Maimonides Jewish Day School
- Maimonides Jewish Day School was founded in September 1985 to provide a nurturing and challenging education for children. From that time until today, MJDS has placed children at the center, encouraging each child to flourish through personalized as well as classroom community learning. At Maimonides, our aspiration is to provide a strong foundation upon which every child may build for a lifetime.
