Cutler Jewish Day School


Nearly 30 years ago Rabbi Meir and Morah Sheindal Muller founded the school to provide a loving environment for the community’s children. Being inspired by the world-renown educational approach developed in Reggio Emilia, Italy, Cutler Jewish Day School has become known for offering hands-on learning through student-driven projects that connect to issues of social justice. It also has extended opportunities for children to explore the school’s wooded area, a focus on higher-order thinking skills, and teaches children character and integrity. While the school has grown in these areas over the years, the fundamental connection to Jewish teachings and values along with the nurturing care of children and families remains.

From the words of a Cutler Jewish Day School parent, “the feeling you get each day when you drop off and pick up knowing that your child has the opportunity to attend school there, is truly touching. There is a special feeling knowing that your child is so loved, protected, nurtured, and, not to mention educated, in all facets of life. I really feel that the children there at Cutler Jewish Day School are a step ahead in life.”

Our Mission

“My son has been attending Cutler Jewish Day School for six years now. I can’t say enough about this school. He loves it there. He looks forward to going every day. I love it there as a parent. The teachers are the best. My son excels in math. His teachers make sure he is always challenged. They are flexible in their teaching methods, which my son needs. Sometimes he needs to be taught differently than the other children in his class in order to learn the material. This is no problem for them. I would give this school an A+++!”
