Alums in Action
Leading, Engaging and Succeeding
At MJDS we care about each of our students, instilling a lifelong love of learning and the skills to become upstanding citizens. While on their MJDS journey, students develop the mindset and work ethic needed to collaborate, create and succeed in any environment. Our graduates are leaders among their peers and in the larger community. They are passionate, self-assured, critical thinkers who bring their Jewish values to engage and improve our world.
To date, more than 800 students have graduated rom MJDS. We invite you to read their stories which illustrate the incredible young men and women who take their knowledge and experiences from an MJDS education and positively impact the world.
