Schechter School of Long Island Reviews

What I loved about Solomon Schechter Upper School is that it's more than just a school,it's a family.Whether you are a student,teacher,parent,or staff member, you're able to experience the incredibly "homey" feeling and are a part of the community.Schechter's family is its greatest support system,there's no such thing as every man for himself.At Schechter,students get both a strong secular and Judaic education,and are able to converse in three different languages.At Schechter,failure isn't an option.Every student that graduates from Schechter leaves with a strong head on their shoulders and the ability to change the world.Schechter alumni are successful in every field of study and work they enter.One thing I would change at Schechter is the lack of participation in clubs and after school activities.Since the school has commuters that commute from an hour away every day,it's very hard to be a part of clubs and activities at Schechter.Schechter is an incredible school!

Our Jewish private school has gone under many renovation to try and improve it, but it has made it worse. Both high school and middle school share the upper level along with classrooms that divide in half with little soundproofing. This leads to very unproductive classes and a bad environment for test taking. Along with the small class rooms the 6-12 grade must share one boys and one girls bathroom which ends up a mess by the end of the day. The breakfast and lunch food aren't the best quality and the line can last forever. Teachers care a lot about you but forget that you have work in other classes as well so you can end up with 3 tests in one day plus 2 projects due the next. Also the k-5 are all downstairs and dismissal can be a mess.
Schechter is a special place that brings people together with varying degrees of observancy and everyone is truly accepted. The education is very impressive; our high school students are placing in top spots in national competitions and getting accepted to top colleges. As a parent of lower school children, I am very pleased with the education my children have received thus far, and excited for them to enter middle school/high school.
I encourage someone looking for high quality Jewish education for their child to speak with our admissions department and ask to be put in contact with current parents and/or parents of recent alumni. The Schechter School of Long Island features small class size and stellar academics-- the perfect place for children to thrive.
