Careers

Since 1915, Shady Hill, a school of 512 students (PK-VIII) and 90 faculty, has been a leader in progressive elementary education. The year-long Central Subject study, which emphasizes strong content, the use of primary sources, acquisition of essential skills, and self-discovery, forms the core of our curriculum. Grades 3-8 engage in Central Subject, an in-depth, integrated, yearlong thematic  study of a particular time or people in history.  Faculty who teach a Central Subject are responsible for the skills and content in both social studies/history and language arts and with the support of performing arts and visual arts faculty, the integration these disciplines.  Each Central Subject teacher also serves as a homeroom/advisor for 15-19 students.

Shady Hill is a deeply mission-driven school.  We seek to develop independent, joyful and curious learners who respect their own accomplishments and those of others. We strive to be a community whose values are strong and which is unafraid to engage students in important questions.The school’s program allows children to explore their worlds and test their powers.  As a diverse school, we believe that an inclusive community is an educational and moral imperative that empowers us all. Therefore, we seek to hire teachers who share this commitment and demonstrate the skills of culturally competent educators.

Shady Hill School is also a teaching training institution.  Its long-standing Teacher Training Course, which brings as many as eighteen apprentice teachers to campus each year, prepares talented men and women for careers in education and allows each faculty member the opportunity to be a mentor and meaningful contributor to the teaching field.  Because of the school’s commitment to teacher training, the school seeks teachers with certification or demonstrate interest in working towards certification when hired by Shady Hill School.

Shady Hill School actively seeks to forward diversity through its program and hiring.
