Specials, Technology & Electives

Denver Jewish Day School (Denver JDS) students are exposed to a wide variety of educational experiences.

In the Lower School Division, students enjoy “specials” every week; art, music, computers, physical education and library are all part of the regular curriculum at Denver JDS and give our students a variety of outlets to express themselves throughout the day. In P.E., students are introduced to the fundamentals of baseball, football, basketball, soccer, lacrosse and other sports. The Rubenstein Family Library holds more than 16,000 volumes and in the Pluss, Rosenbaum Computer Lab students learn how to input, access, and retrieve information from computers and electronic databases.

In the Upper School Division, students have a personal e-mail address, and teachers have home pages to keep students informed of classroom and homework activities. Using PowerSchool®, our Upper School teachers can track students’ assignments and grades online. Parents can login to the parent portal to check PowerSchool for their children’s average grades and assignment status at any point throughout the school year.  SMARTboards that combine the benefits of a computer-designed presentation with the flexibility and immediacy of a traditional white board have been implemented at both the Lower and Upper School.
