The school has a consistent track record of placing students in the best public and independent high schools in New York City.
Schechter Manhattan is dedicated to growing the academic, emotional and social development of each of their students, emphasizing both collaborative and strategic thinking.

Jewish living and learning helps us to reach our goals and continues to compel us towards communal engagement.”
