Welcome to Weizmann Day School

Weizmann Day School is a non-profit, independent, co-educational community Jewish school established in 1983.  We welcome students and families from an array of Jewish, interfaith and diverse backgrounds.

Our campus is located in Pasadena, near the beautiful Eaton Canyon nature preserve.  We offer Kindergarten through eighth grades and are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the BJE: Builders of Jewish Education. 

Weizmann graduates transition seamlessly to the area's leading private secondary and high schools including Flintridge Preperatory, Pasadena Polytechnic, Westridge and Waverly as well as honors and gifted programs at local public schools.  Our alumni have gone on to attend selective universities including UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley, Tulane, Emerson, Harvard, Columbia and NYU.
