School Reviews

If you are looking for a school with a great community of families, where faculty really care about your child's success, where there is an emphasis on strong academics and where your child will be happy, then please consider CCJDS! Both my children started CCJDS in Kindergarten. My daughter recently graduated and is now attending a local public school where she is thriving and believes that CCJDS did a great job preparing her for the rigors of high school. My son is in Middle School, he works hard but finds school exciting and is looking forward to his 8th grade class trip to Israel. The faculty at CCJDS is great and make the learning experience so enriching! The school offers quite a bit of financial assistance for families who need. We love CCJDS!

CCJDS has consistently provided a warm, loving environment in which my 8th grade son has developed as a confident, well-rounded student. We''re particularly thrilled with the school's commitment to providing Spanish for the middle school, and to the advanced math curriculum. Dean Goldfein is very committed to creating a smooth transition to high school, based on the requirements of our specific school. We''ve been very happy here, and encourage more Reform/secular Jews to apply. This *is* the place for you.
