School Notes

  • 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.

From time to time we all wonder how things might have turned out if circumstances and situations had been different. We apply that questioning to private schools.
