Pursue Excellence at Kadima Day School
Jewish education gives students an edge over public and private school students, research indicates. There are a number of factors that suggest that academic preparation is indeed a great strength of Jewish day schools:
* First, on account of the dual curriculum of Jewish and general academic studies, the school day is typically longer, building work ethic, organizational skills and stamina.
* Second, bilingualism confers upon students a known academic advantage.
* Finally, Jewish studies subjects are themselves highly academic in content and skill demands.
