The Stanford Eisenberg Knoxville Jewish Day School is a vibrant community school filled with joy, rooted in core Jewish values, and devoted to academic excellence. Serving the entire Knoxville community, our families are diverse in their beliefs, affiliations and observances; we work together to create a welcoming community based upon mutual respect and shared values.

Joy, Community, Exploration

JOY (שמחה): Joy is at the forefront of all that we do. We know that children are naturally curious, and they love to learn. We nurture that love in a variety of ways. At KJDS, you will immediately recognize that we all truly enjoy each other and you will certainly hear much laughter.

Community (קהילה): Our KJDS community is comprised of students, staff, families, and community volunteers. We all come together in support of our students. Our safe and supportive environment lays the groundwork for the students’ academic and social / emotional success. We also nurture our students’ Jewish identity, giving them a confidence in their faith that stays with them as they grow.

Exploration (חקירה): Students excel when their interests are piqued, and they are excited about their learning.  At KJDS, we are full of engaged students!  In order for our exploratory based classrooms to succeed, students need to collaborate, problem-solve, and apply their knowledge to real world situations.  We give them the skills of respect and thoughtful questioning.  We nurture their creativity and teach them how to give and receive constructive feedback.  KJDS students are always engaged in productive struggle that leads to academic excellence.
