Quality of Education for all Children
Temple Beth Am Day School strives to maintain a quality of education for all our students, providing the best learning experience for children while meeting and exceeding national standards of quality.
Accreditation is a voluntary process of self-regulation and peer review adopted by the educational community. It is a highly prized designation which has to be earned by the accredited schools. Accreditation assures families that a school has met certain minimum standards during a thorough review by a body of its peers.
The Early Childhood program adheres to guidelines established by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This prestigious national organization in the area of early childhood learning provides information that links educational practices to current educational research. Having achieved NAEYC accreditation and the Florida Gold Seal of Excellence, our curriculum and classrooms reflect these developmentally appropriate guidelines. Approximately 7% of the nation's early childhood programs maintain this designation. Florida Department of Children and Families: C11MD0555
The Elementary School is accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS), Florida Kindergarten Council (FKC), Association of Independent Schools of Florida (AISF) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). Affiliated schools offer small class groupings, flexible programs and helpful teacher-pupil ratios.
