Milwaukee Jewish Day school(mjds) is so much more than a school. I have children at the school and I have been very impressed. The teachers are excellent and do all they can to make them have the best learning experience. Besides the education being excellent they are teaching the children about the needs of the world around us and how to do our part in making the world a better place. In my mind there is no comparison when it comes MJDS.

MJDS is a great school. Our daughter was loved and nurtured by her teachers in kindergarten and the lower school. And she was challenged academically in the middle school. She entered high school with the skills to excel (earning a 3.98 cumulative GPA). In addition, MJDS gave her the guidance to develop as a caring member of the community. The values taught at this school translated into a confident, kind and globally focused young woman. This was the best investment my husband and I ever made.

We had a bad experience with MJDS. We would not recommend this school to anyone. Although the school has a "no bullying" policy my kid was being bullied constantly and nobody cared. The administration didn't do anything about it. They only want your money and they only count you if you pay full tuition.

My children have thanked me repeatedly for sending them to MJDS, where curiosity and learning happen. They didn't realize how good a school it was until they started high school, and found out how much they had learned during their years at MJDS that their classmates still hadn't learned. It's a school that encourages kids to aim high, but readily provides extra help for kids who request it. There are kids here from different economic backgrounds. The school enforces a "no bullying" policy and encourages cooperation among people of all ages, has a "book buddies" program that pairs younger and older kids, and is a warm, engaging, evolving, positive environment for learning. I highly recommend it!

I have four children currently enrolled at MJDS and I can say with confidence that it has been the best decision I have ever made. The academics are outstanding. Each and every staff member and teacher takes care of and nurtures my children which leads to self confidence and a level of compassion for others I have not seen at other schools. In addition, the parent community is warm and inclusive which really communicates the feeling of belonging and a sense of community.

My kids come home with smiles almost every day. They love the school, and they are really learning ideas and problem solving. I am surprised at the breadth of opportunities in a relatively small school school. They also have some really superstar teachers.

Sending your kids to MJDS is a waste of time and money! There is nothing special about this school. Public schools in the area offer so much more. We tried this school but it was terrible in so many ways.

MJDS has an incredibly warm and nurturing environment. The teachers really care about each individual child. I have two kids in the school, and I regularly get phone calls home from teachers just to share something fun or positive. I also appreciate the recent changes in math and reading curriculum -- great steps forward!

I should give no stars!!! This is very very very bad school. I had so bad experience with this school. My son suffered from 1-st day. Student separated between rich and poor. Teachers don t do nothing about it. But OK. we came to study, not to play. Very poor program. After four month I took my child from the school. Thanks G-d he is in normal WI school now.

An alum currently in high school, I feel MJDS did an exceptional job preparing me. The indescribable relationships between teachers and students is something that we take for granted. Chances are, you will never be able to get the same attention and devotion from your teachers as you got at MJDS. It was a great environment that gave me a powerful Jewish education that has become an essential part of my understanding of the world. I may not agree with every philosophy that the school brought upon me, but it allowed me to expand my horizons and think outside the box, which is most important in an elementary education.

I'm a teacher and a parent at this wonderful school. A wonderful learning environment where the child can find their own identity, be wonderfully prepared academically, learn their culture naturally, feel loved and have their voice heard.

Milwaukee Jewish Day School has given my children a well-balanced education while providing a family atmosphere. My children come home everyday with new information that they have learned from their teachers & peers. I hope more families realize what an amazing school MJDS really is!!

Preparing children for the future is key. I think Milwaukee Jewish Day School captures the escence of learning, making the learning an enjoyable thing. Not only does it prepare you well, it excedes preperation. At MJDS, the goal is to educate your children, as well as teaching them about what it means to be Jewish. I am in the current 7th grade and this school has really helped me to find who I am.

MJDS is an excellent school. The art program (or as they call it in the school, OMANUT), is an amazing program with tons of choices to choose for electives. The sports are awesome. MJDS is academically excellent, and, if you look at the profile of the school, you could see that MJDS is a better school than every other school around it. Teachers are very nice and love to teach, and everyone knows everyone and there is absoloutely no violence. MJDS is a home and a family.

MJDS is a great school. Teachers love to teach and the environment is great. Everyone know everyone and learning is fun. With interesting field trips, fun Jewish holidays participation and the great Jewish feeling around, this school is excellent. Not to mention that on state tests. MJDS is definitely an acadmmically accelerating school with tons of opportunities.
