Paul Penna DJDS provides our children with an education that tells them, shows them and involves them. The words “integrated” and “arts-based” are not fiction. The magic that happens in our classrooms is created by our magnificent teachers and supported by dedicated staff. The school’s commitment to inspiring curiosity, honouring diversity and creating community is alive in everything that happens in our gem of a private school. I believe that creative methodology, rooted in Jewish values, sends our children out into the world as well-prepared, independent, free-thinking young people.
