“Together. Educating. Accepting. Diversifying. Supporting.


Together, we are strong. Together, we are Temple Emanuel Academy Day School.”


It is truly an exciting time as Temple Emanuel Academy Day School (TEADS) enters its 42nd year. With small class sizes, an arts-infused curriculum, and an emphasis on character building through challenging goals, TEADS is the best-kept secret in Jewish elementary education.

The TEADS philosophy is steeped in progressive education with a blending of fundamentals, critical thinking, and creativity. Our teachers are experienced and passionate, and rely on experiential learning and differentiated instruction to provide an academic experience like no other. SmartBoards and iPads are used throughout our curriculum to keep our students on the technological forefront of learning.

Our multiage classrooms offer opportunities for collaboration and intellectual growth, which is why TEADS students are the scientists, lawyers, educators, actors, musicians, designers, executives, photographers, accountants, and even rabbis of the future. We believe that the earlier a person identifies the gifts s/he possesses, the more opportunity there will be to cultivate those talents. For example, Abigail is a recent TEADS graduate who had her first iPhone app accepted to the Apple app store. Abigail took her vision of the Simple Binary Calculator from conception to programming and wrote the business plan all on her own. She is currently an 8th grade student at Milken Community High School. 

Jewish customs, rituals, values, and teachings also play a significant role in positioning our students to succeed in the future. Understanding the beliefs of those who came before you is fundamentally important to the development of the mind and the soul, and helps cultivate personal understanding. Interpreting our ancient literature fosters creativity, stimulates intellectual potential, and bonds our students to their roots. Our value-based Judaic curriculum cultivates positive behavior and a caring attitude towards others.

Housed in the Steinbaum Building of Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills, TEADS attracts students from Beverly Hills and the Greater Los Angeles area. Some parents even make the daily commute from as far as the valley, as well as Brentwood, Santa Monica and Marina Del Rey. Their reasons for doing so may vary, but there is one thing everyone can agree upon: the best kept secrets are meant to be cherished.
