Biographical/Historical Note:  In 1973, Rabbi Harry H. Epstein and the visionary leaders of Ahavath Achim Synagogue dreamed of a Conservative Jewish day school that would embrace the core values of Judaism in a nurturing, compassionate and stimulating environment.  They envisioned a school with a reputation for academic excellence. Thus, the very first campus, housed at the Ahavath Achim Synagogue, was founded. 

In 1987, the school moved to a new location in the metro Atlanta area of Sandy Springs. The building was originally a Fulton County school, then called Underwood Hills Elementary.  The Epstein School later purchased the building and underwent plans for renovation and expansion.  The school's mascot is the eagle.  In 2005, Epstein was identified as a United States Department of Education Innovator and is one of only three Jewish day schools in the nation to be honored as a 2004 Blue Ribbon School by the United States Department of Education.

Today, The Epstein School, Solomon Schechter School of Atlanta, is one of the best private Jewish day school in the nation and continually sets new standards for education. The school has dual accreditation from the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS) and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).  The school is also a beneficiary of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta (JFGA), a member of the Atlanta Area Association of Independent Schools (AAAIS), a member of the Partnership for Jewish Education (PEJE), and a member of the Schechter Day School Network.  The Epstein School now serves nearly 600 children from 18 months through the eighth grade.
