Solomon Schechter School Of Queens Home

Our Mission

A unique education unfolds at the Solomon Schechter School of Queens, a Conservative Jewish day school serving children from pre-school through eighth grade. Students engage actively in high level learning  in a comprehensive curriculum offering challenge alongside personalized support preparing them for success in high school, college, and careers.  They are immersed in modern Hebrew, delve into the wisdom of our Torah, and experience robust Jewish life. With pride in our multicultural and multilingual student body, united by our Jewish heritage, we support our children to embrace diversity with the strength and confidence acquired through a deep understanding of Judaism. Innovation, creativity, and service to others are hallmarks of our approach. We foster entrepreneurial problem-solving, community engagement, and compassionate global thinking. Building lifelong ties among our children and families, we inspire commitment to the American Jewish community, the United States, the modern State of Israel, and the wide world beyond.

Sixth Grade Chumash

Ms. Ben-Harari's sixth grade Chumash class has been studying Parashat Yitro and the monumental task Moshe had in judging all the Israelites. Yitro, Moshe's father-in-law, suggested that he appoint judges to help him advise the people. This became the foundation of the judicial system. Yesterday, we were very fortunate to have Mrs. Shulman visit the class and discuss the court system and how it parallels the system of judges Moshe established. We extend a special thanks to Mrs. Shulman for taking the time to come and speak with us.

Google's Visit to SSSQ and Our First Venture into Augmented Reality

Two weeks ago we had an exciting visit from Google. Google is currently piloting a software for Augmented Reality in school. Augmented Reality or AR is a technology which allows objects be placed in the classroom which can only be seen through a device. Google visited and transformed our Science Room and our Computer Lab into expeditions for our students. Students used activities that were developed to connect to what they are currently learning about in their classes. It was a great experience for all our students.
