“We never thought a private Jewish day school education was even an option, until Pardes showed us how to make it a reality. As parents of a first grader, we are amazed by the Pardes commitment and dedication to students. The teachers have challenged our daughter in the greatest of ways, ways that she is completely unaware of. Without a doubt, we made the right choice for our daughter, our family, and our peace of mind.” – Sarah and Joshua Katz
