Shull is the best school in the BUSD. The teachers and staff are absolutely amazing. The principal, Mrs. Horsley goes above and beyond her call of duty and truly cares for each student. I will never send m kids anywhere else. I feel so lucky that my son goes to Shull, where I know he's in a safe and nurturing learning environment.

Your child needs to go here- simply awesome. Great staff, strong class structure, fantastic "kids club" pre & after school care. GATE program is wonderful, too! All schools should be like this!

I am a student and I just love Arma. J. Shull Elementary School. It is so much fun to be in the 5th Grade there. I love all the teachers I have had and Mrs. Horsely. My favorite day of the year is the Walk-A-Thon, but they a lot of fun things throughout the year. I like A.R. a lot because it is challenging and fun at the same time. The students there are really nice. It is a fun place to be.

Wonderful school, friendly and helpful staff, and experienced and dedicated teachers. I brought my son to Shull after speaking to Principal Horsely and the school exceeded my expectations. My son began kindergarten having been retained the year prior from a different school and he blossomed at Shull. My son has gained a new confidence, he's thrived, and loves his school.

Everyone, PTA, parents, teachers and office personnel are very helpful and easy to work with. The principal, Mrs. Horsley is very easy to talk with and has a good and trustworthy ear. She is a person of action. If she says she will do something, she follows through. The teachers I have worked with also have an open door policy and will work with you to help your child to the best of their ability. At Shull Elementary School everyone is very responsive to your child's needs. You will find there is a tremendous amount of volunteers helping the teachers so they can spend more time teaching your children. They support and teach family values, respect, 'Can Do' attitude, and responsibility. Many teachers and parents go beyond the call of duty to help make learning a great experience. The school is highly regarded by Children, Parents and Teachers with a fabulous principal.

We have just finished our 4th year at Shull and we wouldn't want our kids anywhere else. There is great parental involvement and the teachers truly care about the well being of their students. I've seen growth both academically and socially in not only my own children but in their classmates under the guidance of caring and engaging teachers. Shull really is Oceans above the rest!

Shull school has an active parent base and great teachers (for the most part). There are lots of PTA sponsored events to make up for the lack of state funding including field trips, after school programs, monthly family nights, etc. There is a state of the art computer lab and they are in the process of making all classrooms technologically integrated. As with every school there are positives and negatives, but overall I love having my kids there!

Shull is an excellent school. There is a diverse mix of kids. Many of the teachers have been there for ten years or more (some even 30). The principal is caring and I have seen her jumping rope on the playground with the kids and sitting on the grass counseling a young girl who was having a bad day. She is strict but fair and treat student as individuals who are valuable and unique. She has impressed me on many occasions and if I were to have it to do all over again I would send my kids through Shull all over again. The kids are challenged academically and the teachers tutor students in math on Thursdays. The fifth grade teachers put together a Hands on History event for Colonial Days, with help from some dedicated parents and $$$ from their own pockets. The kids had a great time learning.

My children went to this Shull after having been enrolled one year in a private school. I found that my expectations were exceeded at Shull. I am very pleased with the leadership, academic high standards, school uniform policy and parent involvement levels. My daughter was given the opportunity to be involved in the school's honor choir and they got to perform at Disneyland. The high level of parent involvement in this school is encouraging. Both of our children have greatly excelled with their highly motivational reading program.

My kids have attended Shull since Kindergarten and I am very happy with the school. I have found the teachers and principal to be patient, caring and dedicated to helping the children learn. Mrs. Parsons, the principal, can be found in her office, in the classrooms and on the playground just about any day of week. She takes time out to play with, get to know, and encourge the kids. Mrs. Garibay, Mrs. Hampton, and Mrs. Moore are exceptional teachers, I think any child would be blessed to spend time with them.

This school is a big disappointment. The teachers are not creative and appear bored with their jobs. The principal shows up to assemblies, but is otherwise not present. One good thing about Shull is the reading program - it's very good. Every year that my kids are at Shull we hope it will improve, but that hasn't happened. We are pulling our kids out of Shull next year.
