Letter from Head of School

Community, Values, Academics and Friendships

It is a pleasure to introduce you to our joyful learning community!  TVT is more than just an exceptional college preparatory education rooted in Jewish values.  From Transitional Kindergarten to graduation, TVT provides a caring community that embraces pluralism and provides a one-of-a-kind experience to nurture your child with academic, emotional and character growth in preparation for college and beyond.  
 
Our carefully selected faculty are experts in their fields, and more than half hold advanced degrees.  With intimate settings of small class sizes, teachers form lasting relationships with students as they progress through the grades.  Innovative dual curriculum with individualized and blended learning challenge students to think critically, to work collaboratively and to explore creatively in state-of-the-art classrooms designed with the latest technology and curriculum.  
 
The success of our graduates speaks volumes about the opportunities our students have embraced at TVT. Fifty-five percent of TVT’s class of 2016 is attending a US News and World Report’s Top 50 University, and eighty percent of TVT students applying to a University of California (UC) campus were accepted. High school ACT scores, among the highest in Orange County, continue to rise, and our elementary students’ test scores have risen steadily over the past four years to new heights of excellence, illustrating the full strength of the TVT TK-12 academic program.  This is simply remarkable and a testament to the dedication of our students and faculty as well as the substance of the TVT curriculum.  
 
The TVT experience goes far beyond academics.  Immersion and service learning projects allow students to engage in high-quality, hands-on experiences, preparing them to become inquisitive learners, compassionate citizens and courageous leaders in their community and in the world.
 
I invite you to visit our exquisite campus and to discover what makes TVT so special. From faculty to parents, alumni and grandparents, you and your child become part of a community committed to inspiring your child’s journey to love learning, live values and discover heritage.  
 
B’ Shalom,
