher ratio in the class is less than 3:1 (Four teachers for eleven kids). The teachers are clearly there because they want to teach at Emanuel Academy. Most importantly, the school, including the students, teachers, parents and administrators, are very much like a family.
