Visiting and ToursEvents
The best way to find a school that is right for your family is to visit. This will help you understand each school's personality and culture. This is certainly true at JCDS, where we anticipate you will find a joyful, inviting, and dynamic learning environment.
We love to welcome guests into JCDS and hope you will find time to visit us, either by scheduling a personal tour with our Director of Admissions, or by attending a range of events throughout the year that are open to the community.
Visiting & Tours
SCHEDULE A TOUR
The school you choose should reflect your values, and make possible your dreams for your child. A personal tour is the most valuable part of this research process. It is your chance to spend time in JCDS classes to see firsthand how the teachers teach, how they interact with the students, and how the students respond to each other and the adults in their midst.
For prospective families considering applying for admission to JCDS, the personal tour is a required step in the admissions process. This visit will help you learn more about the school to determine whether you should move forward with your application, and will help JCDS begin to get to know your family and learn how we can best support and partner with you.
When you visit, you can look for evidence, in the faces of the children and in the actions of the adults, that what is of value to you is of value to JCDS. Come ready with your questions both general and those specific to your family and your child, as you will have the undivided attention of Gavi Elkind, Director of Admissions.
JCDS offers a number of events throughout the year that are open to the community. Some events are geared towards prospective families considering enrolling their children at JCDS. Others provide opportunities for adult learning and conversation. We hope you will explore the array of opportunities available for you to connect with and learn more about the JCDS community.
