Shaker Heights is a great school district. As a student, I take pride in the quality of the academics and courses offered. There is a multitude of diversity amongst the students, faculty, and staff. The community creates safe environments for all, and there is always a sense of unity and togetherness. There is a great number of extracurriculars, clubs, and activities, as well as classes. I appreciate the teachers, they advocate for students and truly are invested in helping open doors of opportunity. I enjoy that everyone unifies to rally and support one another in times of need. The value of education is stressed and is shown when students come to school eager and ready to learn.

Personally, I've had a very good experience at Shaker Heights High School. All of the teachers I've had have been extremely dedicated and have cared about my succeed and helped me along the way. I've enjoyed all the classes I've taken and felt that they expanded my perspectives and challenged me. Shaker Heights High School is also very diverse. There are many different students with different ethnicities, skin colors, religions and political opinions. Although Shaker is diverse it is segregated. The district could work on inclusion and they do this through SGORR, MAC scholars programs etc.
Shaker Heights is a wonderful, nurturing district that has a lot to offer. The elementary schools are fantastic, and the high school has so many different paths and activities to choose from! From academics to arts, there is a huge amount respect and independence that the students have for themselves and each other. I am actively involved in the arts, and the music and theatre programs are second to none.
