Welcome to the Lower Division!
Denver Jewish Day School students are curious, joyful, and enthusiastic learners — respected and celebrated for the unique contribution they bring to their class and to our school. Our teachers, administrators, and staff take the time to get to know each and every one of our students. Differentiated instruction and inquiry-based learning ensure that our students are met at their appropriate instructional level, and they are encouraged to explore questions and learning that ignite their curiosity. Our strong focus on our school’s Divrei Chaim (Words to Live By or core values) as well as our Helping Hands service learning program instill respect, kindness, and a sense of efficacy in even our very youngest students.
Our school community includes students, parents, and educators who come together from different backgrounds and Judaic observance to share in the goal of creating and fostering an inclusive and pluralistic school community in which our children grow and thrive as learners and people.
I welcome you to explore this warm and wonderful learning community — our mishpachah (family) — in which all of our students are encouraged to reach their greatest potential.
