Head of School Welcome

Beth Hillel Elementary is one of the best-kept secrets in the San Fernando Valley. We pride ourselves on providing a boutique experience, in which every child is on a clearly defined and differentiated personal path to success. Social-emotional learning is equally important to academic success. Our children and teachers know each other in a deep and meaningful way, which creates an atmosphere where children can feel safe, confident, and truly supported. We focus on character strengths such as optimism, empathy, self-control, and motivation, as well as strong academic programming.


In our classrooms, every child is intellectually challenged and has the opportunity to become a leader. I consistently get the same feedback from the middle schools our 6th-grade graduates attend: “You can always tell which children came from Beth Hillel; they are poised, self-confident and have an insatiable thirst for knowledge.” As students graduate and go on to the finest public and private schools in Los Angeles, they take with them a set of tools that allow them to live in the world with meaning, purpose, and confidence.


Beth Hillel Day School is a place where kids are encouraged to learn a lot, have fun, and do mitzvot.
