Curriculum & More

Schechter Westchester is a warm and caring environment where students are invited to think creatively and analytically from the day they walk into their kindergarten classroom. Our dual curriculum enables students to think critically in two languages and provides them with a strong foundation in both secular and Judaic studies. From academic classes to holiday celebrations, to experiential learning and nurturing of body and soul, our students gain a breadth and depth of knowledge and are infused with a strong sense of pride as they explore their Jewish and American heritage.

Curriculum


Each of our divisions is a community within a community, both in and out of the classroom. Our halls are infused with core Jewish values, a love of learning, and a joyful spirit. We celebrate our students’ successes and build on their strengths, supporting them to achieve ambitious academic goals. We are committed to excellence in both general and Judaic studies.

Student Services


We know our students as individuals with their own passions and needs, and we work to provide an academically, emotionally, and socially engaging, challenging, and supportive program for each child. Our task is to use information about the whole child and harness the resources of our faculty to help every student to grow and meet his or her potential as she or he navigates the challenging world of childhood development.
