Caring | Common Sense | Consideration | Cooperation | Courtesy
There are core elements of education that are timeless, and yet the tools and strategies we use to deliver on that education must emulate the world our children occupy.
We take pride in upholding traditions that bridge the many generations of JTD graduates together, but we also know that we have a responsibility to prepare our children to be contributing members of their community, and as such, we emphasize 21st century skills, character education, and service learning.
Our Community
The hallmark of a JTD education is our community's commitment to character education that stems from our core values, affectionately known as The 5C's: caring, common sense, consideration, cooperation, and courtesy.
