For our students in sixth through eighth grades, the Middle School experience imbues a love for Israel and Judaism and a passion for learning.

Our goals are to prepare students for the challenges of High School – academically, socially, and emotionally; to develop core skills in analysis, problem solving, and creative reasoning across subject areas; and to help students become knowledgeable Jewish adults, living fulfilling lives as caring and contributing members of society.

Meet Our Principal
Welcome to Schechter Westchester Upper School!

In our Middle School, students are intellectually challenged and supported as they journey through early adolescence, achieving independence and self-confidence along the way. We emphasize reading and writing analytically, critical thinking, making informed civic decisions, and persuasively presenting and supporting opinions. We look for our students to learn to balance academic and social demands by developing and enhancing their organizational and time management skills.

With the knowledge and skills provided by our Middle School, our students are ready to meet the demanding challenges of High School and beyond. Our days are infused with Jewish thought and practice. As a community, faculty and students together embrace and celebrate our American and Jewish heritages.

B'shalom,

Amy Holtzer
Middle School Principal

These words by Rabbi Yishmael, which reflect the essence of our mission, are found in Pirkei Avot. They advise us to lead lives filled with learning, teaching, preservation of our heritage, and social action.
