  • We are beyond thrilled with the rigorous secular education, the community and the spiritual values our children are being taught.

    - Jill, Parent
  • As Reform Jews, we were nervous about the religious aspect, but at Schechter, you are free to practice your religion as you see fit. We don't feel different than and we don't feel any pressure to be "more religious". At the same time, we respect those that are more observant than us and love that there is a place for everyone.

    - Jill, Parent
  • Schechter shaped me into the person I am today. All of the teachers really reinforced the idea of respect, love toward Judaism, and being a good person.

    - Maddy, Class of 2014
  • Each week when I read the Friday newsletter I feel great. It makes me proud of what our school, our students, and our faculty and staff accomplish each and every day.

    - Jessica, Alumni Parent, Board Chairwoman
  • I am a proud alum of Schechter and cannot begin to measure the impact it has had on my life. Unlike any other school, Schechter has a focus on high-level thinking and advanced academic skills that go beyond the classroom, but in daily life.

Schechter Shavua: June 7, 2024

As the 2023-2024 school year comes to a close, we reflect upon the academic, spiritual, social-emotional, and creative growth that occurred for our students. Early Childhood students culminate their year with a project inspired by their interests and passions. Fifth and sixth graders build upon their research to replicate elements of a Medieval society, while seventh and eighth graders learn the importance of learning from their mistakes through engineering feats. Kindergarten students begin a journey of spiritual learning and reflection that will continue through eighth grade and beyond. Read about all of these pieces, and see photos from the exciting 8th grade vs. faculty basketball game! Have a wonderful summer, and we look forward to the 2024-2025 school year!


Schechter Shavua: May 24, 2024

We’ve been making great use of Schechter’s new Scott Shoham z”l Memorial Makerspace since it was dedicated earlier this year. Learn about Alim’s Shark Tank project that turned students into detectives and engineers as well as the Anafim Text to Textiles program that synthesized Jewish learning with a hands-on textiles project. Plus, our 8th graders have returned from Italy, filled with new knowledge of Italian Jewish history and a deep appreciation for homemade pasta! Learn about the great things happening at Schechter, as well as what Rabbi Yoni Berger has to say about Parashat Behar.
