More than academic strength.

The strength of identity.

Ignite. Educate. Empower.

Children love it here. They love their teachers and friends, their learning explorations, their celebrations big and small, and so much more. Solomon Schechter is a place where students are known and nurtured by a caring community that accompanies them and their families on a lifelong journey.

Our graduates consistently rank among Chicago's top high school students.

At Solomon Schechter, we fuse challenging, research-based curricula in disciplines from language arts, math, and science, to Hebrew and text study to give each child an exceptional education. Guided by a comprehensive philosophy of higher-order thinking, our award-winning faculty continues to use the most innovative approaches to teaching and learning.

Exploring what it means to be Jewish.

We believe Jewish Studies is more than learning Hebrew and celebrating holidays. At Schechter, students apply morals to concepts as they analyze the Torah and other primary texts. They learn how religious studies connect with literature, science, and everyday life. Our students find the inner strength that comes from knowing who they are, and who they want to be.
In three words, Schechter is community, learning, and Judaism. Schechter is the type of community that promotes friendship, leadershipship, 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.
