About our school- MWJDS is a wonderful independent school that has been educating children and building community in the Metrowest area for nearly 20 years. Our nearly 50 students range from grades PK-8, and our intentionally small classes tend to have between 5-10 students each. We are a pluralistic Jewish school, welcoming all Jewish backgrounds and practices, and our families come to us from as far east as Brookline, and as far west as Worcester. We are known for our individual approach to each child and family, and we emphasize individual problem solving, creativity, discovery, and paths of learning in both general and Judaic subject areas. A number of our students receive specially targeted support from our expert support staff members, and their diversity makes our community all the more interesting.
