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.
This school is amazing I attended last year. And now i am in high school and I think that it really prepared me.
Shaw is an amazing school, my children were welcomed and treated very well. The staff there is also great! I love Shaw I wish they went through high school as well! I wanted to mention we are non Latino/Hispanic we are Caucasian.
I'm a former student ('99-'02) and when I went there, I had lots of fun and the teachers were fantastic.
Very happy with the school, the teachers and the before/after school programs. My child has been a student for 3 years and I am constantly impressed with the care and educational opportunities provided! Keep up the great work!
Excellent teacher Ms. Valverde in Montessori. Staff is personable and reliable.
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.
I think it is a really good school. A lot of people think it should become a K-8grade school.It has a lot of good activities in P.E, art, ALPS gifted program Etc. The teachers are great and everyone is nice.
