“Our home away from home for the past 12 years. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to raise my children. Excellent school, wonderful teachers.”
— Christina S. F.
“We chose to send our girls to PJA to instill a strong sense of Judaism as well as an education that is not just about the math, reading, writing and science but about values, gimilut hasidim/acts of kindness, and community. I love that I can tell my girls that I went to the same school as they do (sort of!).”
— Sarah O. S.
“Best decision we ever made for our daughter! PJA is a parent’s dream: thoughtful and deeply committed teachers, top level facilities and academics, robust sports and arts programs, beaucoup community and extra-curricular on-site activities, and a loving and inclusive community of families. Of course this means that it’s also a child’s dream and the proof is in my daughter’s attitude toward school: she is excited to go every day! I also think they do a great job infusing Jewish ideals and values into their education in an egalitarian way.”
