Shaker Heights City School District Reviews

8 reviews
All Categories
Shaker Heights is a very diverse community with people from all over the globe and from all cultural backgrounds. The school is extremely diverse in terms of race, culture, and social economic status. Students and staff are welcoming to new ideas, and are interested in learning more about the global community. The school offers a diverse range of outside of school activities, sports, and classes throughout the school year. The school is always trying to introduce new programs and ideas. Staff are motivated to teach and help students whenever they need, and the atmosphere is one of progress and understanding. However the down fall of the school system is the increase violence and crime in the community which carries over to the schools. However the schools are doing their best to keep every student safe and provide education so that the violence in the schools decrease. My overall experience in the schools was very positive; I am proud to say I graduated from Shaker Heights.

I love how the district is set up, with different elementary schools, an intermediate and middle school, all feeding into the high school. The curriculum is competitive with ANY private school. Children are required to play instruments at the start of the 4th grade which allows them the opportunity to play for the high school band which is the largest in the state, even the colleges. I wish that the lower grade personnel had more diversity training.
I recently graduated from Shaker Heights High School and my Shaker experience is something I wouldn't trade for the world. I came to Shaker in sixth grade from Catholic school. Never had I been in a place so diverse and so committed to its students, with so many opportunities to get involved from sports to clubs. I feel that Shaker has more than prepared me for college and life. They allowed me to grow as a student and as a person.
