I heard wonderful things about this school and its teachers and could not wait for my children to attend. Now I can't wait for them to leave. There are teachers in this school that involve themselves in immoral acts with married parents of students, and while what they do outside of the school is one thing, that behavior still effects the student who is required to face that teacher at school, especially when they bring it to the school. The PTA is just one big drama fest, where nobody cares about the students and only about bullying by the so called seat holders. There is also adultery in the PTA, and it is very sad that it is accepted by so many as normal. I for one do not want my children in such an environment, nor do I want to be part of it as much as I want to be involved in the school with my children. I cannot wait to move my children out of this district.

Our school has great teachers and staff. They are caring about students and safety as well as their learning. Would like to see more after school tutoring starting earlier in the year for those with problems understanding basic subjects.

I initially was excited about having my child attend here. However, after one 'incident' after another, I have learned that this school isn't as great as what people say. After discussing the school and a transfer with my husband, we spoke to some other parents that said they had removed their kids from Shady Oaks also. I have received 'anonymous' emails from parents accusing the administration of preferential treatment. I have heard my kid's teacher lose her patience and yell at the kids. The PTA is a joke. They are bullies. I honestly think the principal told me what she thinks I wanted to hear rather than be upfront about issues when we discussed my concerns. I have experienced my child being called 'chaos' from the teacher in front of the entire class and have watched as a biased colored dot tells me about how the teacher feels she has behaved. The 'behavior grading system' of red, yellow and green dots is entirely arbitrary to her teacher.I am sure the school is great for some families. I just feel children deserve better and that it all begins with the school's administration and how they handle problems.

My daughter went there, now my granddaughter goes there and I feel it's a highly rated school in our area, staff is great. Other reasons also.

Respect is the order of every day at Shady Oaks. The children respect themselves, each other, and authority. In the hallway, classroom, or cafeteria - wherever children congregate, an adult is in charge. In this environ, children thrive. Self actualization is permitted and tolerance for each child's abilities is routine. I know my child is gaining a wonderful education at Shady Oaks, including important lessons in addition to the traditional 'three R's'. She's learning how to behave with Respect, a valuable 'fourth R'.

I think this is a good school, however, it has not met my expectations. I was very happy that my child would be in a 'Core Knowledge' school, however, there seems to be a lack of interest from the administration of this school to actually make 'Core Knowledge' a priority. As far as parent involvement goes, that is also lacking. Therefore, you have a handful of parents who work very hard because the rest are pretty much absent from any volunteer opportunities. I am pleased with the teachers. They do an excellent job. They are very caring. In a nutshell, my main concerns are in regard to the curriculum and lack of parental involvement.

Good school in a nice district. Great teachers. Great student/teacher ratio. Very active parents.

Posted June 30, 2004

We moved to the school district towards the end of my son's Kindergarten year. We were concerned about how well he would adjust, if he would feel welcome, and how it would affect his schoolwork. I can't think of a better way to describe our experience at Shady Oaks Elementary than that we were welcomed into the school with open arms, and it seems like he has been hugged ever since. The staff and teachers are loving and caring, they are connected with the students and the parents, and they try to understand the student as a person, an individual, rather than as a generalized figure. I saw a change in my son's entire demeanor after one week of school. He was confident, happy, and enthusiastic about learning. I was kept up-to-date on his progress, and at conferences I could tell that the staff is dedicated to educational success.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


Texas uses Accountability Ratings to indicate the overall performance of each school and district. The ratings are based on TAKS test results, dropout rates for grades 7 and 8 and school completion rates for grades 9 through 12. Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
