Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School
Gideon Hausner Jewish Day School is an independent non-profit private school for children in kindergarten through eighth grade in Palo Alto, CA. Founded in 1990, we are committed to promoting academic excellence, community responsibility, and vibrant Jewish living. As a community day school, Hausner serves families from a wide range of Jewish backgrounds and religious practices. Enrollment is growing, and currently stands at 400 students.
We are committed to promoting academic excellence and a lifelong love of learning by combining an outstanding general education with meaningful Jewish studies. The academic excellence of our program is built on rigorous standards, exceptional faculty, and low student to teacher ratios.
The joy of learning – and of belonging – is everywhere. Students are eager to come to school in the morning. Parents cluster in the courtyard and help in the classroom. Students are encouraged to approach their learning passionately and critically so that they may develop strong voices and acquire tools for independent thinking.
We serve the entire community and are not affiliated with any Jewish denomination.
