From Our Head of School
I believe that the strength of the JCDSRI learning community stems from the relationships that exist among the people who call JCDSRI home. As Dr. Comer of Yale University explains: “No significant learning occurs without a significant relationship.” The intentional building of relationships at JCDSRI – between teachers and students, parents and educators, the school and the broader community – lays a sturdy foundation on which our students can explore and discover, learning to embrace the unknown with a sense of purpose and belonging.
Come visit our school and meet the people who make JCDSRI such a special learning community. I believe that you will be inspired – as I am – by the next generation of philosophers, designers, builders, seekers and doers.
