At a Glance

The N. E. Miles Jewish Day School is a SACS accredited, independent private school that educates children from kindergarten through the eighth grade. High academic standards and a rigorous dual secular and Judaic curriculum challenge our students to excel at a higher educational level. A low teacher-to-student ratio maximizes the opportunity for individualized instruction and creates an atmosphere which fosters student success.

All children deserve a school that:

  • Values every part of their identity and development.
  • Empowers students to feel comfortable in their own skin.
  • Presents opportunities and support to overcome challenges.

Who We Are 

For over forty years, the N.E. Miles Jewish Day School has inspired learning for a lifetime. We are a community day school, and through our values-based education our students learn to be leaders both in our school community and the greater community. At the N.E. Miles Jewish Day School, our high academic standards, low student-to-teacher ratio, and individualized instruction create a love of learning and an environment of academic excellence where students reach their full potential.

Our SACS accredited dual-curriculum encompasses the State of Alabama curricular goals and also a values-based Judaic studies program. Our students benefit from Hebrew language instruction; research demonstrates the numerous benefits of acquiring a second language at an early age, such as higher standardized test scores, more advanced reading skills, and greater confidence. Additionally, through our program, our students develop a strong sense of identity and pride in who they are. Our graduates depart with the confidence to act ethically and as leaders in their community as a result of our emphasis on Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) through collaborative and experiential learning.

Our school is dedicated to educating the whole child.
