"Give your best everyday and your best will come back to you!"


We believe a child who feels valued is successful and engaged. As a school that embodies the diversity of our country and county, the vision of SGMS is to cultivate a community of empathetic, adaptable and inclusive lifelong critical thinkers, confident in their skills to pursue whatever path they want in their life, and steadfast in their commitment to being leaders of equity.


Shady Grove is a joyful place, where all students are valued, celebrated, and seen in our curriculums.   In order for each student to achieve academic success, we will evaluate our lessons through an equity lens; and strive for meaningful progress and growth.
