Parents play an important role in the day-to-day life of the School. Voluntary parent participation in a wide range of school activities has its roots in Shady Hill’s origins as a parent-owned cooperative.

Although no longer a parent-owned cooperative, parent volunteers are involved in the life of the School in a variety of ways: serving as board and committee members, being Class Parents, leading parent-initiated groups, organizing fundraising and other community events, helping with tasks in the library, and welcoming and guiding prospective families and other visitors to the School. In addition, every parent is a member of the Shady Hill Corporation, which is presided over by the Board of Trustees.
