CCJDS has consistently provided a warm, loving environment in which my 8th grade son has developed as a confident, well-rounded student. We're particularly thrilled with the school's commitment to providing Spanish for the middle school, and to the advanced math curriculum. Dean Goldfein is very committed ...  Read more

This school has great academics in most areas. However, the school seems to be focused more on Hebrew and Hebrew grammar then on English and English grammar, and focus more (in general) on the students who are thriving and not on the students who are struggling. I would not suggest this school to anyone ...  Read more

As parent of two students at this school, i want the community and prospective parents to know what a great place CCJDS is. It is true community of caring teachers, administrators and families. Academics are outstanding and students get the added benefit of learning about their jewish heritage and developing ...  Read more

My child says that he has learned more ...  Read more
