Maximizing Each Child’s Potential

At Pardes, we’ve designed a student experience and environment that fosters a love of learning, an insatiable curiosity, and a desire to creatively problem solve. Through a focus on Project Based Learning, our Responsive Classroom model, an emphasis on STEAM, and our Innovation Initiative, students in kindergarten through eighth grade are able to better engage with a challenging curriculum as they learn by doing, all while improving their critical thinking skills, collaboration, communication, and empathy. Student confidence is strengthened while interests are explored through athletics, performing arts, and leadership roles in community service projects, Student Council, Chief Science Officer and Student Ambassadors. Our new flexible seating accommodates different learning styles and gives students the autonomy to choose what works best for them.

Jewish Life and Learning

Jewish life at Pardes allows students to explore their heritage, values, and traditions as they develop their personal Jewish identity. Hebrew and Jewish studies classes begin in kindergarten and continue through eighth grade. Rituals and traditions such as Tefillah, Parashat Hashavua, and Kabbalat Shabbat, as well as holiday celebrations and Mitzvah Days helping others, are incorporated into the student experience.

Get to Know the Pardes Community

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to their students and their mastery and comprehension of content. As lifelong learners themselves, Pardes educators are always researching and adjusting curricula. Our Administrative Team leads Pardes in its day-to-day operations as well as works toward achieving long-term goals. The members of our Board of Directors are stewards of our mission and values, as well as of the school’s financial and overall well-being.
