Our Jewish values are intertwined in a multidisciplinary curriculum that extends beyond the common core standards and the classroom, into real life experiences that transform students into mensches, problem solvers, critical thinkers and leaders.MJDS` commitment to innovation and 21st century learning is demonstrated through the continued focus on student-owned learning, a new Innovation Hub that includes an Ideation Studio, Engineering Lab and MakerSpace and a year round professional development cycle for our talented staff.
