- JDS (www.jds.org) is an Early Childhood through 8th Grade independent day school located on seven gorgeous acres in the Crossroads area of Bellevue just two miles south of Microsoft`s main campus. Our inquiry-based learning program fosters critical thinking, problem solving, confidence, collaboration, leadership, innovation and more all in a global learning environment. Through inquiry, our students master the same core competencies (content and skills) as their peers in public and other area independent schools, only JDS` inquiry program takes students further, teaching them to think deeper, engage, collaborate and problem solve. Core academics at JDS are enriched with Judaic studies and serve as a foundation for lifelong learning. Ultimately, JDS students know who they are, understand what it means to be part of a community, and are empowered to make a difference in the world by taking action. Our sprawling campus includes a STEAM Innovation Lab, a "Design Lab" complete with maker space, green screen and 3-D printer, a state of the art Athletic Center and multiple play and exploratory areas. At JDS, curiosity leads to discovery.
