My 2 children and our family have loved being a part of JCDSRI. Our children are learning how to be leaders and thoughtful students. Academically, the teachers and specialists make sure our children's needs are met so they can thrive as learners. You will not find a more loving school community.

Next year, I will have three children at JCDSRI (pre-K, 1 and 4) and we couldn't be happier! We have watched an excellent school push the envelope even further under its new Head of School, Adam Tilove, who has really leveraged the creative and academic communities in Providence to enhance the education and better the city. It's one of those things that you have to see to believe!

My kids have been both challenged academically as well as nurtured emotionally at JCDSRI. Additionally, our interfaith family has always felt included and at home here. Genuinely feel thankful we chose this school for our kids.
