  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.

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

    - 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.

Schechter Shavua: May 10, 2024

Our Middle Students learn with both their minds and hearts when they experience lessons through travel! Read about their recent trips to Alabama and Washington, DC! And Schechter ended Passover with a delicious and global perspective: Mimouna! Plus, read Rabbi Berger’s perspective about the seemingly contradictory time between Yom HaZikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut.


Schechter Shavua: April 12, 2024

Energy! It can manifest in many different ways, and Schechter’s got plenty of it to go around. It’s Middle Schoolers learning about chemical and electrical energy through experiments with lemons and potatoes. It’s the excited energy of 4th graders as they play tunes on their ukuleles. It’s the loving energy of visitors on Dor l’Dor Day (Generations Day). And it’s the energy of the Jewish community coming together to celebrate Schechter’s connections to Israel and five dedicated women who help facilitate those ties. Plus, read Rabbi Berger’s thoughts on this week’s parashah.
