Citizenship Program

Celebrating Our Differences

At all grade levels, Shaker Road School students study monthly citizenship themes, which teachers and advisors integrate into academic and social learning. The core of the Citizenship Program includes 18 citizenship themes that have been carefully selected to comprise the skill-sets necessary for students’ successful growth. These universal themes help students reflect on their own characters and strengthen the school community. By Fifth Grade, students begin working in advisory groups to understand the themes through daily discussions. In addition, students have the opportunity to exhibit their knowledge of these themes during academic classes, co-curricular activities, field trips, and school meetings.
