Principal’s Message

Brodt_Abba_3Bruchim Habaim and welcome to the Richmond Jewish Day School, a dynamic Jewish Day School for girls and boys from kindergarten through the 7th grade.  Thank you for visiting us online.  I invite you to learn more about our school by exploring the rest of our website.

Richmond Jewish Day School exemplifies all the elements of a successful school experience; a rigorous General Studies education and an inspiring Jewish learning experience that helps prepare students not only to participate in Jewish life, but to one day shape it too. We offer small classes, engaged and experienced teachers, an academically challenging curriculum, an inclusive athletics program, and a warm and supportive parent community.

We are a close knit community that values and nurtures the relationship among teachers, parents, and students. Each year, we review and improve our curriculum and are accredited by the Ministry of Education, Independent Schools Branch. Our vision for each academic year is clear – we want to bring out the best in each student – academically, Jewishly and socially, as scholars, athletes, artists, writers, scientists and leaders.

What truly sets this school apart is our unique spirit. This spirit is above all else a warm and inviting sense of community. It encompasses our teacher and curriculum specialists whose expertise, creativity and passion come through each day as they inspire students to realize his or her full potential.

If you are the parent of a young child searching for a nurturing kindergarten environment or the parent of an older child looking for a rigorous and supportive one, we invite you to become acquainted with our programs, and most importantly, visit the school to see the spirit and special atmosphere that is Richmond Jewish Day School.  We look forward to meeting with you soon.

Kol tuv,

Abba Brodt,
Principal
