We have three very different children all enrolled at Shaker. All three have had an excellent experience. The teachers are kind and work hard to provide a caring and nurturing environment for each child. Our children are also very involved with sports and they have learned how to manage a school and work balance. There is a very healthy outdoor program as well as the opportunity for children to progress more rapidly through course work if they are accomplished. The class size speaks volumes, you just can't get this ratio elsewhere. I want my child to have a wonderful school experience, to be happy and well rounded. Shaker has been able to provide this balance. There is a cost but it is less than other comparable day schools.
Our eldest was accepted to a prestigious high school recently, we couldn't be happier for our sons accomplishments and also life balance. We looked at a lot of programs and are very pleased with our choice.
This school is a big disappointment, more of a child care center than a school. The curriculum is very weak, and the teachers are average at best. We left the school and my children are challenged more in the public school system. Nice campus but poor academics. Don't be fooled.
