School Notes

  • 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. Our children enrich their Jewish identity as they respectfully explore, debate and embrace Jewish life and learning. Our Jewish values are intertwined in a multidisciplinary curriculum that extends beyond the common core standards and the classroom, into real life experiences that transform students into mensches, problem solvers, critical thinkers and leaders.MJDS` commitment to innovation and 21st century learning is demonstrated through the continued focus on student-owned learning, a new 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.MJDS alumni are doctors, lawyers, performing artists, business leaders, sports entertainers and Jewish leaders, to name a few. They continue to distinguish themselves academically, professionally and by making a difference in their communities and the world.
