Beyond the Classroom

More Than a Typical School Day

Learning doesn't stop after the class schedule ends; our ample offerings afterschool ensure that your child can explore even more educational offerings. From arts and athletics to cooking and karate as well as a variety of other courses and afterschool care opportunities, there's something exciting for your child to explore. 

Music and art expand your child’s imaginative and expressive range. Starting in preschool, our students sing in class every day. Beginning in Lower School, your child can play in our renowned 60-member orchestra. At the same time, students experiment with a rich assortment of visual media, including film and 3-D modeling, and our students’ vibrant artwork fills our classrooms, hallways, and hearts with delight.
 
Our athletic program combines healthy competition with a strong sense of teamwork. In PE classes, and on an array of competitive teams, your child builds physical ability and courage, along with teamwork skills that transfer to classes and life in general. Here, playing to win goes hand-in-hand with having fun and feeling good—ensuring your child loves being active throughout life.


Orchestra

Our orchestra is comprised of beginning, advanced and intermediate players, many of whom never picked up an instrument before school orchestra. They play several gigs a year, including at local Jewish events and school assemblies: for a recent assembly they learned a Mozart symphony, Beethoven, an original composition by Brown and Jewish melodies. 

Although Lainer School takes music seriously, it’s that willingness to let kids be kids that draws so many students more deeply into music study.

Athletics

The physical education program at Alice and Nahum Lainer School stresses the importance of sportsmanship and fair play. Although a competitive effort is encouraged, respect between players, adherence to the rules and the basic joy of play and participation are emphasized. The physical education department is committed to providing an active and varied physical exercise program, which supports the physical, social and emotional growth of every student. Our students are encouraged to develop physical interests, which will help them maintain a healthy body throughout their lifetimes.

Students in 5th - 8th grades have the opportunity to participate in after-school league sports at various levels of play and difficulty. Our teams compete against schools in the San Fernando Valley Private School League, and we take pride in our teams’ performance. Our goal is to make our students’ athletic experience as rewarding and enjoyable as possible. Each team holds tryouts prior to the beginning of each sports season. Players must commit to attending practices and games on a regular basis.
