- The Columbus Jewish Day School provides children in Kindergarten through Grade 6 with the academic and social tools they need to grow into independent, creative individuals, critical thinkers, committed members of the Jewish community, and ethical, socially responsible human beings. Our school provides a pluralistic Jewish education serving the needs of Jewish families of all denominations and styles of Jewish expression. CJDS families come from all areas of Columbus and from across the spectrum of Jewish backgrounds -- Conservative, Orthodox, Reform, and unaffiliated. Our students learn to honor the varied approaches to Jewish observance and belief, and celebrate the diversity of Jewish life. Our parents, through active involvement in school activities and programs, form a strong community of families committed to academic excellence and Jewish education and values.
