5/04 - We've just completed our first year at Shadow Oaks and LOVE the school. We were on transfer to another school and had our transfer revoked because of space issues. We were concerned about the large percentage of spanish-speaking only children at Shadow Oaks and that the language barrier would hold our children back, but once enrolled we found out that there are classes for the children who speak predominately Spanish and no Spanish is spoken by the teachers to students in the classes our children attended. We hope more families in the neighborhood will bring their children to Shadow Oaks. The administration and faculty are great. Come see for yourself.. it really is a wonderful school! Kym & Jimmy Jump
