After four years, we had to move to public school. Even though his dyslexia isn't severe, this ended up being a bad fit.. Because it is a private school, I had to pay a lot to get extra tutors b/c he wasn't getting enough 1:1. And sadly, I had to hire a Hebrew tutor as well - there isn't much differentiation ...  Read more

I have had two children go K-12 to Denver JDS and am so pleased to see them grow into fine, young adults who are so comfortable in their own skins and remain connected to their Jewish roots.

I love that my ...  Read more

The early literacy instruction is not very solid. It is based on the FAST model and other curriculum that has not adequately been peer-reviewed and proven to work over phonics. So if you have a struggling reader, they will need intervention, and believe me, you will pay for it. Some parents have removed ...  Read more

After spending several years in one of Denver's top rated public schools we made the switch to Denver Jewish while our kids were still in elementary school. We were looking for smaller class sizes and a warmer environment. What we gained was so much more! My 5th grader told me "for the first time in ...  Read more
