SSDS is a wonderful school. We have 2 children in the middle school. They have been attending Schechter since they were 2 years old. Every year we are so appreciative of the high level of academics our boys receive. The teachers really get to know the students and care about them. The Rogow Middle school is stellar. We are proud to be a Solomon Schechter Day School family.
