The teachers are wonderful and the new principal, Karen Reynolds, is amazing! Ms. Reynolds cares so much about the children, her families and her staff. She is so extremely dedicated. We are so lucky to have her here. This is such a great neighborhood school and it is just getting better and better under her leadership!
Ms Martinez is a great teacher,respected and loved by the kids. She really knows how to get the students involved and focused on learning. Short Avenue has the best teachers, we are very happy with my son progress!
Great school. Our children LOVE going to school!
This year in Mr. Schieneman's class they are doing classroom economy.
It's a simple classroom economic system based on the idea that students need to earn school "dollars" so that they can rent their own desks.
My child is learning financial responsibility, having a lot of fun too!
This is a neighborhood school - and we like this aspect of it very much. We met a lot of great parents. If you live in our community- definitely come to the food truck night- at the front of the school. The poster with a time and date hangs on the fence facing Short Ave. My daughter is active in a girl scout troop at the school and I believe there is also a boy scout troop with active schedule and camping.
I definitely recommend our school to parents who live in our neighborhood.
Short Avenue Elementary is an amazing neighborhood school. The teachers are incredibly devoted and go above and beyond for each child. My daughter would never have received this much attention at a larger school.
