School Notes

  • The creative fusion of our general and Judaic studies nurtures intellectual curiosity and provides answers - especially to the central question, "What would Judaism say about this "
  • Like other top-tier private schools, our general studies curriculum teaches critical core competencies including math, science, English, social studies and communication skills -- at an advanced level.
  • Our teaching staff is trained to address the different learning styles and abilities of our students in order to meet the educational needs of each child.
  • The Judaic studies curriculum integrates instruction in Hebrew, Bible (tanach), holidays (chagim), prayers (t'fillot), values (arachim), customs (minhagim) and Israel.
  • Students increasingly appreciate the study of sacred texts, opportunities for ongoing spiritual development, and respect for different points of view.
  • Anchored in the evolving ethics and values of Conservative Jewish thought and practice, Schechter gives students a love of Jewish learning, a strong value system, excellent academics, adept study skills, self-confidence, and pride in their heritage as Jews and Americans. This proven foundation facilitates a seamless segue to high school, college and beyond.
