“We are very pleased to be able to offer prospective families the opportunity to come to our campus and see first-hand the amazing things going on in every grade,” Head of School Peter Gordon said in a prepared statement.

“From our project-based learning, to our collaborative, child-centered approach, to our commitment to academic excellence, Pardes provides a world-class Jewish Day School education.”

Pardes is a private, independent school and a 21st Century Learning institution serving students in Kindergarten through eighth grade.

The school’s academics combines a rigorous secular program featuring innovative practices, design thinking and project-based learning with a Jewish Studies program designed to ignite students’ curiosity while finding meaningful ways to bring Judaism into contemporary life.

The result is motivated students who, upon graduation, are accepted into top Phoenix high schools.

At Pardes, students are provided the personalized attention they need to develop the skills and knowledge to flourish as mature, well-rounded confident and academically prepared young adults, according to a press release.
