Our Mission

Our Mission

The Leo Baeck Day School nurtures each child academically, spiritually, physically, and artistically, while providing a modern and meaningful Jewish educational experience.

A Leo Baeck education offers your child the best of all worlds: a Jewish education that is at once progressive and embraces tradition, paired with a powerful academic program that engages with the world.

Discover a school where children are flexing their creative and critical muscles, deepening their Jewish identity and becoming their very best selves in a warm and supportive community.
