“I really feel knowledgeable when I go out into the larger world and feel like I have a voice for my Jewish identity. JDS has allowed me to form that identity and now I can take that experience into a new setting, and a new place where I will meet new people.”

"We chose JDS because we were looking to continue our kids’ Jewish education and not compromise on their secular education. What we found was not only did we not compromise but we were blown away by the quality of the secular education here."

“It’s a huge point of pride to know that I was part of those formative years [for my students]. Now they’re growing up and we see them doing great things in the School, and just know they’re going to do amazing things outside of the School with their education.”

“This school is a mensch factory. It sets kids up for success to find their passion, and follow it, while learning to be a good Jew and a good human being.”

"It’s just so different than public school, just a breath of fresh air. [The School] is just something really different and not what I was used to but in the best way possible. We have nine periods here. That’s just a lot of opportunity."
