School Notes:

  • Our mission is to provide an outstanding education in English and Hebrew that inspires a love of learning, celebrates the creativity and achievements of our children andnurtures lives rooted in Jewish tradition and Torah. We hope that our students will become self-confident, compassionate, practicing  Jews and committed citizens who are prepared for the academic and social challenges of the modern world, and who are connected to the Jewish people and the land of Israel. Schechter’s rigorous academic program, dual language curriculum and Jewish values foster critical thinking and a strong sense of Jewish identity. At Schechter, every child is known and understood.
