 “Your students are so nice!”

That’s what Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School principals and faculty members hear time and again from their colleagues at other schools about the BT students. That kind of niceness is the result of Beth Tfiloh’s mission to grow Jewish citizens who are ready to face the world with poise, knowledge, and humanity.

Our students can trace the roots of this education back to lessons they learned in BT’s PreSchool and Lower School. BT’s Lower School places the highest importance on imbuing classrooms with a spirit of derech eretz — the code of proper behavior that binds us to each other as human beings and as Jews.

Beth Tfiloh Dahan Community School is proud to unveil a new school-wide STEM initiative, which encompasses three dimensions: building a STEM mindset, setting 21st century student learning goals, and implementing the STEM Learning Action Plan.

Mr. Vince Bonina, Beth Tfiloh’s newly-appointed Director of STEM Education, explains, “As our understanding of student learning evolves and as the skills needed to participate in business and industry change, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics stand out as increasingly more relevant.” The STEM mindset is a 21st century, holistic educational approach that represents a shift from compartmentalized subjects to interdisciplinary study.

“Every single division – from PreSchool through High School – has been encouraged and supported to enhance STEM and 21st century learning integration in their curricula,” said Beth Tfiloh Director of Education Dr. Zipora Schorr.
