Educate and Implement
As a school, we stay curious about what’s possible and fuel a proactive approach ahead of tomorrow’s needs and learning trends. But in order to know where we’re headed, it’s important to understand why we’re going down this path. The Pardes mission is a charge to provide a dynamic secular and Judaic education that is relevant for today’s learners in anticipation of tomorrow’s realities. To continue offering an ideal learning experience for your child, our model for education must adapt and adopt proven, relevant innovation.
In Phase 2 of the Pardes Innovation Initiative, we’re working to communicate what those changes look like, all the way down to what is happening in the classroom. You won’t just hear words like Project-Based Learning, Responsive Classroom, or scaffolding — you’ll see how they impact your child’s learning when put in action.
To support our vision and where we are headed, we have to do more than just change our thinking — we have to change our environments. We have redesigned existing classroom space with new furniture to reflect spaces that can support a variety of learning activities, student groups, and technologies. We are looking to the future for new opportunities to expand and enhance our focus on innovation in teaching and learning as we deliver a world-class, 21st-century learning experience. These spaces will enable us to incorporate the arts and innovation in creative ways.
