Outstanding general studies program complemented by a robust Hebrew language/Jewish studies curriculum. Early mastery of a second language sharpens our students’ ability to solve problems, focus attention and be creative. At Perelman, we educate the whole child, enveloping social and emotional intelligence in an environment that encourages students to pursue their own paths by giving them the skills they need – and by teaching them how to find meaning in what they do.
