Milwaukee Jewish Day School is a vibrant, pluralistic learning community committed to 21st century learning. We inspire our students to own their learning and live their Judaism in a meaningful way through a Jewish journey that starts in junior kindergarten and culminates in eighth grade.

We inspire students to:

  • Develop an enriched Jewish identity through a multidisciplinary curriculum, where they can explore, debate and embrace Jewish life and learning
  • Become a community of Jewish learners, leaders and mensches
  • Act as contributing, thoughtful and respectful members of the community

MJDS’s commitment to innovation and 21st century learning is demonstrated through a continued focus on student-owned learning, an Innovation Hub that includes an Ideation Studio, Engineering Lab and MakerSpace and a year-round professional development cycle for our talented staff.

Beyond multiple fine arts and athletic options, students have the opportunity to pursue their passions in the classrooms and through MJDS signature courses that match individual interests while developing skills they will need to succeed in high school, college and in an ever-changing world.
