From Denver Jewish Day School

At Denver Jewish Day School — the Rocky Mountain region’s only K-12 community 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. We don’t think you should have to choose from giving students powerful Jewish roots, a strong Jewish community of support, and extraordinary academics that empower them to lead and change the world. So, we don’t ever say you have to choose one thing or the other. We believe in more. More ways to express Judaism. More sense of community. More ways to think, explore, and discover.
