Welcome to B'nai Shalom!
Our school has been rooted in the Greensboro community since 1970. Jewish values and tradition, love of Israel and Hebrew language animate all aspects of the curriculum. Students experience a vibrant Jewish community that learns and celebrates together in rich and creative ways.
Every day our students discover, uncover and explore the world around them with the guidance of our talented and dedicated teachers. Our teachers are committed to ongoing growth and innovation in student learning.
I look forward to meeting you and learning about your hopes and dreams for your child’s educational journey.
Head of School
The B'nai Shalom Day School was founded in 1970. Our mission is to provide a caring, supportive school community in which students achieve academic excellence in a dual curriculum that inspires each student to develop his/her fullest potential as an inquisitive learner, critical thinker, and future Jewish leader.
Infant to 8th Grade
PS 1/2 - Pre-Kindergarten
Kindergarten - 4th Grade
5th - 8th Grade
With experiential learning at its core, B’nai Shalom not only provides students with an academically challenging and rich curriculum, but also facilitates the building character, values, and kindness. BSDS helps students grow through experiences and through learning that failure is okay and by building leadership skills and applying those skills to a child’s day-to-day activities. Students are taught advocacy skills and how to advocate for what’s right and also learn about being active community members. All of these philosophies build character, values, and kindness. The very definition of a mensch.
Each student in grades K-8 will create a cap stone project based on a central theme. Students will also be given more opportunities for learning beyond the classroom which will include field trips and service learning projects.
