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

  • 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
  • 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 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: October 6, 2023

We have had a beautiful week of Sukkot celebrations, after the holiday got off to a rainy start over the weekend. This issue explores some of the ways that students have delved into the holiday: a MakerSpace Sukkot Challenge, multiage collaboration to decorate the school, and community-building Sukkot activities sponsored by Schechter’s Parent Association. Plus, you’ll catch a photographic glimpse of so many other aspects of the holiday!


Schechter Shavua: September 22, 2023

One of the great things about a Schechter education is that students learn that Judaic Studies does not necessarily have to be learned or practiced in isolation from other subjects. In this issue, we follow Middle School and Kindergarten students as they synthesize MakerSpace, science, and math along with topics related to Rosh Hashanah.
