My daughter started Kindergarten this year, so far so good. Her teacher Ms. Glenn is great! she keeps the parents informed and makes sure every child is leaving with a familiar face at the gate instead of just letting the children run out. My daughter is also learning so much, she loves to come home and show me what she can do. I also really like that it is a small tight knit school. Seems like everyone knows each other, except us of course because we transferred in! (hahaha) The only thing that I would want to change about this school is the fact that they don't have an after school program :(

Kindergarten homework packets are fair. not too much, but not too little. I am not sure of how the other grades hand out HW.

This year working at Shannon School has been a real pleasure. As a new employee, the principal and staff has made me feel part of the team very quickly. The small family environment has made it easy to get to know the kids and see how much the kids interact with the staff on a level that I have not seen in other schools I have worked in. The kids seem to be happy and as a staff member, they have made me feel welcome to be here also. As the year has progressed, I have seen the parents coming in saying with pride that they are also Shannon graduates. This neighborhood school has been under new principal leadership the past couple of years and the kids seem really be genuinely interested in being here in a learning environment. Student engagement is high, and they show respect and a sence of ownership of the school, which exhibits the student's pride and high morale here at Shannon Elementary.

The principal is horrible.. very impatient with kids... The school needs a better principal... otherwise the school is great... But it is sad that this school will close down :(

What a wonderful and caring school! The staff is friendly, the Pricipal actually listens to the parents & students to get extra help at the school for those in need. A wonderful calm campus, hard working PTA members, flexible staff members who work with parents. Fun events by the PTA but they can use extra help. The Principal could be a professional singer. My kids love everything about the school.

I have a child in 1st grade, and a child in the 6th grade at Shannon Elementary. I find the school to be exceptional and the educational standards and expectations are high which enables the children to perform well.

I have a third and fourth grader that go to Shannon and they have been there since Kindergarten and all the teachers thay have had have been great ! It is crowded but that is because they had other transfer students from a different school come in last yr. But overall great teachers , and principal . He is very much involved with parents and students.

I had a 1st grader and 4th grader. I will NOT be sending my kids for another wasted year. Too many students, they said. So, my 1st class was combined. Reading suffered. Well, my kid didnt get the extra attention they needed. I was very disappointed. No after-school care either
