Welcome from Head of School

Leading, Succeeding and Engaging


Welcome to MJDS! You are entering a learning community where inspiring wonder is the basis for lifelong learning. 

Our students grow together by blending their empathy, curiosity and determination to form their intellect and develop as thoughtful and caring people. Our teachers model lifelong learning and a true growth mindset through collaborative, ongoing professional learning that maintains a culture of excellence in every area of our school. Our parents become part of our vibrant, pluralistic and welcoming community. It is a community like no other; a community where love and joy are ever-present.

At MJDS, our outstanding teachers guide students on an interdisciplinary, student-owned learning journey where a culture of innovation and Jewish values in action are pillars. Our students learn as their minds are nourished and their souls are nurtured. Students know the importance of being a good person as well as a good student while taking care of each other and the world around them. Jewish values are integrated into every aspect of a student’s learning journey as we celebrate all expressions of Judaism as part of connecting with one another.

I am thrilled you are taking the time to explore our website and believe the best way to really know us and understand the unique MJDS learning journey is to see it for yourself. I invite you to visit us and experience how we inspire and facilitate our students’ passions in an atmosphere driven by our core values of wonder, empathy and tikkun olam. Spend time at MJDS and you will soon understand what we mean when say that at MJDS, we inspire a passion for learning.

As a parent of three current MJDS students, I see the incredible impact of choosing MJDS for your family. I look forward to sharing MJDS with you, through the eyes of our students today and those who are already making the world a better place by leading, succeeding and engaging.
