Social and Emotional Wellness

Take care of yourself and take care of your soul.
— Deuteronomy 4:9

 

Social and emotional well-being have a close correlation with academic success.

Studies have shown that social and emotional competence are as critical to college and workplace success as academic skills. At Denver Jewish Day School, our whole-child approach to education includes social and emotional learning. Our counselors can be found in the classroom, engaging with a small group of students, or meeting one-on-one with students of all ages. We provide services for all students in K-12.
