From Community Day School

Community Day School is a nurturing, academically excellent Jewish day school for the 21st century. From early childhood through middle school, we inspire our students to love learning through innovative teaching methods and hands-on discovery. CDS is a welcoming community where Pittsburgh families who span the spectrum of Jewish belief and practice can learn and connect along with their children. As our students grow in knowledge from preschool through 8th grade, they grow as people—finding their passions, embracing their Jewish identities, and preparing for successful and meaningful lives.

    I have 2 children at Community Day School. I've been a parent there for 4 years. Our experience has been stellar. My children are academically challenged in a nurturing setting. My daughter once articulated to me that one reason she enjoys school is because she gets to use her imagination there. I was so thrilled to hear that she can tap into her imagination in a rigorous academic setting! My son struggles more socially and emotionally. CDS has been a wonderful partner to us with this. CDS's smaller class sizes, caring teachers, engaged administration, and the growth mindset philosophy have led our son to many successes. My husband and I feel a huge amount of gratitude to CDS for all this and more that it offers our children. We also feel a great deal of trust in the CDS administration based on what we've seen in its ability to curate curriculum, experiences, and community. At CDS, we feel we have a strong partner in raising our children to become adults we are proud of.

    Community Day School is more than just an academically stellar institution...it is a place where kids' imaginations are fostered and their values are developed. My kids are receiving an education that has a moral compass, and this will allow my kids to become leaders in whatever they choose. But most importantly, CDS is a family, and for that we are grateful always.
    I couldn't have chosen a better partner in helping me to raise my two daughters than Community Day School. Not only are they academically prepared for high school and beyond, thanks to CDS, they have the self-confidence, compassion, and leadership skills to make a positive difference in the world.
