Welcome to Milton!

We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about the Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation’s Capital.

We look forward to getting to know you and your child as we guide you through each step of the admission process.

At Milton, we emphasize critical thinking, active learning, and Design Thinking in our General Studies, Hebrew, and Judaic Studies curricula.

We challenge students to reason, question, and analyze, and provide opportunities for independent thinking and creative expression. Milton students find joy in discovery and in intellectual, religious, and moral growth. Low student-teacher ratios allow Milton faculty to devote much attention to each child, addressing individual styles and rates of learning within the classroom.

Students are encouraged in an appropriate manner to fulfill their potentials. Our approach to learning inspires students to make connections across disciplines and to establish a relationship between their studies and their experiences.

We invite you to experience our vibrant community.

We host four Open Houses annually and give tours daily. Please send us an email or call our office at 202-291-5737 x 2207 to sign up for an Open House, schedule a tour, or inquire about Milton. You may also use our online inquiry form.

We look forward to personally arranging your visit and welcoming your family to our school.

“When you enter the school, you can feel that it is a place of joy, a place of excitement, a place where students are engaged in what they were learning.”
