Shady Hill has over 90 full- and part-time faculty members who are deeply committed to their students and to the craft of teaching — and who are themselves lifelong learners. We sponsor a robust professional development program and each year our teachers participate in a variety of school-sponsored professional development activities. These include diversity workshops, classes in support of further graduate degrees, literacy workshops, international travel, learning resources training, art classes, poetry classes, and more.
Our teachers know and appreciate the character of each of their students and strive to bring out each child's strengths and to support their learning challenges. Over 90% of our teachers hold advanced degrees; additionally, several are graduates of our school and of our nationally-known Teacher Training Course (TTC).
