Welcome from the Head of School/CEO

Welcome to Denver Jewish Day School (Denver JDS)!

Thank you for taking the time to explore our wonderful school. I invite you, if you have not already done so, to take a personal tour of Denver JDS. At that time, you will see the faces of our remarkable students – children and young adults who amaze and inspire me each and every day.

You’ll also see firsthand how our high-quality faculty are dedicated to academic excellence, love of learning and community building. And the JDS family is unique; it promotes diversity of opinion, tolerance for others and an unmatched spirit of community.

These elements of a Denver JDS education are all critical to the unique K-12 continuum that our school offers. In each grade, Denver JDS leverages Jewish learning skills, values, wisdom and tradition to enhance academic achievement and foster success in college and life. We build on these lessons year after year, so that by the time our students graduate 12th grade, they’ve truly received the full spectrum and benefit of an integrated, dual curriculum.

Please know that my door is open, and I always welcome the opportunity to talk about the incredible benefits of a Denver JDS education.
