Faculty and Staff are very caring and go above and beyond to help students. They genuinely care and try to identify and solve problems rather than treat symptoms, or worse yet just suspend/expel kids they don't want to deal with like some other schools in the area. Yes, test scores are low, but this is largely (from what I have seen) due to the large hurdles many of the kids face in life outside of school. In part this is economic, but there are a lot of dual language families in the area as well. Teachers seem to be willing to adjust to address the needs of each student, to not leave any behind or let others get bored, and encourage kids to push themselves and learn all they can while still not forgetting that these are kids, and letting them be that too.

This is a wonderful school. It is Montessori based and teaches the children about independence, and learning to care for others and the environment around them. The Principal and Teachers are wonderful...very patient, communicative, and creative. My child has learned so much and loves attending school. I can't thank the school enough for the attention my child receives and their commitment to his education and social skills. I love the diversity and parent involvement.

This school, is not good at all. I went there last year and for shure i am not prepare for high School. I'm studying and reading things that they didn't teach me.They give to much attention to the bad kids, and they sometimes treat you like if your a bad kid. They have this shark badge, it's verry dum. but oh will. I will never send the my kids to that school.

Shaw is a school with a strong educational leader, dedicated teachers and staff, and a strong focus on academics, behavior, and cooperation. A great school where your child will thrive.
