The Jewish Day School
is where sparks of imagination are celebrated
and bright young minds are encouraged to explore
igniting a passion for life long learning.
Where children shine with a strong sense of self
in the glow of warm caring educators.

"A teacher presented us with a picture that Levi had drawn of himself and his image of G-d; 'before I was born I was Hanging with G-d.' I love my children's own path to Judaism and how they are defining themselves Jewishly in an Interfaith family." -Ida Wicklund, JDS Parent
"JDS helped nurture the kid's love of community and helped shape them into confident young people committed to helping others." -Alumni Parent Lisa Robin, Mom to Zach and Hannah.
"We believe that The Jewish Day School of Metropolitan Seattle is providing our grand-children with a strong sense of belonging, an awareness of their cultural heritage and most of all, pride in being Jewish." -Lee and David Amos, JDS Grandparents
"We love the inquiry-based learning where the kids are not just told to memorize facts , but inspired to question and investigate the topics at hand. This makes the children more curious and more resourceful in getting the answers needed." -Lisa Chaki & Alan Post, JDS Parents
"I'm indebted to JDS because both my parents are Holocaust survivors. I have no doubt in my mind that our children have a Jewish identity because of JDS." -Dr. Jerry Kent, Alumni Dad
"We appreciate the multi-faceted path of learning which helps students grow into gracious and giving individuals with a continued desire to learn about our heritage and how it effects the world around us, and to be uninhibited to step up to the plate." -Ron & Jacquelyn Estrin
"JDS has provided us a place where our daughter is getting a top notch education, where they reinforce strong values, they teach her to problem solve, how to navigate and resolve disputes. We also know there is always a community of other parents and educators to share your joys and to help you if you are in need. " -Deb Seres, JDS Parent
"JDS has given our children a love of learning, the insight and desire to live as upstanding and caring individuals, and the gift of excellent academics to prepare them for high school and beyond." -Janice Brumer, JDS Parent
