"What a wonderful school! I recently spent a delightful morning at Maimonides. The children were so friendly and attentive, even the youngest ones. The older children clearly loved stories, had highly developed audience skills, and asked interesting questions.  I hope I gave them the answers they deserved."

            Eric Kimmel, author


"The teachers impress me with professional, high-quality expertise, and they are thoughtful and engaging, way more so than what I remember when my own children attended school a few years ago.  The attention to each child is amazing, and the children are engaged and eager to learn at their own pace. I am so happy that I have the opportunity to be here and to help."

            Bruce Banasky, volunteer


We found the students at Maimonides Jewish Day School to be thoughtfully engaged and respectfully considerate, while genuinely expressing a creative wonder and an enthusiastic desire to learn. The academic atmosphere at your school reflects a balance of Jewish scholarly knowledge with day-to-day experiential education."

"Maimonides has had a long-lasting effect, instilling middot in our daughters. Today, one is a nurse, and the other is a teacher; we see that positive, long-lasting effect in our daughters today. The school also instilled in them the value of community."   

Stuart and Joy Greenberger, community members

"Maimonides Jewish Day School has helped my son develop into a wonderful, loving, caring individual and a proud Jew

Debbie Both, past parent

"My son transitioned from a school for hard of hearing to Maimonides this past year. My wife and I were nervous about this transition for him, but valued the mixed Judaic and secular curriculum offered at Maimonides. Maimonides has surpassed our expectations! The inclusive environment is focused both on learning, respect of child, and building socialization and good character skills for future growth. We continue to be impressed by how Maimonides balances individual child needs in the context of its curriculum."

Simcha and Rachel Dolgin, parents

"My daughter had some special learning disabilities and they have been able to really help her learn to love learning and they give her and me a lot of attention. I know that my daughter has learned the foundations to become a strong Jewish community member wherever she may go and whatever she may do in her life."

Dana Donaldson, parent 

"Something very profound and special happens when children and residents at Cedar Sinai connect. The students from Maimonides bring open hearts, uninhibited laughter, and respect with them. The residents in return, experience joy, learning, and a sense of value and appreciation. It is a perfect match!"

Eddy Shuldman, Cedar Sinai Park Board member

"Maimonides has fulfilled a need in the Portland community and provides Jewish learning in a gentle way."

Gersham Goldstien, community member 

"Maimonides was great at giving a lot of individual attention to each student!"

Amy Whinston, past parent
