Dual Curriculum

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 JDS students in grades K-12 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 middot, or behavior informed by Jewish values, is fostered in all grades. Hebrew language is studied in every grade and a five-week Hebrew/Israel Immersion Program (HIP) in Israel for the 10th grade is a keystone of our Judaic curriculum.
Denver JDS is proud to be one of 5280 Magazines’s Top Private Schools.
NO HEBREW? NO PROBLEM.
An introductory Hebrew language program is available for students who enter the school without a day school background.
