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.

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 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.

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 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.
