It's common to see our students skip up the sidewalk to school in the morning. Pausing to greet teachers, excited to share a story from their evenings, they can't wait to join their friends in the classroom. Our students love school!

The Jewish Community Day School of RI is a joyful, inclusive community that nurtures creativity and imagination while helping students acquire the knowledge and skills that will enable them to be successful in life.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our innovative learning community.
