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.

JCDSRI’s progressive curriculum engages students as hands-on learners, problem solvers and critical thinkers within a rigorous dual-language environment. Our graduates go on to thrive at both private and public middle schools, where they stand out as leaders and role models.

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