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.
