Join Schechter Manhattan at a Virtual Info Session for prospective parents to speak with and hear from administrators, alumni, and parents of current students on June 4th at 8 pm. Schechter’s core values—a student-centered approach, responsive learning and teaching, and a welcoming, inclusive Jewish community—have made the transition to distance learning easy. Both our teachers and students are adaptive and curious, which means that learning from home has presented exciting new opportunities, rather than challenges.
Students have transformed homes into a joyful extension of the classroom. They’re writing memoirs, designing physics experiments and living museums, and working on Schechter’s annual STEAMFEST, all while using Zoom, screencasts, and other tools to work with their classmates and teachers.
Parents have been thrilled by the opportunity to see how their children are building vital problem-solving and critical thinking skills.
“My children are continuing to thrive even through distance learning because of the engaging, challenging work that their teachers are providing. I have been so impressed at how much they are able to do in subjects like art and science — without the materials they have at school, and using their creativity and ingenuity to make their own shake tables to demonstrate plate tectonics, for example. And it is a pleasure to see their excitement in real time as they do it!”
–Parents of a 3rd and 6th grader
For older students, Schechter Manhattan continues to provide individualized high school and college placement assistance, based on our deep understanding of each student and how they learn best. Students go on to New York’s most prestigious high schools whether they’re Jewish, independent, or public, and leading universities around the world.
Our teachers know how each student learns best, and continually adapt their teaching techniques to ensure every child has what they need to excel academically, emotionally and socially. They are constantly innovating, updating curriculum to thoughtfully address today’s topics while preparing students with the skills they need for a successful future.
