At Community Day School our children could take advantage of the smaller class sizes, increased individual attention from their teachers, and the chance to excel even further in their studies. In addition, receiving a rigorous education in Jewish culture and history will serve only to strengthen their sense of themselves as Jews, which is needed more and more in today’s world.
