Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School

At Bernard Zell, we teach our students to embrace the awesome wonder of life. And run with it. Our classrooms create an exhilarating challenge of academic study and cultural immersion that changes the game for elementary school. Children begin their journey in our newly-reimagined Nursery classroom where we draw on young children’s natural curiosity as a compass for classroom learning. Inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy, an exploration of rocket ships can lead to a thoughtful discussion of adventure stories and – with the careful guidance of our teachers – land in the life cycle of butterflies.

Beyond academics, Bernard Zell is filled with opportunities for students of all ages to explore their passions, test the waters and just have fun. From athletics to the arts, we understand that each activity develops something inside our students that they will take with them beyond graduation: confidence, leadership, self esteem, collaboration, teamwork and lifelong memories.

With our small class size, (6:1 teacher student ratio, the lowest in the city) our students feel at home. It allows us to set the expectation very high. But our encouragement to exceed them is even higher. Call today to schedule a tour and learn more! Expanded tuition assistance is now available.
