Tarbut V'Torah Community Day School Reviews

Amazing all around! My son on the autistic spectrum needed a full time aid in 1st grade, struggled through middle school elsewhere. We brought him back to TVT for high school after 3 years away worried as to whether he could successfully make it through high school. The learning center support was unbelievably great as were the teachers helping my son. He was recently accepted to a top 25 US University and 4 other schools with large merit packages. We are so proud of what he has accomplished with the help of everyone at the school. He was a 2 sport 4 year varsity athlete, a club leader and has become a confident, polite young man with a heart of gold. The school community is really a family and we are blessed to have Dr Davis, Ms Quigley and other very capable admin and staff at the school. The Film, Math and Engineering programs are truly one of a kind in OC if not the nationally.

I only attended Tarbut V'Torah for less than half a year in 8th grade, but I had a great experience! Switching from a public school to a private school really made a difference on how the teachers taught and the overall environment. All of my teachers were amazing and the faculty was very friendly. My grades improved significantly here and changed my perspective on learning. I started to care a lot more about my grades and the effort I put into all my work. I would highly recommend this school to anyone that wants to receive a Jewish or Non Jewish education.
This amazing school is amazing in large part because of the community feel. Some teachers are outstanding while some others are less than stellar. One of the things I appreciate most about the school is the emphasis placed placed on building character in the kids and most of the kids there feel like grades matter - a lot! Definitely some health competition for grades among the kids. One of the things I do not like, the reason I gave 4 stars and not 5, is in the last two years or so there is an emphasis on building "diversity" (read as: recruiting smart Asian kids) so that the school can boost the avg. grades they report and boast "best of" statistics. While I am all in favor of diversity, If I wanted to send my kids to a diverse school I would have sent them to public school or a more diverse private school. I (and my kids) feel like TVT is loosing a bit of its Jewish-ness. We even have students who do not speak English well much less know anything about "our culture."
