Jewish Day School of the Lehigh Valley

The Jewish Day School of the Lehigh Valley is a community school for primary kindergarten to grade eight that is dedicated to a holistic approach to education. The JDS is devoted to the development of bright, confident students with strong American and Jewish identity who are well prepared to meet the world. The school combines a well-rounded general studies curriculum, a richly fortified Jewish education and a deep commitment to the land and people of Israel. 



We at the Jewish Day School of the Lehigh Valley understand that learning is a life-long journey embarked upon in partnership with family, school and community; therefore, everyone with whom a student interacts serves as a guide to help negotiate the path to success.
