The Denver JDS Difference

A place that fosters learning and growth -- both academically and socially. A place that challenges children to be their best ... and supports them along the way. A place where they feel safe, confident and known. For hundreds of children in the greater metro area, Denver JDS is just that place.

Denver JDS students thrive in a rigorous and caring environment. In every grade from K-12, our staff of expert educators provides students with critical building blocks needed to achieve academic excellence. Our school is a community, steeped in the rich teachings of Jewish tradition and virtue. Every day, students find meaning, create friendships, and build character. Here, students enjoy small class sizes and the support of a close-knit community rooted in Jewish values. Our inquiry-based approach integrates rigorous college preparatory academics and Judaic education with an individualized and supportive environment that stimulates intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social success. Denver Jewish Day School goes above and beyond being a place to learn facts and figures. The lessons children garner here last well beyond their test-taking years.

Why a Jewish day school

An education rooted in Jewish values, or Middot, gives students the tools to become not just great scholars, but great people. Our pluralistic environment fosters thoughtful conversations, genuine acts of appreciation and respect for others, and, of course, a commitment to being Jewish. At Denver JDS, students become happy, well adjusted, resilient young people prepared to succeed in life and make the world a better place.


Denver JDS graduates are knowledgable, principled, effective, reflective and driven by a love of learning. Would you be proud to be the parent of young adult who embodies these qualities?
