Welcome to a vibrant Jewish Day School where children in kindergarten through 12th grades are encouraged to ask bold questions, confront paradox and discover new connections. Welcome to a school where students see links between Maimonides and mathematics, Socrates and social justice, Torah and technology, anthropology, art and athletics, Hebrew language and history. Welcome to a community where every child feels valued and develops deep empathy, where children develop a powerful unified sense of themselves as Jewish citizens and as leaders, ready to engage the world. Welcome to Schechter.
Located on two campuses, the Elementary School in Jericho, houses grades K-5, where children develop a sense of wonder, where they are encouraged to engage the world through questions, and to examine their surroundings with an open heart and a uniquely analytical mind. Our Upper School, centrally located in Williston Park, houses the Solomon Schechter of Nassau Countys Middle School, serving grades 6-8, where young teens are supported in developing poise and confidence as they take on academic and intellectual challenges, while exploring their own individual identity and the meaning of authentic Jewish community. The Upper School also houses the Solomon Schechter High School of Long Island, a regional college preparatory school serving students in grades 9-12, where an inquiry-based approach stimulates critical thinking and remains a cornerstone of true academic excellence.
