Good enviroment for children and great teachers and the principal is one of ther best. Teachers are interested in teaching not socializing and to me that is a plus for any school. The teachers care about ALL the students and families.
I have had children in Shepherd for 5 years and we have loved it. Last year was a bit of a speed bump with a new principal, but she has been replaced and we're hoping for another great year. The school is getting bigger, the building is expanding, but even with that, there are still GREAT teachers and a good old country feel to the school. Everyone feels welcome and parent involvement has greatly improved over the past couple of years.
My daughter has been attending Shephers for five years. It has been an amazing experience for her and me. The teachers are excellent and she has really learned alot.This is a terrific school.
Shepherd School is a super place to learn. We appreciate the education our child is receiving at this school. We love Shepherd School!
I think Shepard Elementary has its good points and its bad points. Yes they are a school of excellance but all that means is that the children are being prepped very well to take these tests. What about the children's creativity? Is this not important. I see absolutely no creative artwork, as a matter of fact I see no artwork coming home at all. Music -not fun at all. My children came from different schools and maybe the school's test scores weren't as high but my children's outlook on school was much higher! They enjoyed and had fun going to school, I am now dealing with children who do not enjoy school. What good is a school of excellance if the children are not being allowed to be children and have fun while learning. If they dont like school now, in elementary what will happen when they reach High School?
