Schechter Manhattan, a K-8 Jewish day school on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, announced today the launch of a new name, logo and website. The school, opened in 1996 by a consortium of local Jewish leaders, has been formally known until now as The Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan. The new shortened name, Schechter Manhattan, and the new logo, unifies the school’s brand with the name it has long been called within its own community. The school’s website, www.schechtermanhattan.org, has also been updated to showcase the school’s rigorous, student-centered, inquiry-based Jewish education.
The new logo features waves of color moving from light to dark blue, as well as the image of a shofar. The logo and updated website convey elements of the school’s educational approach: a commitment to students’ growth and development, the cultivation of their abilities to see from multiple perspectives, and a Jewish call that is at the heart of the school’s mission.
Schechter Manhattan’s mission:
Schechter Manhattan is located at 805 Columbus Avenue (between 99th and 100th Streets) and offers students a learning community where they are celebrated for all of who they are and encouraged to pursue their passions. Winner of the Blackboard Award for Excellent Elementary School in NYC in 2016, the school balances academic rigor with personal exploration, offering a curriculum firmly rooted in the 21st century, focused on research, writing, presentations, collaboration, and self-reflection. The school has a consistent track record of placing students in the best public and independent high schools in New York City.
For over 20 years, Schechter Manhattan has been at the forefront of innovation in Jewish day school education, implementing unique programs as the Tzedakah Round Table, the Lieberman Family STEAM Center and the Racial Diversity and Inclusion Initiative.
