Gross Schechter Day School inspires its students to love learning, become their best selves, and embrace Jewish practice, values, and community in a challenging and encouraging academic environment.
Gross Schechter Day School will be recognized as a leading educational institution in Northeast Ohio, bringing the joy of learning and living Jewishly to our families and their community. Our graduates will make life decisions energized by our traditions, while living in the modern world.
There is a famous quote by Maya Angelou that says “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” This illustrates our experience at Gross Schechter Day School. The teachers, administrators, parents and community made all of us, in the Rothschild Family, feel values and heard. We will forever be grateful for the education and life experiences the school provided.
I credit Schechter’s curriculum for my love of Jewish learning. From a young age, I associated Judaism with fun and an immense sense of pride. I feel lucky to still be in touch with not only the lifelong friends I made at Gross Schechter, but the lifelong mentors I gained from my teachers there.
Beachwood High School and Gross Schechter School have shared a close partnership over the years. As Gross Schechter students transition to Beachwood High School in 9th grade, it is evident that Gross Schechter students have received a strong foundation in mathematics, ELA, science, and social studies. Gross Schechter students quickly find a home at Beachwood High School and thrive in academics, extracurricular activities, and athletics.
It is difficult to put into a few words why we love GSDS so much. This school has been a significant contributor in forming our three wonderful children. It has given them a sense of community, the best friends they will ever have and a strong pride for Judaism. The teachers and lessons they learned throughout the years helped mold them into the successful young adults they are now. My two alumni carry GSDS values with them every day and it is apparent through interactions with peers, teachers and life around them. My youngest who is finishing, I have no doubt will leave prepared for a future in high school as my other two were. Gross Schechter was and is an integral part of raising these children.
