Welcome to the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School!

We know there are few decisions as important as choosing a school for your children.  Parents seek a place where their children will be nurtured through creativity, collaboration and critical thinking. To excel in the 21st century, students need to be challenged and exposed to new ideas, innovative technology and interactive experiences.

It is our goal at CESJDS to create an environment where these things occur naturally on a daily basis. Throughout campus, our students are given opportunities to explore, debate and discuss. In classrooms and hallways, in art studios and science labs, we help students flourish and grow confident in their ability to take on the world.

As a pluralistic community, CESJDS reflects the full spectrum of Judaism. From Reform to Orthodox, we teach children to speak with respect and consideration of each other’s views and practices. Students connect to thousands of years of tradition and culture by focusing on Jewish history and learning the Hebrew language.

At CESJDS, students embark on an educational and spiritual journey, marked by lasting friendships and a celebration of Jewish life. We encourage you to visit the school and begin your child’s journey today.
