We are so happy with the decision we made sending our son to Pardes and can’t wait for our daughter to attend there as well.  We have found the school so warm and welcoming with a genuine concern for the children and their families.  The teachers are very interactive and involved in our children’s success.  We are never left in the dark when it comes to what our son is doing in the classroom plus we appreciate the Jewish aspect of his education.  Our son absolutely loves his school, teachers and the friends he has made.  We are looking forward to many years at Pardes.                                                                                                                     – Arlene and Jason Israel

Dear Prospective Family,

Thank you for your interest in Pardes Jewish Day School. As Director of Admissions and Marketing, as well as a parent of a current Pardes student and a Pardes graduate, I am excited that you are considering this best of both worlds — a challenging secular academic program coupled with a strong foundation in the heritage and culture of Judaism.

The Pardes faculty and staff take great pride in the in-depth discussing, questioning and analyzing taking place daily in every classroom. Dedicated and experienced teachers challenge students to become critical readers, writers and thinkers while applying best practices of differentiated learning in all areas of study. Additionally, Pardes students have the wonderful benefit of exploring their learning through both a secular and Jewish lens. Students at all grade levels are inspired to embrace the Jewish values and heritage that surround them on a daily basis enabling them to develop a true depth of character as to how they treat peers and other people in the world.

The best way to begin the admissions process is to call the school to arrange a tour. Individual campus tours of Pardes include time in classrooms and are available by appointment throughout the year. Providing individual attention to each student and family is a hallmark of Pardes. I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your family and to share the benefits of a Pardes education.
