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.
