The impression I got was that as long as you have money you are treated exceptionally well. Heaven forbid you need a subsidy then you are looked down upon. You would think a child's Jewish education would trump inability to pay their exorbitant fees. It's no wonder there are so few kids in each class. I also found staff turnover to be exceptionally worrisome.

Handles bullying effectively: Disagree


- a
this was not my experience - I guess as long a the bully is a kid of a parent employee they look the other way


Supports LD students: Neutral


- a
can't say as the need did not arise

Effective school leaders: Neutral


- a
not sure how large staff turnover translates to effective leadership

Develops character: Neutral


- a
The school may purport to develop these characters in it's students, but this was not my impression from student behavior I witnessed in general


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
with the staff turnover I was witness to it is difficult to develop a sense of effective teaching

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
The school did not believe in homework altogether

SSDS provides a warm, safe and nurturing environment where children are inspired daily. Teachers instill a thirst for learning and creativity using current "best practices" as well as up-to-date technology. Outstanding leadership filters down to staff and students. The duel curriculum encourages children to learn about Judaism, Israel and the world at large. Our family has children enrolled from Pre-K to middle school and we are thrilled with the quality of the entire program.

I will never forget when my, now, second grader visited Schechter in kindergarten. She had the privilege of being in class for the release of the butterflies. Later that day the teacher sent me a picture of her face, full of wonder, releasing a butterfly. I thought to myself - that is engagement. It has continued in this way ever since.

Schechter recently adopted a Reader's and Writer's workshop model in Language arts. This structure allows for differentiated instruction and each child gets exactly what they need. My second grader is reading well above grade level.
