Lower School Life at Krieger Schechter Day School

Our learning environment is designed to ignite students’ curiosity, intellect, and creativity.  At Krieger Schechter Day School we inspire our students to work collaboratively, solve problems critically, and develop thinking skills.  Every classroom exudes the love of learning and passion for Jewish values.

At Krieger Schechter, we believe in educating the whole child.  Academic excellence is necessary and critical, as well as fostering social, emotional, physical, and spiritual development.   In both our Judaics and General Studies programs we prepare students to participate in our community and live their lives with purpose and meaning.  Our Pluralistic approach allows students to self- reflect and cultivate curiosity, which fosters a strong sense of identity. Our mission is to guide students to be able to identify how Judaism fits into their everyday lives.
