Student LifeSan Diego Jewish Academy has often been referred to by parents as a “home away from home.” The sense of community is ever-present in the classroom, on the playground, and in all campus-wide events.

Children from the Early Childhood Center, lower school and upper school often interact whether it be for the homecoming parade, Purim activities, or special events. It’s common to see high school students volunteering in the preschool, varsity players mentoring middle school athletes, and upper school students leading Passover services for middle school classes.

You’ll hear English, Spanish, Afrikaans, Chinese and Hebrew spoken across the campus.

Student life at Maimonides Upper School includes an active associated student body (A.S.B.), groups for both middle and high school students and a wide array of clubs for high school students.

A.S.B. elections are held during the first few weeks of school. Elected officers work with a faculty advisor to organize dances, holidays, celebrations and other student activities, including lunch-time competitions, pep rallies and the Homecoming floats and parade.

SDJA is a gathering place – for students, teachers, staff, parents and even grandparents!
