Shorewood Hills Elementary

Shorewood Hills Elementary is affectionately known for our diverse international student population. Many of our 450 4K-5th-graders are worldwide citizens. Approximately half of our students reside in Eagle Heights or University houses, the other half live in the Village of Shorewood Hills, the city of Madison or a neighboring city. We take tremendous pride in our culturally diverse demographics and utilize a Welcoming Schools approach to creating a respectful and supportive environment to embrace family, student, and staff diversity and prevent biases so we can all engage in meaningful learning.

Welcome to Shorewood Hills Elementary

“The Little United Nations”

Our students experience high academic achievement through the combination of high educational standards and a wealth of cultural resources. Our staff is dedicated to challenging every student academically in an environment that is child-centered, safe, culturally responsive and supportive of learning. Our goals are to ensure that every student actively engages in the learning process to become a happy and productive member of a global society.
