For ten decades, Shady Hill, a school of approximately 500 students (B-8) and seventy-five full- and part-time teachers, has been a leader in progressive elementary education. The year-long central subject study, which emphasizes strong content, the use of primary sources, acquisition of essential skills, and self-discovery, forms the core of our curriculum. The school’s program allows children ...to explore their worlds and test their powers. We seek to develop independent, joyful, and curious learners who respect their own accomplishments and those of others. This same philosophy guides our curriculum in mathematics, science, world languages, physical education, and the arts.
We strive to be a community whose values are strong and which is unafraid to engage students in important questions. As a diverse school, we believe that a varied and inclusive community is an educational and moral imperative that empowers us all. Therefore, we seek candidates who demonstrate a commitment to working in a diverse community.
