Welcome home Milton community! We are so excited to see our students and start an amazing year of learning.
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 470 students in Grades Pre-K – 8 at our Kay and Robert Schattner Center North and South Campuses.
