Head of School's Welcome


Shalom School is the Sacramento region’s only Jewish Day School and offers a nurturing environment that fosters the social, emotional, academic, and spiritual development of each of our children.  We serve children from two years old through sixth grade and provide:

  • highly skilled and invested staff members committed to fostering the growth of each child
  • a strong curriculum with rigorous yet age-appropriate goals, multi-sensory and experiential opportunities, and rich interdisciplinary connections
  • a program that teaches values by example and helps nurture students on a path to meaningful spiritual development grounded in Jewish values and traditions
  • dual-language instruction from the earliest years to build the learning pathways that only early second language exposure can provide
  • an emphasis on problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration that creates and fosters a lifelong love of learning
  • a diverse and vibrant student and parent community marked by both shared values and appreciation of difference
  • focus on meeting each individual child's needs

We are accredited by NAEYC, the National Association for the Education of Young Children, and WASC, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.  From the preschool program through sixth grade, our focus is on nurturing the whole child and providing the support and challenge each individual needs to grow and reach his or her highest potential.  Please explore our website, and welcome to our community!
