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 has provided such a great experience for my kids. Really great hands-on learning and focusing on the whole child.
Great School, TEADS & ECC. A wonderful community to join. Great parents, teachers, and class. We love TEADS.
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.
Small class sizes and individualized teaching makes this school special; my kids have really enjoyed their experience at TEADS.
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.
We have had a wonderful experience at TEADS. Both of my children are happy and well rounded. All of the teachers are caring and meet my children's needs.
This is a wonderful school, perhaps the best kept secret. Great teacher, loving atmosphere, good academics, and great value system. They really care about every single child, not in words but in action. I feel very lucky to have found them.
