Cutler Jewish Day School

It is through our faith and cultural heritage that we define the focus of our educational approach.
The love for children and families, the emphasis on academic rigor, and the need to be involved with issues of social justice make our school special.
There is something magical about being in our school. Whether one is attuned to the students working at constructing knowledge, the school coupling with families to best serve children, or the laughter and joy as children work together, there is a positive feel throughout the Day School.

School Reviews

My son has been attending Columbia Jewish Day School for 6 years now. I can't say enough about this school. He loves it there. He looks forward to going everyday. I love it there as a parent. The teachers are the best. My son excells in math. His teachers make sure he is always challenged. They are flexible in their teaching methods which my son needs. Sometimes he needs to be taught differently then the other children in his class in order to learn the material. This is no problem for them. I would give this school an A+++!
