Student Life and the Mensch Factor
Every year our students have the opportunity to join different clubs. Examples of these clubs include “Build a Village,” which engages kids in cooperatively and creatively building, “Baking,” and “Chess Club,” which is taught by a nationally recognized chess player.
CJDS is located in Shalom Park. Shalom Park is an extended neighborhood of educational, religious, social service, recreational, and social organizations serving the Jewish community of Charlotte. CJDS shares the beautiful 54-acre campus with the Levine Jewish Community Center and several beneficiary agencies of the Jewish Federation of Greater Charlotte. CJDS students are able to form close relationships with their Shalom Park neighbors as they meet for community events and religious celebrations. In addition, this cooperative community environment provides CJDS families with a variety of enrichment programs and afterschool activities, all easily accessible from the day school.
