The Perelman Difference

At Perelman, we teach our kids to think differently and encourage them to interpret, reason and see the world across multiple subjects. We offer unmatched academics supported by cutting edge technology, engaging activities and exceptional teachers who nurture and challenge every child. 

List of 6 items.

  • Academic Excellence

    At Perelman, we aim for the highest standards of excellence. Our students experience an outstanding general and Jewish studies curriculum that helps them develop into secure, well-rounded individuals. We foster a love of learning, intellectual inquiry and critical thinking that challenges and empowers students to seek knowledge with confidence and enthusiasm.
  • Jewish Literacy and Pride

    In an atmosphere rich with Jewish and American culture, we inspire children to understand, embrace, and take pride in the knowledge, faith and values of their own heritage while respecting diverse cultures, lifestyles and beliefs. Our core Jewish values include: the centrality of modern Israel; Hebrew as a living language; devotion to the ideal of Klal Yisrael (shared community and destiny); the importance of studying Torah; and the centrality of halakha (Jewish law). Our students thrive in an atmosphere that resonates with joy and meaning.
  • Value-Based and Child-Centered

    We encourage children to understand ethics, morals and values through a Jewish lens. Our program is responsive to the learning style and the social, emotional and intellectual development of each student.
  • Dual Language Curriculum

    A growing body of research supports the powerful impact of learning two languages on a child’s cognitive development, performance and ability to solve problems. This approach to learning in two languages across the subjects nurtures and cultivates a student’s ability to reason, think creatively and relate to the world with flexibility and open-mindedness.

  • Social Responsibility

    At Perelman, the curriculum reflects our mandate to help children grow into caring adults who truly embrace and understand their obligation to Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. Social responsibility is a continuous and powerful part of everything we do.
  • Preparation for Success

    Perelman graduates are exceptionally well prepared for success in college, careers and community leadership. They are confident, competent, literate young people who experience themselves as prime shapers of the Jewish future.
That’s the Perelman difference. A superior independent school education, infused with ethics, values, acceptance and integrity. All in two languages.
