We are a pluralistic community school egalitarian in every way and a member of RAVSAK, the Community Day School Network and accredited by Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS).
MJDS offers Jewish children an exceptional high school preparatory, Hebrew, and Jewish education.
In addition to Hebrew and Jewish studies classes, students receive comprehensive instruction in all aspects of language arts, science, math, social studies, and physical education.
MJDS students are enriched by creative and innovative programming in the visual and performing arts, music, and computer technology.
Our mission is to provide students with an outstanding education that builds in them the knowledge and feelings to live a Jewish life, reach their personal and academic potential, and contribute positively to the Jewish community, American society and to the people of Israel.
