My daughter went to Perelman for 1st grade. There were many problems, the biggest one being that they weren't equiped to deal with a child with ADHD. She would ask to go to the bathroom many times each day & that was a problem for them. Perhaps she was bored and not being challenged, or maybe she really had to go... Anyway, she didn't learn anything new and different. Public school has given her a wonderful academic education as she's now entering 5th grade and her Hebrew School as well as Camp Ramah has kept her Jewish education intact as she is doing excellent in her studies.
