About Us



  • Develop independent, joyful and curious learners. Shady Hill School in Cambridge has been a leader in progressive education since 1915.  Guided by our mission, we empower students to be intellectually adventurous and wholeheartedly just.
  • Engage students in important questions. Guide children as they explore their world and test their powers.
  • Be a part of our historical and contemporary commitment to social justice. We believe that an inclusive and equitable community is an educational imperative.
  • Educate differently. Our school employs the Central Subject methodology where students in Grade III-VIII engage in an in-depth integrated study of a particular subject, time or people in history.
