OJDS was founded by a visionary group of parents over 7 years ago and has a continuing culture of parental involvement. Parents and families have the opportunity to be actively engaged in every aspect of school life. The Parent Volunteer Association and various committees plan and coordinate activities both inside and outside of the classroom.


A basic value of OJDS is to care for the less fortunate among us, and to actively support the greater community that surrounds us. The school has earned a reputation for its community caring projects and its involvement in the Jewish life of the local community. The school's philosophy includes giving back to the community that has so generously donated to the creation and continuation of the OJDS campus. OJDS depends on financial and volunteer support from a wide segment of the Orlando community.
