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.
Great school, involved staff, and super spirit! The kids are great here. The harmonious atmosphere her makes my child happy and well rounded.
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.
Shelyn has a supportive PTA that can beat all. Shelyn has a great, encouraging principal and parents. Students are all fun-loving and interactive.
The teachers care they talk to and with the students not at them. Great job.
I love it because the teachers and students are great and wonderful.
The teachers are great and friendly. My child learns so much every day.
Shelyn is a very wonderful family friendly environment, the teachers are wonderful and keep the parents very informed and involved in what is going on the classroom. I love shelyn...
All staff members are kind and concern about each student. Teachers are very experienced. We just love to send our girl to Shelyn.
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.
Shelyn is a great school. The principal and the teachers are always very helpful. They are really committed to educate our children.
I am glad my kids stay in Shelyn and didnt go to diamond bar or walnut. I feel safe to send my kids to Shelyn. Most teachers have high quality of teaching. Not only acadamic but also in all areas. They are friendly and very very very nice. Love them!
