Why Beth Tfiloh?

We are honored that you are considering Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School for your child. We know that this is an important decision, and we are here to support you throughout this process.
Parents often ask why they should send their child to a Jewish day school. “Why should my child spend a third of their day learning Jewish subjects? Doesn’t that detract from their ‘real’ learning?” 

Not at all. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

Beth Tfiloh offers your child all the benefits of other private schools combined with something unique you won’t find in a secular school: the lifelong values, wisdom, integrity, compassion, and warmth of our Jewish tradition. Through their Jewish studies, your child will hone the critical thinking and analytical skills that are the essence of Jewish thought and learning.

A Beth Tfiloh education provides your child with:

  • A rigorous dual-curriculum academic experience that challenges your child to advocate for themselves, ask difficult questions, and pursue their aspirations.  
  • Small class size and individualized attention, so our teachers can champion your child’s needs 
  • A warm, nurturing environment, with outstanding educators who will teach your child to lead a life of purpose as a global citizen 
  • A full array of extra-curricular activities, allowing your child to explore their interests and hone their talents  
  • An immersive dual-language program that fosters both cognitive flexibility and connection to their Jewish heritage  
  • A supportive community that values academic rigor, intellectual curiosity, and personal integrity 

What it Means to Live a Beth Tfiloh Life

These are just a few of the reasons to choose Beth Tfiloh for your child – and for your family. We are a community like no other. A community that sticks together… for life.
