Kehillah Schechter Academy (KSA) is a hidden gem of a Jewish Day School. It is not everyday that one can find such a high level of dedication from the teachers. At KSA the teachers really know your child. They create individualized goals and communicate those goals with the parents. The class size lends itself to the warm and nurturing environment. I would definitely send my child to KSA - oh right, I already do!
From the moment our daughter started at KSA in kindergarten, we knew we found a very special "home away from home" for her education. She has thrived in the warm, nurturing guidance of her teachers, has been challenged with individualized instruction to meet her needs, and has her moments to shine with her classmates and friends. The balance of secular and religious education has given her a strong intellectual base that allows her to view the world and make connections well-beyond school in a unique, intelligent, and thoughtful way. Small class sizes, a personalized approach to teaching, and instruction that nurtures the "whole child" are hallmarks of this outstanding school. We are thrilled to have found such a perfect educational match for our daughter and recommend other families to check out this very special place.
Kehillah Schechter Academy is truly one of a kind. With visionary leadership, a dedicated staff and an innovative and personalized program of education, KSA helps every single student excel.
What a find! The teachers, staff and students here constitute a real community, one that is both nurturing and open. On the whole, teachers and staff are responsive. The school is also academically excellent for a range of abilities and learning styles. I had given up on Jewish day school education before our family found this jewel.
Few schools demonstrate the child-centric, inclusive and differentiated educational approach as well as SASSDS, even fewer within the Jewish day school environment. Teachers are constantly seeking to become better at teaching and, consequently, students feel nurtured and challenged to do their best. This school is attracting an incredibly diverse population and is proof that inclusiveness and effective differentiated learning actually enhance the overall educational experience. As an experienced educator myself, I hope more day schools learn from the SASSDS example.
This is a phenomenal school on all levels. Both the secular and Judaic curricula are top-notch. There is a new math and science curriculum. They are serious about being inclusive of kids with special needs. In the fall of 2007, the school will move to a beautiful new facility, conveniently located off Rte. 1 in Norwood.
