  • 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.

  • 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.

Global Cardboard Challenge

What a magnificent day Schechter4-8th graders and faculty had this past Monday. All the students participated in the Global Cardboard Challenge. What does that mean? It means we filled the gym with cardboard of all shapes, and thanks to Puritan Furniture we had two truck loads of HUGE cardboard delivered to our doors.
