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

    - 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
  • 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
  • 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

Schechter Shavua: June 7, 2022

It is hard to believe we are wrapping up the school year! Teams have been celebrating milestones over the past few weeks; learn about some more of those celebrations in Early Childhood and Rimonim. Middle schoolers are performing dissections to study ecosystems and 8th graders are developing healthy exercise habits to take them to high school and beyond. And a hearty mazal tov to the Schechter Class of 2018 who are graduating high school! Lastly, we wish Habonim student Lillian (grade 7) luck as she leads her crew boat in the US Rowing Youth National Championships in Sarasota, Florida!


Schechter Shavua: May 31, 2022

We are so proud of Illy, a Habonim 6th grader, for taking her passion for poetry to a broader audience: she was recently awarded third place in the West Hartford Public Library’s poetry competition! Read her moving poem, plus learn about the K-1 students’ beautiful beginning of their Jewish journeys and our Middle School thespians’ performance of Tinker Bell. There are so many great things to celebrate at Schechter!
