Gross Schechter Day School has been enriching young Jewish minds for over 25 years. Our success has led to phenomenal growth in the school’s enrollment. In just four years, Schechter has grown from 275 to 333 students – our largest enrollment in history. Our state-of-the-art campus combines comfortable modern facilities and the latest technologies to enhance active learning and allow for the school’s continued growth and advancement.
Schechter delivers the quality you would expect from a top-tier private school. Our students are repeated award-winners in regional and statewide math, science, engineering, English and geography competitions. Many of our graduates enter advanced programs in private and public high schools, become effective student leaders, and attend some of America’s best colleges and universities. High school counselors and teachers at private and public high schools routinely commend the academic strength of Schechter graduates.
Schechter teachers participate on local and state curriculum committees, and some have been selected by the governor to serve on blue ribbon panels. They have won more community wide awards than any other day school faculty.
Each of our five educational administrators have an average of two master’s degrees each and 20 years of experience and are well known and highly respected in the community.
We are also a strong community that brings families together for fun, learning and friendship. Our students and families feel connected to one another, as well as to the broader Schechter community. Our community is built from families from all walks of life.
Schechter is dedicated to providing an outstanding education in an engaging empowering environment where boys and girls learn and participate fully and equally.
