Poor academic school. No math homework. Home access not updated. My son in third grade. I don't see any improvement from school. I don't know bcoz of the new teacher. BuT I see the school does nothing to work to improve academic. The kids take extra outside class Kumon.. But the principal please step up and improve the academic improvement. We like the surrounding but school need to improve in curriculum and teaching and communicating with the parents. Please Have only good experienced new teachers

My husband and I did alot of research before choosing our home, and bought this one simply because it was in the Shakerag Elementary district. I could not ask for a better experience for my children! I work closely with the principal and have found him to care deeply about the well-being and education of the children. All the best teachers try to get in to Shakerag, so we have yet to have a bad experience. My children have fun, but the expectation for their education and behavior is still high. They actually MISS SCHOOL when we are on vacation:) The PTA is very prevalent and I am pleasantly surprised by how many parents are involved. I also love the racial diversity. My children's best friends are Kenyan, German, English, Indian, Korean, Japanese, Syrian...its been a wonderful education for us on its own. You absolutely will not regret sending your kids to Shakerag!

Shakerag is possibly one of the best schools in the country The principal is terrific, as are most teachers. The school has a fantastic family atmosphere, even if it serves an incredibly diversified public with many very intelligent students, and parents. We have 2 children in the school, and feel lucky with this school.

I am giving this school only 3 stars because, while my child is learning in the classroom, some of the ladies who run the drop-off and pick-up line are inattentive and rude.

Alike too many PTAs in the area, the power rests too much on the few who're at the helm as there're no other venues for the parent community to be involved at the school except vis-a-vis the PTA machine. Without a formal check and balance system of the PTA, there're some that uses the machinery to act territorial and hostile. Not any different at this school. Academically, the faculty strives hard and tries to promote a strong learning environment.

Shakerag Elementary sets high expectations for both it 's staff and students. The principal is dedicated to making sure that the students needs come first in whatever decisions need to be made for the school as a whole. The principal and assistant principal, along with the fabulous teachers, are always available to meet with and discuss parent concerns or student issues--and you will always be greeted with a friendly smile when you see them in the hallways! It is truly a family-like atmosphere where I have been more than pleased to see my children flourish- both academically and socially. Go Sharks!

Shakerag is an ok school. I would'nt say it has been a great experience so far. Although most of the staff is very welcoming, I can't say the same for the principal. He really should not be in that position. I have a lot more things to say about him but I won't put it all on this site. I would feel a lot lot better if he left the school.

It is a shame that our children go to a school where the emphasis is completely on being a platinum level school, or as in our mission statement, one where it is the goal for all children to meet or exceed expectations. It would be nice to be at a school where the standardized test scores, were not the primary emphasis in our children s educational experience. We are focused on raising children that not only excel at school, but in life, and have social skills that allow them to be successful both in and out of the classroom. While yes our children are receiving a great education (or so we are told by their test scores ) a fundamental ideal is not embraced at our school, that Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing~Harriet Braiker. Are we teaching our children to be problem solvers that through failure and hard work can persevere and achieve perfection or is that success is measured by being perfect on a standardized test? We question whether we have sold ourselves short by conforming to the ideologies that children are only successful through a single minded focus of achieving the highest possible test scores, regardless of what may be sacrificed along the way. A child who does not spend their free time outside of school getting further educational enrichment and tutoring and even Coach Textbooks to study for our standardized tests, and instead, is focused on non educational activities that enrich their lives and makes them a well rounded individual through sport, arts, community, church and volunteerism is a minority at our school. We are thankful for the dedicated teaching staff at Shakerag, and have been fortunate to have some fantastic educators for our children. What we know is that our children have learned to be good test takers at Shakerag, what remains to be seen is if they are lifelong learners , we have had to teach that at home.

Shakerag has the best combination of supportive and involved parents, forward-thinking administrators, compassionate and hardworking teachers, and students who are prepared and eager to learn compared to any other school I've worked in for the past 17 years. Cultural diversity is something we live and celebrate every day, while also celebrating what it means to be an American. I feel fortunate to teach in such a nurturing school!

I have 2 kids in Shakerag and I simply LOVE the school. Nothing is more important to me than the teachers who care and are ready to go an extra mile. There is no 'one size fits all' and recognizing each child's potential is a challenge in itself. Diversity is always a good thing for your personal growth and for understanding that even though people look different and speak in a different way we are all same from inside. Shakerag is an excellent example of how to achieve all this under one roof
