Student Services

One of the hallmarks of the Schechter Westchester community is our commitment to the individual student. We believe that all children can and want to learn. 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.

We believe that each of our students is entitled to a high quality, academically rigorous Jewish education that celebrates the uniqueness of the individual. The richness of our kehilah is strengthened by the talents, gifts, and challenges of each member. Students’ school and personal success is enhanced by strong family-school collaboration. We value and encourage parental perspectives on children and the issues families face with their own children.

The student services department fosters an understanding of the many specific characteristics that affect learning to optimize outcomes. We incorporate an understanding of the many aspects of psychology which promotes a safe, caring, and respectful environment inside and outside the classroom. We know each of our students as individuals with their own passions and needs, and work to provide an academically, emotionally, and socially engaging, challenging, and supportive program for each child.

We believe that all children can and want to learn. Our task is to use information about the whole child and harness the resources of our faculty to help each student grow and meet his or her potential while navigating the challenging world of adolescence. Along those lines, our department serves as a liaison between home and school, integrating the powerful and unique perspective that a student’s family contributes to our overall understanding of a child.

As professionals in the school, our practice is guided by our professions’ ethical, professional, and legal standards and regulations.

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.
