About Park East

In an environment that is collaborative rather than competitive, we encourage students to do their personal best as they pursue a dual curriculum of General and Jewish Studies that begins in early childhood and builds gradually and with increasing rigor to the lower and middle school years. At Park East students not only learn how to learn—they develop a love of learning that carries them forward in their academic careers and wherever their journey takes them in life. Read more…
