Mission Statement

Tehiyah is a Jewish Community Day School committed to serving a diverse student body, maintaining academic excellence, and instilling in its students a love of learning, respect for individual differences, and a deep appreciation of Jewish values and culture.

Description

Tehiyah Day School is a Kindergarten - 8th Grade Community Day School located in El Cerrito, CA. Philosophy Tehiyah means renewal. Tehiyah Day School's education aspiration is to combine scholastic achievement in general studies with the richness of Jewish learning. To that end, Tehiyah structures its varied education programs to promote four basic goals: excellence in general studies, math, science, and humanities; depth of Judaic experience and knowledge of Hebrew; appreciation of the visual and performing arts and computer; and fostering the generous spirit of the child as an individual within our community. Tehiyah is a Jewish Community Day School that encourages understanding for all Jewish traditions. It is not affiliated with any denomination or movement. The diversity of Tehiyah community supports the governing framework of pluralism and acceptance. Jewish tradition is viewed as a reservoir of practices, values and concepts from which children can draw meaning and develop an informed connection with themselves, knowledge, and Jewish life. The school strives to realize its values in all aspects of its daily operations, combining Jewish and general studies and cognitive achievements with social and emotional development. The school often becomes a focus for community life and a source of enduring friendships. Its pluralistic ethos, high academic standards, and warm atmosphere bring the Tehiyah philosophy to life. At Tehiyah, learning is not merely a classroom activity but an attitude to all life's experiences; a primary goal is to evoke a commitment to a life of independent learning.
