The transformative power of an effective teacher is something almost all of us have experienced and understand on a personal level. If we were particularly fortunate, we had numerous exceptional teachers who made school an exciting and interesting place. Those teachers possessed a passion for the subjects that they taught and genuine care for the students with whom they worked. They inspired us to play with ideas, think deeply about the subject matter, take on more challenging work, and even pursue careers in a particular field of study.

Shields is the greatest school because they have a wonderful staff of very educated teachers who have lots of experience. The principal Mrs. North is very dedicated to making all of the students very comfortable she makes sure that there zero tolerance for bullies is enforced. I just love the school very much.

What a great school! I could not ask for a better place for my kids to go to school. I know they are getting a top notch education in a loving and supportive environment. When my oldest child left Shields he was completely prepared for 5th grade and I know my other child will be, too!

This school is great. They have extracurricular activities and wonderful teachers and staff. My children love to go here and are not really looking forward to leaving to go on. They will miss Shields Elementary greatly when they go on to the higher grades.

I am so glad my daughter has the opportunity to attend Shields. She has had great teachers both years she has gone here. The parent involvement is enormous. There are a few extra curricular activities but I don''t expect much of that in an elementary school.
