SHS is a well kept secret in Rydal, PA. The school has an amazing staff who are truly concerned with each individual student and works with them to reach their highest potential. From math and science to art and music, this school will help your child go further than they could have ever imagined. The parent involvement are second to none. We have a large community of volunteers to create amazing fundraisers, unique programs and events that bring the school family together multiple times a year. I highly recommend SHS to any parent looking to give their child the best of the best.
