Wornick is more than a school. Wornick is a place that encourages children to thrive, grow, and give back, a place where families connect and care, a place where teachers do so much more than just teach. Wornick is a community -- a place that creates a sense of belonging, a place one is always happy to come back to, part of who we are. Maia T., Current Parent
As an alumni parent, I've seen our Wornick graduates and their friends go onto high school and enjoy great success. Not only academically, but as well-rounded kids with a strong sense of self, of right and wrong, of how to be a good person in the world, how to get along with others -- how to achieve success in life. David S., Alumni Parent
At Wornick, we were accepted and loved as individuals. We brought ourselves to school each day and our teachers invested in us, embraced us, loved us for our differences and the unique perspective our much smaller selves brought to the classroom. Sydney C., Class of 2002
We love being a part of Wornick, not only because of the great teachers and students, but because it’s amazing to send our child to a school that is guided by Jewish values, teachings and the importance of connected community.Rabbi Corey and Jenny Helfand, Current Parents
We are raising intelligent, compassionate and motivated young people who will mature into outstanding members of our Jewish and secular communities Rabbi Dennis Eisner, Senior Rabbi at Peninsula Temple Beth El and Alumnae Wornick Parent
