VTT is more than a school. It is a place that hums with activity, opportunity and learning. It is a place where students develop academically, socially, ethically, athletically and artistically. It is where friends become family and families become community. VTT is where students will have joyful Jewish experiences to set the blueprint for a meaningful life.
The school day can begin as early as 7:30 a.m. when athletic teams (soccer, volleyball, basketball, flag football, track and climbing) and the various VTT bands (junior, senior, advanced and combined) arrive for practice. By 8:00 a.m., students as young as two and a half years begin to arrive anticipating another fun-filled day of learning and exploration.
A typical school day may include riveting guest speakers, curriculum-connected field trips, theme-oriented assemblies, Jewish holiday celebrations, non-uniform days to support various charitable activities, spirit days, lunch time activities such as choir, Israeli dance and intramural athletics, and students assuming leadership roles to benefit the school community.
Although classes dismiss at 3:20 p.m., students can spend time in our learning commons until 4:30 p.m. Alternatively, parents can enroll them in approximately 16 different after school programs that run from Monday to Thursday. Or parents may elect to register for the school bus that transports students to the JCC every day after school for after school care and additional extra curricular activities.
Our PAC (Parent Action Chavurah) closely works with the VTT leadership team to provide opportunities for families to connect outside of school hours. These parent volunteers organize family dances, family Shabbat picnics, ice skating gatherings, sports outings, and after school movie screenings to build community among our diverse parent body.
VTT is far beyond what is considered a typical school. This is a place where lifelong friendships among students and families are created.
