The Jewish Day School of Metropolitan Seattle (JDS) is a Jewish community Day School serving more than 120 children,  Early Childhood through 8th Grade. Our gorgeous seven acre campus is located east of downtown Seattle, in the Crossroads area of Bellevue - just two miles south of Microsoft's main campus. Our inquiry-based learning program fosters critical thinking, problem solving, confidence, collaboration, leadership, innovation and more – all in a global learning environment.

JDS was founded in 1980 by a small group of community leaders who longed to provide an exceptional values-based, 'whole child' education delivered in a Jewish environment and made available to every child regardless of Jewish lineage. JDS, the region’s first “community” day school, opened with 32 students as a Kindergarten through 2nd Grade school in the former Temple De Hirsch Sinai facility in Bellevue. JDS moved to its current home, a former Bellevue elementary school campus, in the mid-1980s. Today, our sprawling campus includes a STEAM Innovation Lab, a new Design Lab (our version of a Maker Space), a state of the art Athletic Center and multiple play and exploratory areas.
