SSDS is a community of students, families, educators, donors, and volunteer leaders who support each other through times of joy and sorrow, forging life-long bonds of friendship based on a shared commitment to each other and to Jewish life and learning.
As Jews, we are all responsible for one another. This sense of responsibility begins with, and extends beyond, our SSDS community and includes giving tzedakah and improving our world.
A Jewish life is a joyous life. SSDS provides a joyful learning environment for children, families, and educators. Jewish holidays and life cycle events are an opportunity for everyone to come together to celebrate and experience the richness of Jewish life.
Through Hebrew language education and immersion in Israeli culture, SSDS personalizes for its students the American Jewish connection to Israel, instilling a passionate, lasting commitment to, and a sense of responsibility for, the State of Israel.
SSDS welcomes and partners with parents to encourage and support their children and families throughout their Schechter journey. We also promote a love of learning in our students, and create opportunities for children, parents, families, educators, and volunteers to engage in life-long learning and growth.
SSDS values the uniqueness and worth of every individual. Our school emphasizes respect, dignity, inclusiveness, and compassion. We nurture the health, safety, and well-being of every member of our community.
SSDS is committed to providing an education that weaves the best of General studies and Judaicstudies in an integrated program that is the benchmark against which Jewish day school programs are measured.
