My son loves his school. He also loves his resource teachers. He has came along well with his IEP( Individualize Education Program). They offer meetings at any time. The principal responds quickly to matters rather it be an individual or group matter. I have also spotted some employees who are trained in emergency services, however they may not be introduced to have this background knowledge. However, I believe this background skill was a bonus to them being hired.
Many of the teachers here are wonderful! Doing everything they can for their kids. The current principal however has made my experience horrible! I have caught her being less than truthful to me as a parent. She is nothing more than a diplomat completely useless in the running of a school. As happens when any "company" has poor management it seems to be every teacher for themselves. I hate to see this happen as Shadeville was the best of the best when we were growing up but apparently the mighty have fallen.
the teacher's are nice and helpful. the principal and the vice principal rock.
i have had children in shadeville for most of the last 17 years. shadeville has lost alot of my suport due to some really bad changes in the principal leadership. we used to be the school to strive to be. now so many bad decisions are being made by the powers that be that we could be heading us toward anninemitie and financial struggle. because of personal feelings many great, experienced teachers have left and drove away thousand of volunteer hours that gave that extra help to the kids and the teachers who need and deserve it, as well as earning tens of thousand of dollars for new books, computer updates and software and new safe play equipment. unfortunately the others grasping to be as great as us dont have nearly as far to reach.
Shadeville is an excellent school. They use centers of education revolving around letter themes. For instance, this week the letter is P. My son's class is having a pajama party, baking peanut brittle (cooking), planting plants (science) and reading & enacting the story of Peter Pan (reading, story comprehension). They will also have a pizza party for some good fun. The only thing I wish the school would have more concentration in science. They may be forced to when science is introduced to the FCAT.
I can say it all in two words, 'They care.' Shadeville cared about me when I was in elementary school through middle and high school and now as a Criminology Major at FSU. They genuinely are eager to hear of my achievements and help me in anyway. As a student, I was the lucky one to be a part of a school family that 'cares' about kids.
I am in college today because of the ongoing help I have received from the principal and teachers. When someone truly believes in you whether you are 9 or 19 there will be a positive result. I have been blessed to have this association in my life. Shadeville School is #1.
My son loves attending Shadeville. He never complains about going to school. Every person from his teacher to the principal to the janitor make you feel welcome at Shadeville. All of the staff seem so dedicated to learning and they make it fun! I couldn't have wished for a better learning environment for my child than Shadeville. Keep up the good work!
I have been a part of the 'Shadeville' family for over 20 years. My children are now both in attendace there. In my opinion, there is no better school! The teachers/staff are just one great big happy family, they are all outgoing, loving, caring, wonderful people! They are worth their AAAA status! Thanks to the spectaular administrative office staff that Shadeville has, makes it one great big A in my book! Go Warriors!
Shadeville has excellent leadership. Wonderful, dedicated teachers, superb programs and terrific students. One of the very best elementary schools in Florida. AAAA School in every way.
Shadeville is a wonderful elementary school with the exception on the 'politics' put in the school by the administration. Personally I have hated seeing many of the teachers that found Shadeville home leave since the coming of this administration. Shadeville has wonderful teachers and WCSB needs to make sure they are happy and kept there for the kids of Wakulla County...
I am very proud of my daughter's acheivements since being at Shadeville. Parents are involved in the school activities and fund raisers. The staff at Shadeville is awesome too. Keep up the good work.
Shadeville has really been an asset to my family and has really made a difference in my children! We have moved around and been to other schools and Shadeville is the best!
