My child is in 1st grade, and this is his first year here. This school is much better than the last school he attended. His teacher, Ms. Benson, is awesome! She has great communication, is very friendly, and has a healthy outlook on homework for kids this age (minimal and no busywork). My son is constantly bringing home work that incorporates art or drawing. This really helps to make learning more fun when he can be creative with it. The school has a lot of family events in the evening. My only disappointment is that there aren't any musical programs that incorporate all the grades. This school offers PE daily, both art and music weekly, iPad learning each week, and they have several computers in the room that they can plan educational games on. The gifted teacher already visits the whole 1st grade, even though they haven't done the testing yet. I do wish recess were separate from PE, as the kids don't see it as free time, since they have to choose one station and stay there. Overall though, I have been very happy with the school as a whole, and we are disappointed to be leaving here next year (military). I'm hoping our next school is as good as Shelton Park.

Check the school's SOL scores by grade level. If your child has a disability their chances of passing the SOLs are significantly lower than a student without disabilities. This school does not put the needs of a disabled child first. The desires of the reasonable parent are not taken into regard. If your child has not been identified as a child with disabilities prior to enrollment prepare to fight for their rights. I personally have had the worst experience with this school in comparison to anywhere else.

My daughter has been going to Shelton Park for the last two years. Her kindergarten teacher was awesome!! Worked with all the kids one on one if need be and helped them progress further as a class and individually aswell. Her first grade teacher is just as awesome! The teachers at Shelton Park take their time to get to know their students strengths and weaknesses. They at times may seem hard but they like to give our children some challenges in order for them to excel even more. This school has strong ties with military families as well and understands the needs of the military children. We enjoy this school and hope to remain in this school for as long as we are stationed here :)

I'm so sorry we have to move away from this wonderful school at the end of the year. My child is in Kindergarten, and his teachers are amazing! The teachers and front desk staff, are always so friendly and helpful. I was worried the all day Kindergarten would be too taxing on my son, but he has blossomed so much, and loves school! We're not even halfway through the school year, and I am amazed at how much his reading skills have improved. Any parent should consider themselves lucky, if their child attends Shelton Park!

I am very disatisfied with Shelton Park and the way the children with disabilities are treated by some of the staff. The principle has a hidden agenda to say the least. Building a childs educational selfesteem should be of the upmost importance to us all.

I am very pleased with the faculty and staff of Shelton Park. This is the only school that my children have ever attended and we feel like part of the family there. They have a great gifted resource program and the all day kindergarten is fantastic.

I really love this school. the staff is so involved with the students learning. Also to pick up your child you have to have an id ready for them to view. Excellent neighborhood. The scool is so clean and neat. And they pass all of their test with high scores. Bravo!

This school is fabulous. I love it. We have been here for almost 5 years and will be here 5 more. My daughter has had some truly wonderful teachers at this school. She loves school and I know it's because of Shelton Park and their wonderful staff. She is in a lot of after school programs like SCA and Chess Club. Wonderful place to be.

Both of my children have thrived at Shelton Park. The teaching staff is wonderful. I have found the school to be both nurturing and supportive of both my children and myself.

I could not possibly be more pleased with this school. I have watched my daughter grow so very much since her first day there. The teachers, staff and environment are all loving, caring and most importantly-challenging!
