Lower School Academics

Dual Curriculum

Beginning in transitional kindergarten, TVT has a challenging academic program that is known by the colleges and universities as a “dual curriculum.” In a dual curriculum program, students take classes in the standard academic curricula in addition to one class in Jewish Studies and one class in Hebrew Language.

Blended Learning

Blended learning, the method of using multiple media and methods to teach, has been around for decades. Only recently, however, has it come to mean a hybrid of combining face-to-face learning and small group activities with technology-based learning.

At TVT, our teachers can successfully individualize for each student by combining traditional interaction alongside personalized e-curriculum that is data driven specifically for each child based on his or her learning path and ability grouping.

Acceleration and Support

We meet children where they are academically and propel them to the next level of their educational journey. Many learning support services are included as part of tuition, and accelerated classes are available for all grades, TK-12.
