As the only Jewish day school in the nation’s capital, Milton students benefit from the school’s urban location and the expertise of our community of public servants, scientists, business leaders, academics, artists, and other professionals who enrich the academic experience of our students.
Milton is a vibrant, pluralistic Jewish day school where students, families, and faculty mirror the diversity of Jewish practice in the community. Our warm, close-knit community shares in each other’s lives, learns together, participates in a variety of family and adult programs, and contributes to local and global communities through civic engagement.
The school serves more than 460 students in Grades Pre-K – 8 at our Kay and Robert Schattner Center North and South Campuses.
Think Milton could be your child’s home for 2024-25? We would love to meet you to see if there might be an opportunity to welcome your family to ours.
