Ilan Ramon Day School
In 1995 a Transitional Kindergarten, First Grade, and combination Second/Third Grade class were added, bringing the total number of children to 72. The school was now pushing the limits of its rented premises, the Gateway Four Corners Church in Agoura. As our population grew, our Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten classes moved to our present site in 1997, while Grades 1 through 5 remained at the church site until 1998. Presently, Ilan Ramon Day School serves children ages 2-11 on a beautiful 9 acre site in Agoura. Ilan Ramon Day School was founded as Heschel West in 1994 by a group of four families with the dream of starting a Jewish day school in the Conejo Valley. Under the guidance and support of Shirley Levine z?l, Head of School Heschel Day School, Heschel West opened its doors with 14 kindergarteners. Ilan Ramon Day School is an independent community Jewish pre school and day school devoted to developing understanding and respect for our tradition, and the divergent modes of Jewish belief and practice. Fundamental to our school philosophy is the development of each individual learner to his/her highest potential in both general academics, and Judaic Studies thereby enabling each student to attain a positive Jewish identification, sound self-esteem, and a love for learning. Our school is a community in every sense of the word. We teach by example how to respect peoples’ differences, to care for others, and to help those in need. Self esteem, respect, community service, mitzvoth (good deeds) are every bit as important as the challenging academic studies that fill our students’ days. Ilan Ramon Day School, previously known as Heschel West, is a 2008 National Blue Ribbon award winning school. Our students’ scores are in the top 10\\% of the nation. Preschool at Ilan Ramon Day School: Research indicates that the process of learning is as important as the product. With that in mind, we provide an individualized, experiential and developmental program that emphasizes the development of thinking, problem solving, verbalization of feelings, creative self-expression independence, physical and social development, a love of Judaism, in addition to the mastery of academic skills. Our enriched curriculum integrates language arts, social studies, mathematics, science and Judaic concepts with art, music, and dance. Credentialed, nurturing educators support our youngest learners as they are encouraged to explore, question, and create on this beginning educational and spiritual journey.
