Here are a few success stories from parents of Kadima.
"Kadima is providing them with the tools, environment and encouragement"
"Our children are not just acquiring the excellent academics we would expect of any private day school; that’s a given. Kadima is providing them with the tools, environment and encouragement to develop into independent, well-rounded, individual people...
The education at Kadima isn’t just academic; it’s social and spiritual as well. My childhood Rabbi used to correct us by saying “not WHAT do you want to be when you grow up, WHO do you want to be when you grow up?” Kadima lives and breathes this distinction. We can’t wait to see “who” are children will grow up to be (with Kadima’s help.)”

"What I love about Kadima are the people..."
“What I love about Kadima are the people who work there. From the teachers to the administrative staff to the maintenance crew, it doesn’t seem like it’s ‘just’ a job to any one of them. They are dedicated to making Kadima a great place for students, parents and each other.
They are caring and hard-working individuals who give so much of their time and themselves to the children and the school.
I am constantly being thanked for my volunteering and helping my children with their studies–and these are MY children I’m helping! Yet, they are always grateful for my efforts as if they have as much invested in my children and Kadima as I do. On Thanksgiving we all went around the table and said what we are thankful for. Most of us offered the usual gratitude for family, good health and good friends. But the first thing out of our son’s mouth was that he was thankful for Kadima and being able to go there! Needless to say, even though the school outranked my husband and me, we were very pleased he appreciates Kadima so much.”

"She is becoming deeply connected with her Jewish roots..."
“Our daughter started 6th grade at Kadima in the fall of 2017. We had moved her from a Waldorf-inspired school and had a gut-feeling that the "big-public-middle-school-experience" was not going to be the ideal fit for her. She is a creative thinker who learns best when she is engaged in classroom discussions and is inspired by the adults who surround her.
Kadima offers just that.
Small class sizes, thought-provoking discussions in Judaic studies and spiritual-emotional growth through Tefilah and an overall integrated curriculum that connects our past to our present and future.
It didn't take long for that Kadima spirit to become part of her. Not only is she reciting the Shabbat blessings with an Israeli accent (after only minimal Jewish education prior to joining Kadima) but she is becoming deeply connected with her Jewish roots while also being engaged in a strong secular, academic curriculum. If you asked her, the best part about Kadima is the delicious hot lunch program and, first and foremost, all the friendships she has formed with the girls in her class.”
