Where do I begin? Small class size because no one goes Dirty old school Feeble Jewish curriculum Nothing for special ed. Very horrid for different leathers. The academics are sub par Very little good to say. Liked parents and kids Disgusting old grounds Switched son to yeshiva which was weird for me bc I'm not practicing Also gave up expensive Jericho taxes public schools If this is future of conservative Jewish Ed we are in trouble I also was turned off by lack of male staff Do we need all female rabbis to make a point?

Outstanding educational experience with very high standards. Small class sizes that focus on individual needs and growth of students. Extended days allow students to spend half the day learning English subjects and half the day learning Hebrew and Judaic studies. The school alerted me about OT needs of my child and assisted me throughout entire process. School even worked with me to get summer services for my child so that my child will not fall behind. Students are educationally stimulated and challenged in all areas and are physically active. Students do not sit in a classroom all day long; they move around. Huge gym and outside play area. The library is even set up for children to "hang out" quietly. The arts and sciences are strongly emphasized and all children participate. There is a student-run garden. The school also composts and recycles. The teachers and staff truly know how to make learning fun. I especially love that there is a very strong focus on community service, student participation, self-awareness, and awareness of global events. Teachers and staff are always responsive and attentive by phone, email and in-person meetings. Most parents are very involved.

The children receive a well rounded education with smaller class sizes and more attention paid to all students. The children learn how to respect their teachers and fellow students from a young age and it carries over for their entire academic learning. Strong friendships are developed and remain for years to come after graduation.

The best thing about this school (besides the kids of course) is our staff- the teachers are so caring, professional, and want our children to thrive to be the best that they can be. Our principal and assistant principal are creative, hands on, and open to new ideas all the time. This attitude permeates through to our students who feel open to explore, be creative, and are excited to learn.

Solomon Schecter of Nassau County instills a love of learning in every aspect of school life. The school is filled with people who are warm, caring, friendly and excited to teach our children in innovative ways. We always tell other people-- if your children are not at SSDS your children are truly missing out.
