Academics

At Weizmann Day School, we are committed to maintaining small class sizes and to differentiated teaching strategies that fit individual students' educational and social development.

Students learn core skills in an integrated curriculum that includes reading, writing, literature, mathematics, science, technology, social studies, art, music, physical education, Hebrew language, and Judaic studies.

At all grade levels, we enrich the academic curriculum with specialized programs, including field trips and project-based learning. Our students participate in art and music workshops, classes in art and music appreciation. On-line Wi-fi access and other technological resources are available in every classroom and are consistently integrated into the students' daily studies and projects.

Weizmann graduates transition seamlessly to the area's leading private secondary and high schools including (most recently): Polytechnic School, Westridge School for Girls, Sequoyah School, Flintridge Preparatory School, the Waverly School, and de Toledo High School. Students have also transitioned well to arts magnet schools, such as the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, as well as honors and gifted programs at local public schools. Weizmann provides an excellent foundation for students to excel at secondary schools of all sizes and educational philosophies.

Our alumni have gone on to attend selective universities including UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley, Tulane, Emerson, Harvard, Columbia and NYU.

All of our classroom teachers are credentialed and most have also earned advanced degrees. In addition, all Weizmann staff are certified in First Aid and CPR and trained yearly in emergency preparedness.
