A warm, diverse, and caring Jewish community

Your child will find a home at Solomon Schechter Day School, where we welcome students and families from all Jewish backgrounds. We recognize that many Jewish families are on a journey, and we provide opportunities for families to learn and grow together. 

While all families have their own reasons for choosing Schechter, there are many factors that distinguish Schechter as an exemplary, award-winning school. Take a look at the short videos below to get a glimpse into daily life at Schechter and to answer the question, Why Schechter?

In three words, Schechter is a community, learning, and Judaism. Schechter is the type of community that promotes friendship, leadership, learning, fun, and most of all the love of being Jewish. Each day when I walk into school, I am greeted. Whether it's a security guard, a parent, a teacher, and sometimes even a student, I know that I'm starting my day in a community way.
