I am very upset with Shady Brook. My boys went to this school the last two years and my 3rd grader did not pass the math portion of the STAAR test and I was told he had to do summer school. I was under the impression that attending summer school would ensure his promotion to 4th. WRONG. Also was not told until I was taking my boys to school for the first day at a different school. They never even told me. I was blind sighted. Now both of my boys are in the same grade which is unacceptable. He passed all his classes and holding him back seems very extreme. The real slap in the face was the first graded math assignment that has come home this year was a 100. I am fighting this and will not stop until they move him up. No compassion, they don't care. They only have to hold back 5th and 8th graders by law. Every other grade is at their discretion. Get ready for the fight!!
My daughter has been at Shady Brook since kindergarten, and is now in 2nd grade. She is reading at an early 4th grade level and has an awesome teacher. Her teacher is extremely nice, very patient and understanding. So far we've had nothing but positive experiences with this school, although some members of the PTA can be a little snotty. I would definitely recommend this school.
The teachers at Shady Brook are truly passionate about teaching and giving their best to all of the kids! The children are happy and learning!
My daughter is in Kindergarten and the teacher has been wonderful. The principal and counselors have been very helpful in helping my daughter adjust to Kindergarten. They have a great and active PTA and they hold many school events for the children. They offer suzuki strings and all sorts of fine arts activities. I would highly recommend this school.

I completely understand about feeling betrayed. The Principal and staff has failed my child. I would not wish what we went through on anyone. We are currently homeschooling.
OMG i love this school to death!! I entered this school in 1st grade all the way to 6th grade!! The teachers are awesome and the kids i went with were also awesome too!! This school will give your child memories he/she will never forget!! A tip: the best teacher there is Ms. Bonnick!!! Go her!!!
My daughter is in Kindergarten and I love the involvement of the teachers. I feel real comfortable that my daughter attends a school that cares as much as I care.
This is a good school overall, It is very challenging. I did notice, they are wonderful with handicapped children in all ways. Nice neighborhood ,very quiet. Office staff is nice also. There are many types of teachers some nicer than others, but with a letter you can change your childs class.. Many options here. Overall good!
I feel betrayed. I bought a house specifically for my son to go to this school because at that time, it was ver promising. This school has gone downhill. They have had four different principals in five years, the current one not being suitable for the job. They underfund the same programs they endorse. They dont follow discipline procedures according to their own book, but then go ahead and defend the indefensible when it comes to other kids' behavior. I have come to the point where I have asked for information on how to pull my son out of that school.
