    Like another reviewer said there are better Jewish day schools in the Philadelphia like Abrams Hebrew Academy. My child went to Perelman but I switched because Abrams was that much better.

    This school is a great school. The student to teacher ratio is very low which is good. Very good teachers. Bi-lingual curriculum. Teaches Jewish believes very well.

    Saligman instilled in me a dedication to learning and exploration as well as a commitment to continue questioning my teachers my peers and myself. As a member of the first graduating class I learned that I have a voice that is worth listening to and I am a person worth communicating with. For those three years I am eternally grateful.

    I am a student at Saligman Middle School and I have been going to Perelman Jewish Day School since I was in kindergarden. It is a great school that teaches not only about Jeiwsh life prayers laws and other things but it also teaches the required general studies classes. I have an excellent math class. The teachers know full well how to teach a class and when somebody gets out of line they get written up.
