Welcome to Beth Tfiloh Lower School! BT is an environment filled with warmth, an enthusiasm and curiosity for learning, and a strong sense of joy and pride with being both Jewish and American.
Beth Tfiloh’s team of supportive and accomplished teachers and administrators foster a nurturing and stimulating academic atmosphere. Character development is integrated into all we do and skills such as the foundation skills of literacy, numeracy, Hebrew language and citizenship are introduced, developed and mastered. Students are encouraged to be curious about learning and to deepen their emerging understanding of their world through science, art, music, technology, and movement. Our MakerSpace provides an opportunity for developing minds to solve problems, investigate interests and extend learning through hands-on experiences, while also supporting both independent and cooperative learning.
Our love for and attention to each student enables teachers to understand and best support each child’s strengths and needs. Starting with our youngest learners, we screen, identify and assist children who are in need of early academic support. Our classrooms often utilize smaller group learning to provide more individualized attention to students who either need more help or enrichment. At BT, our focus is always to help our students achieve not only academic success but grow their social and emotional intelligence as well.
