Chicago Jewish Day School is a multi-denominational Jewish day school on the cutting edge of best practices in progressive education. CJDS has an extraordinary commitment to engaging and educating the next generation of Jewish learners and leaders at our new campus in the Irving Park neighborhood. Through our integrated and experiential learning curriculum, we are recognized for both our academic excellence and our meaningful approach to Judaic Studies and Hebrew. Together, they create a challenging and thought-provoking curriculum that develops a child’s capacity for complex learning and a strong moral compass. Whether it be the 2.6 acres of outdoor space allowing children to explore nature, their imaginations, and active play, or the stunning, state of the art, thoughtful classrooms that encourage the students to dig in, question, collaborate, struggle, explore, and learn, every space at CJDS reflects our respect for individual students and their needs. As a result, 95% of our graduates gain acceptance to their first-choice high school, including Chicago’s competitive selective enrollment and private schools, where they become leaders in their schools and communities.
