Faculty and staff are caring and welcome our entire family, including children not yet in school. Parents have choice between traditional kindergarten and multi-age (half K, half 1st grade in same room) I've been pleasantly surprised by how well the multi-age has worked for our daughter. Teacher makes meaningful measures of academic growth. Plenty of opportunities for parent volunteers.

I feel so fortunate that my child's first years in school will be spent at Shannon. The warm, child-centered environment is evident from the time you step in the door. It is nice to have a choice between a traditional classroom and multi-age. We chose multi-age for our child, and it has proven to be a wise choice. My child's teacher has been excellent at fostering a cooperative environment, where the 'olders' help the 'youngers' and everyone can learn at his/her own pace. From my experience, the multi-age teachers are dedicated professionals who are constantly striving to ensure that they are incorporating best practice and engaging their learners through well-designed themes and developmentally-appropriate instruction. Shannon school has definitely started my child's school experience in the right direction! My ratings below are only for the multi-age program as far as teachers, etc. I haven't heard the same about the traditional classrooms.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
