Very pleased with the school, and their staff. I'm a parent volunteer between two elementary schools in the area, and well the difference between them is like night and day. Mrs. Opacaweitz is a very loving and involved principal, very proud of all her hard work and dedication in the school, it Cleary shows. The kids and their safety is clearly her #1 priority. I feel confident sending my child to school each and everyday, the school staff or duty guards guiding the traffic is a plus for me, they ensure each child goes home to or with the right parents that alone speaks volumes on the involvement with the teachers and students. Campus is kept clean, kids attitudes I must say are amazing especially in this day an age, with all the bullying going on, the children are respectful of one another, and when their not there's a no tolerance policy that I can completely respect. Anytime I have a question the front office staff is on point with their knowledge on the days Bell schedule, or any info that I may need. Their not rude as I have experienced in Jellicks very rude.

I've been associated with Shelyn School for 24 years as a parent, PTA preisdent, instructional assistant, volunteer, teacher for 5 years at Shelyn, and now substituting at Shelyn. The staff is caring and professional, and there is a high standard expected of everyone. My own three grown children attended Shelyn, and are better for it.

My girl is 4th grade in Shelyn. We love Shelyn. Especially we love A10 Mr. Rogers class. He communicates very well by emails. It helps to understand our kid s progress at school and keep us posted today information. Also he leads us to utilize to Web-sites for study at home. Like us for hard working parents, it gives confidence to work with our kid at home.

WOW! 'OUR' school API for 2009 is '905'!!! Why will we want to send our most precious children to any other school? I am so proud of our children's achievement. They could not have done this without the wonderful teachers and the principal at Shelyn. With this strong foundation, I know our children will do just fine in their life. A big 'THANKS' Shelyn Teachers and Mrs. O. :)

I love this school! The children are children and not semi-adults. The principal is smart and beginning additional programs. The teachers are wonderful, and I am especially pleased with the upper grade expectations and quality of the teachers. Great school!

I'm proud to say my daughter attends Shelyn. She's a 2nd grader. She has built such confidence within herself due to the volume of learning she's gained from her teachers. The teachers truly earn satisfaction from knowing they've had a hand in teaching these little minds to develop. The devotion the teachers and the staff at Shelyn is amazing and truly care for the students. Parent/Grandparent volunteers are welcomed and needed. It's a way to learn more about your child's growth and a wonderful way to see the teachers dedication and love of teaching. The Administration & Principle are pleasant to work with and very approachable. The PTA @ Shelyn deserve a big hand for their effort & success in fundraisers that benefit all students in extracurricular activities. Shari Calvelli

Outstanding, dedicated teachers. My three children did very well here because of the high caliber of teaching. I was worried about my children not doing well because I didn't put them in preschool. The education at Shelyn made up for it and my kids have learned a lot. The teachers offer extra challenging work if the children are interested. There is a lot of events and activities that keep the kids happily learning. Very clean school. Safe school. I would highly recommend this school. Administrative staff friendly and helpful. Principal very warm and approachable.
