Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School (formerly JPDS-NC) is the only Jewish Day School in Washington, D.C. and provides collaborative and experiential learning with an engaging and flexible dual curriculum of general and Jewish studies to children in grades PK-7. Grade 8 will open in fall 2019. Milton delivers a top-notch education in every subject area, equipping graduates to succeed wherever their next steps lead them, as well as a deep grounding in Jewish values. The environment of the school is vibrantly pluralistic — students from across the spectrum of Jewish observance (and non-observance) are welcomed enthusiastically, as are interfaith families.
The Early Childhood School at BSO is a warm and nurturing Jewish preschool open to all children. With part-time and full-time (7am-6pm) options, enrichment programs that include soccer, karate, yoga, and more, and a play-based, developmentally appropriate approach, we provide a high quality care and education.
