Our Impact

Shaker Soars to New Heights

Global education and travel have long been part of the Shaker Schools’ experience. We want to help Shaker students expand their worldviews and experience other cultures through international travel. The trips include performance tours, service programs and cultural exchange programs. Read more about our International Travel Endowment Campaign and how it impacts our students.

Lomond Sensory Room

Thanks to our donors, we were able to create a sensory room at Lomond Elementary to provide a safe space with many benefits. It allows students to learn how to self-regulate their emotions, gain control of their bodies and increase their attention span over time. 

Life Size Monopoly

Student’s “Advance to Go” while they learn about finance, money and life lessons. The Foundation supported this project with an enrichment grant for 7th grade Science teacher, Brittany Tonti to increase financial literacy. Read more about this fun project!

SHHS Flex Block in Action at Boulevard Elementary

With the support of the Shaker Schools Foundation, students at the SHHS used their Flex Block time to build a Gaga Pit at Boulevard, and it provides fun and exercise for students of all ages!

Wood You Look at That!

Shaker Heights Middle School 8th graders take a design course focused on woodworking. This hands-on experience is definitely a favorite of our students! The course offering was launched with funding from the Shaker Schools Foundation in the 2021-2022 school year and is a wonderful example of a STEM lab that allows students to explore many technical disciplines.

Wow! This is Won “Dill” ful!

The Foundation is proud to support Mr. Jeremy Bishko’s DILLicious endeavor at Shaker Middle School, where the students use their Design Cycle to investigate food waste and develop ways to reduce it locally, nationally, and globally.
