The David Posnack Jewish Day School (Posnack) offers a unique challenging educational experience combining an intensive focused secular education with an innovative exciting Jewish curriculum.
At the Posnack, we are concerned not only with our students' academic accomplishments, but also with their social and character development.
We believe that this can be achieved most successfully when parents and school staff work together in a nurturing environment in order to ensure our children's well being.
