Our school embraces children with mild learning issues. We have many children who are twice exceptional. Some of the children have ADHD, dyslexia, sensory processing issues, anxiety, dysgraphia, or Asperger's. We have one full time resource teacher and one part-time resource teacher. Our teachers are trained in differentiation. We do not have the resources to deal with behavioral issues. Our middle school has a study period after lunch where students can receive extra help from their teachers or complete a portion of their homework. Each middle school student also has an appointed adviser that acts as a homeroom teacher. These advisers know their students very well, so it improves the advocacy actions for them.

My children love going to school every day! Excellent teachers, head of school, and staff. We couldn't be any happier with JRDS!

I have two children at JRDS, and although they are very different types of learners, they are both challenged academically. Small classes, lots of personal attention and incredibly gifted teachers make each day a great experience. The Head of School and Assistant have a strong vision for the school - to turn out scholars, leaders and citizens - and it is echoed is everything we do at school. I encourage other parents to take a look at JRDS - its a gem!

I have been very impressed with emphasis on scholarship, leadership and citizenship. My children are challenged while being exposed to a wealth of opportunities - taking a foreign language beginning in kindergarten, gym three times a week, computer twice a week, art, music and library once a week. The teachers are committed to teaching, creative about their approach and demonstrate that our children are known and loved.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
