We love our school. My two sons enjoy ALL of the teachers and staff. Mrs. Z is awesome! The building has a wonderful PTO that helps out tremendously! They have a really great PE teacher and my kids love the nature trail. We are very happy with our school.
Shaftsburg Elementary is a wonderful school all the way around. There is a real feeling of community and family. The teachers are caring and do a great job. Parent involvement is evident in the outstanding PTO, which provides numerous 'extras' for the school such as assemblies, field trips, fun evening activities, and yearbooks to name just a few. Shaftsburg Elementary has a solid reputation, and as a parent I couldn't be any more pleased!
We have a new principal now, she had big shoes to fill and is doing an ok job. The teachers that have been around awhile are what makes this such a good school. To bad alot of them are retiring leaving room for inexperienced young book learned teachers to try their ill conceived notions of what motivates a child to learn.
