Shaker Heights Schools was the first school district in Greater Cleveland and one of only a handful of districts nationwide to offer the International Baccalaureate Program Preschool-Grade 12.

The Shaker Heights Schools curriculum is designed to nurture, educate and graduate civic-minded students who are creative thinkers and skillful problem solvers and who are actively engaged in our global and multicultural society. The District is also proud of its commitment to Inclusive Excellence and educational equity, and, to that end, has focused on creating heterogeneous and inclusive classrooms in Grades 5-8, also known as “detracking.”
