Our Mission

Academic excellence is at the core of our mission at Park East, a private Jewish day school in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side that welcomes children from age two through the eighth grade.

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. This dual curriculum 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.
