About Us

Our Campus

Shady Hill is situated on an eleven-acre campus in a quiet Cambridge neighborhood. Our tree-lined paths, wetland areas, gardens, and ample grassy spaces encourage exploration and play. 

We have eighteen buildings, including an art, woodshop, and music center; library; gymnasium; science laboratories; an assembly hall; and a number of child-scaled classroom buildings. The look of the campus is that of a little village, with buildings surrounding a green where the community comes together for a number of important school events each spring. Our gray-shingled classroom buildings have porches that invite outdoor reading and gathering during recess and throughout the day.

In fact, our entire campus functions as a classroom. From our youngest to our oldest grades, students explore the flora and fauna of the campus, use the space for representations of thematic and central subject studies, and much more.
