Meet the Director of Admissions and Development 

I am pleased that you are interested in learning more about The Shlenker School.

As a premier private Jewish Day School, we are known for providing Early Childhood and Elementary School students, 6-weeks through 5th grade, with an exceptional academic education, an integrated secular and Jewish curriculum, and a nurturing environment. Our child-centered approach ensures that we create passionate, lifelong learners. 

We provide our students with the strong academic foundation they will need to succeed along their educational journey. Our experienced and highly professional teachers are committed to providing students with the best education possible. Our graduates consistently leave Shlenker as effective communicators, competent problem solvers, self-directed learners, quality producers, responsible citizens, and knowledgeable Jewish students who care about the world around them and give back to their community.

In addition to exploring our website, I also encourage you to visit our school to see for yourself why so many families choose the warm community that is The Shlenker School. To schedule a visit, please contact me at or 713.270.6127. We look forward to welcoming you!
