The Rush Family
What do you love most about Pardes?

Why did you choose Pardes for your child?

In what ways have you seen your child grow and develop as a result of their experience at Pardes?
As a result of our child’s experience at Pardes, we have seen him grow and develop into a confident, happy and proud Jewish child.
Describe how your child benefits from the secular academic classes, learning the Hebrew language and Jewish studies at Pardes?
Our child benefits from the secular and Jewish Studies classes by learning balance between the two and how they are intertwined into his daily life. Pardes offers innovative and inspiring lessons that keep our child interested and excited to learn. The secular studies teach and encourage students to be independent, creative, engaging, problem-solvers. By incorporating technology, along with traditional and hands-on-learning, it gives students many opportunities to take in the lessons they are being taught. The Hebrew program is outstanding and has not only taught our child to speak, read and write a foreign language; but connect with his Jewish heritage on another level.
What would you say to a prospective family who is considering Pardes for their child?
Pardes is a wonderful environment for any child. They offer a great community with many opportunities to become involved for parents and children. The teachers are excellent, dedicated and caring. The class sizes are small and allow each child to grow and develop into unique individuals. The School as a whole is always focused on being the best it can be.
Is there anything else you would like to share about your family’s experience at Pardes?
