The faculty and administrations takes the time and makes the effort to address the needs of individual students. The schools tolerates diversity in personalities and backgrounds yet ensures that students meet the highest academic expectations. The combination of a warm, supportive, safe environment with a fine academic performance has made Solomon Schechter Day School a wonderful experience for my children.

My son has attended SSDS since the 1st grade. Our experience has been stellar. Not only from an academic perspective but from a community perspective. SSDS, staff, students, and other families have been like family to us...and that has been invaluable.

This is a lovely community with absolutely excellent teachers and staff. The kids see adults and other children who live with integrity and they see how crucial it is to be of good character. The academic preparation is rigorous and individualized. We are very happy that we made the choice to send our children to SSDS for elementary school.

This school is a small, Jewish Day School with excellent programs in music, art, Hebrew, and Jewish Studies. We love that it is a language emersion school. Embraces diversity and exploring all cultures and customs. A small school makes it so that each child feels very important and special. Our experience has been very positive.

Small intimate community where the parents and teachers all know each other and are deeply involved with each child's learning experience. The Jewish experience is wonderful and is even more meaningful in the middle of New Mexico where giving a child a Jewish identity is very difficult. We love this place!

My son has had 5 wonderful years at Solomon Schecter Day School. The school has some of the best teachers and staff you'll find anywhere. Solomon Schechter is a gem and my family feels blessed to have been able to send our son there! Thank you!

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
