Our Approach

Seattle Jewish Community School (SJCS) progresses seamlessly from Kindergarten to 5th grade, with each step building the foundational skills and values of a well-rounded education. 

Throughout the grades, SJCS maintains a strong focus on social-emotional learning, weaving it seamlessly with Jewish values and an intellectual heritage that prizes questions and celebrates multiple perspectives.

This approach ensures that students not only excel academically but also grow as empathetic, responsible, and well-rounded individuals connected to their communities and the different sources of their identities, including their Jewish heritage.

Our progression from Kindergarten to 5th grade, its cohort program, and thoughtful curricular integration, provide a multi-faceted educational experience that prepares students for success in both academics and life beyond school.
