Nourishing the Mind, Body, and Soul

There is a jewel in the heart of Valley Village that represents the best of where young minds, bodies and souls meet in a clean, loving and enriching academic setting. Year after year, Adat Ari El Day School parents take comfort in sending their children to a school with heart, vision, community and small class sizes.

Today’s Day School, which is home to more than 225 students, features a beautiful state-of-the-art facility which houses modern, colorful classrooms with the most technologically advanced learning tools such as Smart Boards and iPods; fully-equipped computer and science labs; a resource learning lab; an art studio; a multi-purpose auditorium, and a computerized library.

The newest campus upgrade boasts an impressive state-of-the-art Sports Pavilion. The Pavilion provides year-round shelter from the San Fernando Valley sun and from rain during the winter months. The structural design and “smart ceiling” increases air circulation and lowers the temperature by 20 degrees; ensuring children participation in physical activity despite external conditions that might otherwise keep them indoors.

Lana Marcus, Head of School, says, “The goal is to cultivate a school dedicated to excellence in learning. We want to ensure an environment that fosters the academic, emotional, social, physical and spiritual development of our students, and teaches social justice in and out of the Jewish world.” Sari Beth Goodman, Director of General Studies notes, “Our academic performance continues to climb, and our school continues to grow as a cutting-edge, competitive institution.”
