What We Believe:

Photo of Private Jewish Elementary School in Los Angeles, CAWe believe that the groundwork for a lifelong journey of discovery is laid upon two converging paths: a highly academic curriculum that emphasizes achievement through individual learning approaches; and an immersive Judaic program that incorporates the knowledge, language, heritage, rituals, and values central to Jewish identity as an individual, within the family, the congregation, and beyond. When our students leave Valley Beth Shalom Day School they leave prepared to achieve, succeed, and contribute.

We are all on a lifelong journey of discovery that is informed, enlivened, and enriched by academic achievement, spirituality, community, and personal growth. A superior elementary school-level foundation for this journey is the objective of Valley Beth Shalom Harold M. Schulweis Day School. The VBS Day School faculty and staff are dedicated to creating a partnership between home and school that will enable each child to strive to reach his or her potential.
