I have been a part of the Adat Ari El community for the last 10 years. My children were at the ECC (3 kids) from the age of 2 and it was a wonderful and nurturing experience. I made some of my closest friends at Adat, people that I am still in daily contact with, people that will always be a part of our lives and I am very grateful for that. My kids continued onto the Adat Ari El Day School for elementary. I really love the Day School, it is academically rigorous while still providing support and understanding when your child is struggling. The dual program of secular and Judaism studies is really wonderful, my kids love the Jewish studies and especially the celebration of shabbat and festivals. The best thing about the school is that it's probably the only true progressive Jewish Day School out there. This progressive curriculum is certainly not at the expense of their academics. The curriculum has been so thoughtfully developed to engage the learners in interactive projects that they incorporate a multi-disciplinary approach where projects often include components of math, science, engineering and art. The Zebrack Design Lab which is a cutting edge STEAM lab is my kids favorite place; this is the hub where all the project based learning takes place and it is being incorporated into the curriculum in a very relevant and engaging way. I wish I could have learned this way at school. It's a very nurturing, welcoming and warm environment with a very high teacher/student ratio and where all of the teaching staff and admin staff know your kids so well. I am very grateful that I am at Adat and I highly recommend the school. Also, kids get into great middle schools and are very well prepared for any school from the Walter Reed IHP to Harvard Westlake.

You would think it would be easier to get your child into an elementary or primary school than into a prep school. But in fact it is almost as complicated.
