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.
This school is about the academics and much more - it is about educating in the true sense of the word
Caring teachers, staff and family community along with a great secular as well as judaic education.
Shechter provids our kids a great foundation for the jewish heritage,personal attenition and a great sense of community.

It gives our children a great foundation on what a real "Mentch" can give to his community, to his country and the world; proud of his Jewish Heritage learning from the words of our sages.
The teachers really care about the kids. Plus, its a small school and the kids get personal attention.
It teaches and encourages our children to learn and live as a community
The Solomon Schechter Day school is at the forefront of providing the foundation of excellence to students grades K 12. The skills acquired at Schechter, both Judaic and Secular help graduates excel at the finest colleges and universities in the nation, and SSDS alumni are responsible, dynamic community members and leaders who achieve in many varied fields.
Great school, small classes. Gives a superior education in secular studies while teaching jewish culture and religious values.
The "spirit" of the school is the community which will sacrafice almost anything so that their children can get the best day school education.
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.
