Wonderful Early Childhood program. However, if you are looking for a great elementary education, look elsewhere. Also, it helps if you are Jewish. Kids who are not are either left out of the curriculum completely, or are forced to change their identities completely. What really turned me off was when I visited the campus. I turned into the main office building only to be greeted by a very loud abrasive woman on the phone. She was on a personal call and she was so loud!!! The content of her language was not suitable for a school. She is the desk/person everyone has to pass before getting to the office or anyone else-I think there should be some standard. All of this in consideration, I decided to leave after pre-school.
Temple Beth Am is amazing! The attention each child receives is the way how all schools should treat their students. The teachers truly care about each child as if they were their own. Dr. Star goes above and beyond what is required of her.
There is a new Head of School this year and as a result the academics are more rigorous. Also, they are offering more scholarships, which has been very helpful for parents. The class sizes are small and the teachers are able to really individualize instruction. They are conscious of creating a warm social climate and do promote anti-bullying philosophies. The Jewish/Hebrew instruction is limited. Your child will receive and excellent education, but this is not a good fit for special needs students.
Teachers spend the time to really get to know each child. The class size if small enough to encourage good interaction with the TWO teachers in each class - yet large enough to encourage development of good socialization skills. The school provides a rich environment outside the classroom including: - amazing library - fantastic science classroom with great teacher - a rich arts program beginning in early childhood and extending throughout elementary school - introduction to Jewish culture The academic program is extremely well regarded as TBAM is consistently one of the primary feeder schools for Ransom Everglades, Gulliver, and other local college preparatory schools.
