The Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan, a vibrant and growing K-8 elementary and middle school committed to the principle that the most meaningful and successful learning happens when students are active learners. Our mission is to cultivate textpeople. A textperson is someone who finds meaning in the world through confident, active and skilled learning. We value understanding — scientific discovery, Torah, the arts, worldly experience and knowledge of every kind — both for its own sake, lishmah, and because it grounds our search for significance in the rigorous pursuit of truth. At the same time, the textperson is a mensch, a full person, whose learning and knowledge are grounded in moral sensitivity. We believe as Jews that the act of study is itself of moral significance. To cultivate textpeople, we educate in this spirit, promoting intimate, child-centered learning that is also profoundly respectful of the subject matter. As individuals and as a community, we strive to model this link between learning and menschlichkeit in our classrooms, in our financial aid policy and in all interactions among our students, teachers, parents, and friends.
