    We enrolled our Kindergartener there this fall. We have been impressed with the staff at every turn and we are excited about our student's growth during these first few months.

    this school is ok but staff is somewhat helping i didn't have year satisfaction in my son's first year teacher but in his second year his teacher was way more passionate about her job i hope this year it will be the same; but the security is not satisfactory specially at the beginning of the year

    I would like to say that my daughter has attended Shamrock Gardens Elementary since she was in kindergarden and she is now going into the 3rd grade. I have seen this school grow and change for the best. Her 2nd grade teacher Ms. Scott has done such a great job with my daughter and her classmates that I would recommend this school to anyone. Next year the school will be a Learning Emmersion School which means more learing and room for advancement. Thank you Shamrock Gardens Staff for all you do and will do in the future for OUR CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
