Life at Shaker Road School

A Unique Community – Rich with Traditions

We love hearing from our SRS alumni, and better yet, seeing them in person! Recently, we had a visit from Victoria Chen (SRS ’17, St. Paul’s School ’21, Georgetown University ’25). We've enjoyed reading Victoria's opinion essays in the Concord Monitor over the past couple years. This summer, Victoria decided to spend her summer vacation from Georgetown University creating a podcast titled StarkMarkings. She reached out to Dr. Matt to see if he would participate. According to Victoria, StarkMarkings “aims to explore the assertion that we, as human beings, inevitably experience literature and music within the context of our lives.” In their discussion, they analyzed some of Dr. Matt’s favorites, including Mary Oliver’s "The Summer Day" and music by The Decemberists, Vampire Weekend, The Head and the Heart, and Wilderado. According to Dr. Matt, it was impressive to participate in such a creative project and witness first hand Victoria’s creativity and talents!

Isaiah Saunders (SRS ’14, Tilton School ’18, Bates College ’22) is living his dream of creating films for a living. He works for a Providence production company, Steer Forward, which encourages its employees to complete a passion project as part of a commitment to service. Isaiah has chosen to produce a short video about SRS that he hopes will “embody the core values of what makes Shaker Road School unlike any other place on earth.”

Isaiah spent a day on campus interviewing current students, alumni, teachers, and administrators about what makes Shaker Road School so special. He will now work his magic editing the hours of footage into a short video. We are incredibly proud that Isaiah is pursuing his passions and loves his work. Thank you, Isaiah, for thinking of SRS!

SRS Parent Testimonial

“Small classes allow teachers to work with each child’s strengths and weaknesses, letting them blossom both academically and socially.”


Erin L.

SRS Parent Testimonial

“Commitment to the arts at SRS doesn’t mean that students can’t be committed to other interests, like athletics or robotics and math team–the same kids who excel in those areas are often the ones singing, dancing, and acting.”


Ken and Alice S.

SRS Parent Testimonial

“After SRS, my children’s transition to high school was very smooth because of their preparedness to study independently, ability to exhibit strong study skills, and confidence to meet academic challenges.”

Best Day Ever! Making Memories on Snow Days at SRS
