In the days when Nassau County lacked an educational center for Conservative Judaism, a dedicated group of families had a vision, took a chance and started a day school in 1967. The original home of this small, but vibrant and quickly growing school was Temple Beth Sholom in Roslyn.

The need for a Conservative High School in Nassau County united families, rabbis and administrators from day schools on Long Island, as well as Queens. In 1994, the Solomon Schechter High School was born and housed in our middle school building in Hicksville. Schechter High School of Long Island grew rapidly and moved to our Glen Cove Campus, along with our Middle School, in 1998.
