Academics (grades 6-8)
And you shall teach [these words] diligently to your children.
— Deuteronomy 6:7
Extraordinary education is more than just a part of our tagline;
it’s at the core of our existence.
Academic excellence goes far beyond having a high grade point average. Denver Jewish Day School students are inspired to think deeply, work collaboratively, listen thoughtfully, and act responsibly. Literature circles, science experiments, project based learning, lively classroom discussions, and Judaic values make up the daily experience here. Through active, hands-on learning with their peers, students gain an understanding of the world around them and the impact they can have.
Our pluralistic Judaic program inspires learners to develop a positive relationship with Israel, Torah, and the Jewish people. A focus on our school’s Divrei Chaim (or Words to Live By) is fostered in all grades and all classes. Hebrew language is studied in every grade as well, and a six-week Hebrew Immersion Program (HIP) in Israel for the 10th grade is a keystone of our Hebrew program.
