Shady Hill School Reviews

3 reviews
I really like Shady Hill! The teachers really strive and do what they can to help you. Sports are required for all of the trimesters. I found that being in a sport helps you get to know more kids and even students in different grades. Also, they have a big arts program which allows for kids to do what they want.

Shady Hill School is a place that deeply values community. It is a school where every student is important and any problems are immediately addressed. The campus is a wonderful place to be, moving between classes outdoors, even on a rainy day, is always enjoyable. And the teachers are the most phenomenal individuals, even years after graduating they still remember their students and they are always kind, considerate, and passionate about the subjects they teach.
I found my time a shady hill amazing, but what really stood out were the teachers. I still can't go back and remember my favorite because I loved them all. For someone who wants more than just learning math, Shady Hill is perfect. They really make learning fun.
