Shaker Heights is nationally recognized as a premier community, defined by the character of its neighborhoods and residents, its access to cosmopolitan amenities, its exemplary educational institutions and its extraordinary housing stock. Just minutes from Downtown Cleveland, Shaker Heights is an inner-ring, tree-lined, streetcar, garden suburb with a consistently excellent school system. Approximately 70% of the city is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
From 1822 until 1889, the area now known as Shaker Heights was home to the North Union Shakers. After the community disbanded, developers Oris and Mantis Van Sweringen (who also developed the Terminal Tower complex in Downtown Cleveland) purchased land that included much of the former Shaker Village.
The Van Sweringens planned a garden suburb connected to downtown via rail, with parks, excellent schools and a nice mix of commercial. Many of the homes in Shaker Heights date back to this early 20th century period. Green spaces in Shaker Heights include the Shaker Lakes and the accompanying Shaker Lakes Nature Center. Also available to residents is Thornton Park, a multi-facility complex with an ice-skating rink and two pools.
Shaker Heights Schools are consistently ranked among the best in the country with over 90% of their students attending college. The current enrollment is around 5,600 students in eight buildings (five K-4 schools, one 5-6 grade school, one middle school and one high school).
Shaker Heights is also home to the well-regarded Laurel School (for gilrs), Hathaway Brown (also for girls), and the University School (for boys).
