Grades: K - 5 | 96 students
SJCS provides an exceptional integrated education through the lens of the Jewish experience.
Grounded in community and an ethos of intellectual rigor, we raise our students to develop thoughtful inquiry, courageous and compassionate connection to others and a strong sense of who they are.
Our integrated dual curriculum of General and Judaic Studies fosters a child's intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual development.
We know that confident children who possess a strong sense of identity and belonging are better prepared to challenge themselves academically, to assume leadership roles in their future communities, and to interact fully and positively in a diverse and ever-changing world.
SJCS is a place where kids and families thrive.
For over 20 years, we've guided students in building academic foundations for learning and ethical foundations for living.
