Why Families Choose Pardes

Multi-sensory exploration.

Through Project Based Learning and STEAM integration, Pardes students are mastering content alongside important skills of communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking. Just ask our first graders — they engage in a shuk (market) project that starts with creating a business plan with their homeroom teacher, then designing their market booths in our Makerspace, creating goods in art class to sell in their booths, and incorporating Hebrew and Jewish studies as they learn about Israeli shuk concepts.

Incorporating social emotional learning

Skills such as self-discipline, patience, empathy, and social awareness are incredibly important for success in any endeavor. Through our Responsive Classroom model and classes centered around social-emotional skills, Pardes teachers take a holistic approach to learning, helping to ensure students have the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values they need to move through life with confidence.
