In the Community

Our kids have found a home at JDS and they are both thriving - we could not be more thrilled to be part of the CESJDS family!

The backgrounds of CESJDS families express the pluralistic intentions of our school.
Our families come from over 40 unique zip codes around the Metro D.C. area, and speak 12 different languages (English, Hebrew, American Sign Language, Farsi, French, Greek, Japanese, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish).

About 38% of students affiliate Conservative; 21% Modern Orthodox; 3% Reform; 9% affiliate as “other” which includes Chabad, Reconstructionist, Traditional, and Humanistic, and 29% of students did not report an affiliation. CESJDS families are members of over 40 synagogues in the area, serve the community professionally, and are involved in other Jewish and secular organizations, alike.

I love the friendships at CESJDS and the mutual respect and understanding of a pluralistic and anti-bias school community
