At Schechter, every child is known and understood.

Our Philosophy

Every child matters. Our teachers make sure that each student knows that he or she has unique strengths and abilities. We offer a rich core curriculum with a solid academic foundation.

      • Critical thinking and depth of understanding are common threads that run through our curriculum from language arts to math and science, from Jewish texts to the arts.
      • Early second language acquisition, beginning with our youngest students, leads to Hebrew fluency and opens cognitive pathways to future language learning and increased mathematical aptitude.
      • Through Schechter’s significant investment in technology we differentiate instruction to meet the needs of diverse learners.

 Across the board, we encourage students to develop their strengths and to realize their full potential academically, spiritually, artistically, physically and morally. Parents are our partners in the education of each child.

We welcome parent involvement. Whether participating in a special school program, chaperoning a field trip or serving on a committee, parents join with the faculty and staff in creating a caring community that surrounds our students.


"Every time I walk through the doors and witness the love and commitment, not only of the teaching staff, but also the adminsitration, I know we have made the right decision for our daughter." - Schechter parent
