BYDS has served as Houston`s first Jewish Day School in the Houston Community for 75 years.
We are a school designed to prepare students with the skills and foundation to excel in a more global society.
Our teachers partner together to deliver a creative, collaborative, and enriching learning experience from the beginning of each child`s education journey through their fifth-grade graduation.
We aim to create educational experiences that engage our students in an authentic quest for Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and Middot (personal spiritual growth).
Take a closer look at our academic program in action, from our earliest students of 3 months old to our fifth graders, and you`ll see enthusiasm, zest, creativity, curiosity, and community spirit.
We offer small classroom sizes, excellent teachers who receive hours of professional development, student leadership opportunities, a warm and nurturing environment, a strong foundation of Jewish values, a comfortable and safe place to build confidence and character, and friendships and memories for life.
