My son has attended this school for 4 years now it is a fabulous school. He needed extra help with his reading due to an eye condition and the teachers worked with him to get him up to speed over a period of two years. I would recommend this school to any parents looking for placement. The PTA here is fabulous they do such great work at this school. The staff here are top notch.

I love this school. My child has attended this school for a few years and I can proudly say this is one of the best elementary schools in the county. It's like a private school without the tuition fees.
I attended this school 1998-2004 K-5. I remember quite distinctly being terrified my first day of Kindergarten but I suppose that's expected. I loved it otherwise and have very fond memories of the field trips friends I made and the school itself. I hope not too much has changed because children deserve to enjoy the experience I did. This school was a big part of my childhood (a period of time I often miss) and was coincidentally the only school that I didn't hate going to. I can't speak for everyone of course but to any parents wondering where to send their children to begin their career as a student I'll bet many of them will eventually be grateful that you chose Shady Hill.
Wonderful attention to teaching personal responsibility and values. It has been nice to experience the 'we truly care' environment Shady Hill conveyed.
My child has been a student at Shady Hill for 2 years and we love it! Mrs. Ely and Mrs. Cress are wonderful. Mrs. Andrews is such a fabulous Kindergarten teacher & you would be lucky to have her as your child's teacher. We are continually impressed with the involvement & care that comes from the staff there. We will certainly miss Shady Hill when we leave. Go Colts!
My child is in Kindergarten at this school this year and we have enjoyed it this far. The staff are friendly helpful and readily available to anyone. My child's teacher is warm & friendly and we feel she cares about each student as ann individual.
Shady Hill is one of the best schools I have seen. All the staff is friendly and very willing to help. My son has trouble reading and they are doing everything in their power to help him catch up to his class. I am kept informed of his progress consistantly. They have also been rated an 'A' three years in a row. I hope they keep up the great work.
