I think, rather, that putting together a balanced schedule of classes is an important ingredient in every student’s recipe for happiness and ultimate success. I want to help students create balance and put themselves in a position to be happy, successful and the best version of themselves."
Dave Jenkins, Assistant Head of Upper School for Student Life and College Counseling
Social responsibility is an integral part of the philosophy of LJCDS. The school mentors students to become lifelong service leaders who act with honor and integrity. Upper School students demonstrate community engagement and service-learning by participating in a variety of service opportunities both on campus and in local and global communities. Our model provides a foundation for giving back beginning with school-sponsored opportunities in partnership with local nonprofits and culminating in independent service projects and reflection in the senior year.
