Word from a Parent:
“After investigating many options, my wife and I chose Ganeinu and we are extremely grateful to have made that choice. The class sizes, high level of education, beautiful facilities, and enrichment opportunities are superior. The school is marked by an open and creative environment that encourages kids to think outside the box, and become independent and innovative thinkers. The staff have a partnership with parents that keeps us part of our children’s progress and classroom happenings. My kids love the school so much, they look forward to going even during holidays. Most importantly – and the thing that touches us the most – is that beyond the academic excellence, the school is our family in China. It’s a place filled with warmth, caring, and love – a place where we and our kids have always felt welcome and like we belong.”
– David Galil (Israel), father of Nami (Grade 7), Itamar (Grade 5) and Michael (kindergarten)
