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.

    Denver Jewish Day School Reviews

    DJDSis the most amazing school, home, family, and community. Going to this school has allowed me to flourish in ways that could never be replicated anywhere else. Secularly, the teachers are so invested in my learning and will always find a time to meet with me to go over stuff and genuinely want me to succeed. In regards to the Judaic program, It has allowed me to discover God and spirituality, without ever telling me what I should believe. The classesmerely push you to challenge your own beliefs and think deeply about the subject so every student can benifit.Most importantly, DJDS has given me my second family I can walk down the hallway everyday and be surrounded by people I can count on. DJDS transformed me from a timid 6th grader who was nervous to ask a teacher to fix my grade. To an ambsious high schooler who frequently meets with her teachers, give speeches in front of the school, and advocates for herself. I cannot thank DJDS enough for this.

    The DJDS community feels like a family in every possible way - teachers and administrators are approachable and happy to help with any difficulties that arise, and students are friendly and welcoming.
    Love the community of the school and how friendly everyone is. The teachers have great relationships with the students and are always offering to help and mentor the students. The small class sizes make it so that every student gets the help and attention they need. Athletics are great because everyone gets to be on a team if they want to. There are lots of great programs for students that are continuing traditions from when the school first began. Overall just an incredible place and a great school.
