My second grader actually came home with an end of the year 2nd grade review math packet that included test prep problems for the PSLE, which is the national Singapore Primary School Leaving Exam administered to all sixth graders!

Love Brandeis! The head of the SF campus (started in 2008?) effected several changes to both the curriculum and staff, making an already wonderful school even stronger. My son has had amazing teachers who encourage students to think critically, participate actively, celebrate their own personal strengths ...  Read more

I have learned so much at this school. Everyone is kind, and gives so much to the community. I really enjoy going to this school and all my years at this school have been a blast.

There is nothing I don't love about this incredible San Francisco independent school. I love the teachers: all three of my daughters' classroom teachers, plus all of the specialists (art, music, library, P.E.). I love the Jewish values and celebrations, and the Hebrew language. I love the community. ...  Read more

I'm a staff member at BHDS, and I have been impressed by this school since the first day I set foot in its doors. I have never before seen such a dedicated community of parents, teachers, and administrators working together. Through their efforts, they have created an institution that stands for more ...  Read more
