I have a son at shugart. I call for the principle who is never there and talk to the other principal. My boy is telling me that he is always right, but he is not. That principle just blames the teachers, not my boy. Not good to do because he learns to blame me too. Bad principles.

Ugh what a mistake to send my child here. Their teachers are not as committed as couch elementary teachers. I'm not being bias but coach elementary students are academically better.

Being a parent to only one child who started kindergarten in august of '12. I was very VERY precautious about where to send my daughter to. Luckily b/c its GISD and we have choice of school i didnt feel 'forced' to put her in shugart. So far so good though, I absolutely ADORE her teacher Mrs.Donham who is the sweetest teacher and really helpful. She is very involved and is always giving feedback on my daughter whether positive or negative. The school in general is a plus as well. I have gone to have lunch with my daughter a few times and everyone in the office is great. It seems to be a very 'tight knit' school, everyone knows the students by name and the students know the staff as well, this is a plus in my opinion. My daughter will be attending Shugart next year as well. I really like it here. edit: I did have a negative with the principal at the beginning of the year which left a bad taste in my mouth. She appears to take her 'title' to heart and speaks 'down' on others.

My 2 kids go to this school and they've had tremendous changes in their skills and knowledge since coming from a different school district 2 years ago. The teachers are incredible! Very knowledgable and accomodating. They know how to handle their students very well, though I see one lacking a little TLC. But it doesn't reflect the entire school as a whole. The Principal, assistant principal down to the staff know each kids very well, and by name! Just amazing. 5 stars aren't just enough for these amazing people!

My daughter has been a student at this school for four years. Let me just say, the theachers are great so is the cricrulem! My only complaint is the lack of dissaplen 8 out of 10 of the kids have. Come playground bullies to kids stealing from teachers and students. Although I must say,the school is making alot of changes to correct thies misshaps. For the most part this is not a bad school.

I'm a parent and my son go to Shugart. I admire the teachers and principal for making our kids recognize every end of 6 wks. in doing a good job and this make them strive in their studies. This school is highly recommended for their strict rules and regulations that make students become independent and responsible. Keep up!

I am a parent and an educator. Both of my children attend Shugart and have had a wonderful experience. Their teachers are excellent, concerned, and experienced. The administration handles situations promptly and are extremely professional and friendly. My kids are not always angelic, but they do receive the correction they need in a loving and firm way. They are also praised when they do something right. We were in a different district two years ago and I think the school helped them transition into the new area. Five stars all the way!

As a Mom, I strongly recommended that Shugart is a very good School. My girls were in different Schools in last year, so I know how they improved in their study last year than this year. I am very thankful to the teachers and also the other staff members in the office.

Shugart Elementary is a great place to learn! The teachers were always involved in my child's education and if there was any problems they either called or sent home notes. My daughter went to school for her kindergarten and half of first grade. We are now at a different school and I wish Shugart was right by us. There were some really great teachers there and I never had any problems with them. As for parent involvment it seems like there were quite a few parent's who helped out. There is a music program. The only thing I did not like was it did not have any plays like they did when I went to school. Other than that though I recommend this school.

I would definately recommend sending your child/children to Shugart.My son has been attending this school from Kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade.We have been real fortunate to have had such wonderful teachers..every year.The teachers seems to be much more personable and understanding to his needs and go out of their way to do what's best for the child.It's hard to find a teacher that is willing to work with so many children at one time and yet still have that special time to help someone that needs some one on one attention.These teachers even take out time to email you with any concerns ect....and are very prompt at taking care of issues.They deserve alot of credit and don't get it often enough.And yet people still wonder why they can't find a good teacher.Great work teacher's and staff..we love ya'll.Garland,Tx

My son attended Shugart 1st-5th grades and I have nothing but praise for the staff and development programs. My son has been on the A-B honor roll the entire year and worked hard. He has had awesome teachers 4 out of 5 years. The office staff is great! Shugart is a great school!

Overall I find Shugart to be an acceptible school. The staff is very friendly and my daughter has been an honor roll student for the two years she has attended when she was previously in jeopardy of not passing at her previous school. I would like to see more tolerance and patience on the part of some of the 4th grade teachers and better extracurricular activities and field trips though. On a scale of one to ten I would give Shugart an 8.

My child was doing just fine until she came to this school. The students to teacher ratios are so high there is no other option for the teachers other than to become 'assigners' instead of teachers. The parents are required to be the teachers when you open up the backpack and get to homework time. If you send your child to this school, you better have a lot of time and a teaching degree.

The Principal makes you feel welcome and the staff goes out of their way to work with you as a parent. All you have to do is be willing to be there for your children. I have had three of five children go from kindergarten through fifth grade at Shugart. The two youngsters are in first and third currently.
