Welcome to Mandel JDS
Project-Based Learning is a proven educational philosophy where students are given the opportunity to question, problem-solve, think critically, be creative, and integrate all of the academic subjects they learn every day.
We welcome and have respect for all at Mandel JDS. We celebrate diversity and we strive to understand one another's differences. This makes us stronger.
Mandel JDS provides a values-based curriculum where students are encouraged to be kind to one another and make a difference in the world around them.
