I transferred to Schechter in 5th grade because I wanted to be challenged more academically and I wanted to be in a Jewish setting. Right from the start my teachers and classmates made me feel so welcome. I love our community, the amazing faculty that has supported me educationally and personally, and learning about and celebrating Jewish life. I am so happy here.

We appreciate the generous assistance provided by the Bernard Heerey Family Foundation Seventh Grade Scholarship Program for our Schechter families.  Solomon Schechter Day School accepts students and parents of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation or gender identity.
