Coming from a private school we were VERY impressed! Very hands on principal, and staff! Our child has excelled and loves her school!

I have been very pleased with this school. After coming to this school from one that does not care about their students or parents input, I can say that these teachers and the administration cares about it all. The parents are wonderful. I have never seen such parent involvement. Any concerns or questions that I have every had have been addressed either by the administration or the teacher. I am very impressed. I currently have a 2nd grader and a 5th grader at Shadybrook. My oldest son attended Shadybrook as well, he is now on the 7th grade. All three of my children absolutely love Shadybrook.

Many parents I know are unhappy with the school due to the administration. He has made it next to impossible for the teachers to do their jobs due to micromanagement. The morale at the school is very low even though EOG scores are high.There are teachers who maintain standards and care about the kids. There are also teachers who do not. They completely lack in the ablilty to teach and do not care. If your child is having a problem, it will do you NO good to go to him for help. A teacher has even had to apologize to a PTA's little boy for "pulling a card" because the PTA mom wanted it. What a way to undermine the staff.

I have mixed feelings for Shadybrook. I have a daughter in first grade and her experience has been wonderful. I have a son in third grade. I am not happy with the negative comments written on his papers and that he comes home and shares with me. I feel he is excessivly disiplined for actions that are by no means wrong. It saddens me that my happy go lucky kid comes home from school upset and bitter, two to three times a week. I want my children to have a positive experience as well as a good education and currently the education is decent but I can not wait for the experience to be over!

I have a child there right now and the teachers and other staff are wonderful it something you thought you could only dream about. Even the special teachers are wonderful. They all give there students the push they need to make there life a success. The parents here are pretty good. The PTA stays on top of everything and is a great support for the school. I can only say why pay for Private when you got Shadybrook!

I just moved to the area and my son goes to the school and I love his teacher who goes that extra mile with him. I love the fact that each teacher there seems to really care about the children there and they make sure that they get what they need to better their education.

I have one child that is in Shadybrook. He really enjoys the school. He loves his teachers. My daughter went to school there two years ago and she also loved the teachers.

This is my son's 2 year in this school and I have had a good experience so far with no complaints. Though it is out of the school's hands, I do wish that there were sports that the children can get involved in without having to go to recreation center.

Posted August 25, 2003

This is a GREAT school! Our child had moved from what was considered the number 1 school in Guilford County to Shadybrook 2 years ago. It was the best move we could have made. Shadybrook teachers prepare the children very well for their EOG's without a lot of pressure that we felt at the other school. The principal, Mrs. Collie is outstanding!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
