From the Head of School


On behalf of the staff and students at the N. E. Miles Jewish Day School, welcome to our website. There is a great deal of important information on our site so please look around. I am honored to serve as the  Head of School for the 2022-2023 school year. The N. E. Miles Jewish Day School is known for having a nurturing faculty and staff, compassionate student body, and a community which cares about the school’s success. Our focus is building strong, lasting, impactful relationships with everyone associated with our school. The NEMJDS is a special place, filled with people who love serving students, parents and our community.

I’ve always believed that student safety – physical, emotional, spiritual, and academic – is the most important feature of a school. The N. E. Miles Jewish Day School encompasses all of this and more.  

My personal motto is “Doing whatever it takes.”  That phrase is more than just words. It means doing everything we need to make each day meaningful for our kids. It means taking care of the adults who take care of the kids. It means working until we find a solution. It means never giving up.

With our small student-teacher ratio, we individualize the educational experience for each student. Moreover, our goal is to help our children fully develop their unique talents and skills.

The NEMJDS broadens learning opportunities beyond traditional classroom walls. Our highly skilled faculty, innovative general and Jewish studies curriculum, and our supportive school culture allow our students to embark on a rigorous academic learning journey and grow into the best version of themselves. As our students develop into leaders, we emphasize and prioritize what it means to be a leader in one’s community. Through our values-based education, community partnerships, and experiential learning programs, our students engage with the community to develop an understanding of social justice.

Although I know you will find our website useful, nothing compares to an on-site visit. Please make an appointment to tour our wonderful school by emailing me at  If you have any immediate questions we might answer, please send an email to

I hope to see you in person soon.
