My niece goes to Shadydale and I, nor her grandmother, or dad are pleased. The school provides extra curricular activities and my niece loves her teachers. I do not feel, though that this school is challenging enough for her academically to compete with students from other districts. She has told me that they have fights at her school on a daily basis. That seems to be too much for an elementary school.

Shadydale Elementary is one of the best schools in Texas. I am very pleased with our experience at the school. It has afforded me the opportunity to restore my faith in the North Forest ISD. Hats Off to the Mighty Rams at Shadydale Elementary!

I think that this school needs to focus more on their daily classwork because my childern attends school there and they really love going to school there, but they need more of a challengein class. As well as studying for the TAAS test they are all excited about the test until they are all not focusing on there daily classwork.
