Welcome to Denver Jewish Day School
At Denver Jewish Day School, academic excellence goes hand-in-hand with inquiry-based pluralistic Jewish education. Our K-12 curriculum combines challenging college preparatory classes, powerful Judaic values, and an individualized and supportive environment that stimulates intellectual, spiritual, physical and social success. Our Divrei Chaim (Words to Live By) and middot (Jewish values) serve as the foundation for our entire Denver JDS community, including students, parents, and faculty.

Among the High School sports approved falling under 'Season B' (Ice hockey, skiing, girls swimming, wrestling, basketball, and competitive spirit), basketball was the big news for many Denver Jewish Day School students and coaches, and many other 1A schools across Colorado. In addition to basketball players, Denver JDS Junior, Carter Bergman, will now be able to compete in his 2021 wrestling season on the George Washington High School Varsity Wrestling team.
Denver JDS’s new neighbor, Modena Cherry Creek (www.modenacherrycreek.com) is opening in early September.
Denver JDS has been granted the opportunity to work on the third year of Live On | LIFE & LEGACY. This partnership between Rose Community Foundation and the Harold Grinspoon Foundation provides training, support, and incentives in order to promote a culture of legacy giving and endowment building that will strengthen Denver JDS for future generations.
