I am a proud alum of Schechter and cannot begin to measure the impact it has had on my life. Unlike any other school, Schechter has a focus on high-level thinking and advanced academic skills that go beyond the classroom, but in daily life. Inquisitive, kind, and curious alumni come from this school. I am still close with many of my classmates and am incredibly impressed of what our small group has accomplished. This is consistent across all grades and years. From what I understand, the school has gotten even better. In the past two years, a new Math, English, Science, and Hebrew (full immersion, which research shows is incredible for development) have been built based on the most recent and up-to-date research. The school is teaching coding and development, building a maker space, etc. Pretty incredible stuff. I would send my kids here and I am by no means religious.

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.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
