    "I have three children. One child is a sophmore, another in the middle school and the third is in the junior school at SSA. These schools are amazing. First in the junior school they begin to mold your chid with a firm foundation for a successful life. The emphasis in K and 1rst grade is to learn to love to read. Every subject you have you must read to succeed. They also had my children writing and publishing books in K and 1rst. They teach children core values which they emphasize on a daily basis and at assembly once a week(Responsibility, Respect, Honesty,Safety and Kindness.) These principles are needed on a day to day basis for people to work and live together. Repetition is the mother of skill and the key to all success. Shadyside has provided all three of my children a road and foundation for success."

    "I currently have a child at the Shady Side Academy Junior School. Working in a field where I get to see firsthand various public school environments in Pittsburgh led to the choice of a private school for my own children. The experience has been a great one so far. The atmosphere at the school is welcoming and calm compared to the choas I have observed at other schools. All of the staff know you and your child by name. Parent involvement in the classrom is welcome and encouraged. The curriculum is phenomenal. Recess and gym still happen daily! I couldn't have asked for a better school experience. It is worth it."

    "I went to Shady Side senior school and recieved an amazing education. I am a freshman in college and Shady Side could not have prepared me more. The faculty is amazing and I have made amazing relationships with students, faculty, and coaches. I enjoyed they school and made some of the best friends I have to this day. I would recomend this school to any parent that is looking to send their child to an excellent public school."
