Such an amazing school! Not only is it great with academics, but it is also an amazing social environment to grow up in. It feels as though everyone is one big family. The classroom sizes are small which gives each student more opportunities to ask questions. Unlike most schools, the teachers and students are friends. I would recommend Schechter to anyone! Its a beautiful campus but even more beautiful on the inside.

The school is great. The only problem is drugs, however the drug problem at Schechter, while prevelant, is not nearly as bad as it is at most other schools- public or private. The academics are wonderful, and the school has a great reputation with colleges. In addition, atheletics are really pushed at Schechter, and so are elective courses, clubs, and an array of other activities. Students come from all over- from Westchester, Orange, and Rockland counties in New York, Bergen County in New Jersey, and Fairfield country (mostly from Stamford and Greenwich) in Connecticut.

Not only is the Solomon Schechter School on the highest level of Hebrew,(the children speak fluently early on), it also has an amazing art and music department. The Director of Music, Jonathan Cahr has CD's available! After school activities like Hip Hop are run by famous teachers. The community is warm and inviting. Academics are much higher than the local public schools.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. 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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
