    This school has exceeded our expectations. The current principal Mr McCloe is responsive and enthusiastic and he seems driven to keep improving. The accelerated reader program has been a perfect fit for our child. We are happy with the teachers and the after-care program. The art teacher and music teachers are superstars.

    I would have agreed with all the positive feedback until this year. It seems that parent involvement is way down. The reason for this could be that some teachers actually blow off parent's participation. Concerned parents who are truly involved with their children are ostracized. If you question the way an incident is handled (or not handled) in school you are labeled a difficult parent. If you continue to want the best for your child you become a problem. It would appear that some children are more precious than others and deserve a higher level of "equality". They are all SPECIAL!! Not just the ones with special circumstances and no child should be made to feel that they don't matter .

    Shenandoah has been a wonderful school for my kids. The Principal is very cutting edge and academic focused. Both of my kids are reading above grade level and LOVE to get up for school every day. I think that says alot for the learning environment.

    Shenandoah Elementary is a public school that feels a lot like a private academy. Excellent teachers impressive parental involvement and a Foundation established and financial supported by parents/community to purchase additional supplies and resources for the school. Recent budget cuts have reduced Music and Art programs but we have been there for 4 years with our daughter and we would not consider any other school in Orlando. We looked at many private schools when she started Kindergarten and Shenandoah's reputation won us over. Many of the private schools use the same curriculum as Orange County but they do not buy the full curriculm package. - an important thing to consider. I am very pleased with the academics and gifted program. at Shenandoah We fill in music and art through extra curricular activities and it works very well.

    Awesome school. My daughter attended two other Elementary schools before Shenandoah and there is no comparison. She has had wonderful classroom teachers great Art Music and PE teachers a super Media Specialist two superb principals. I just can't say enough good things about the school. The children are treated respectfully and the instruction is great. There is LOTS of parent involvement encouraged by the school. The school population has changed recently and we were afraid the school would lower expectations but that has not happened. The teachers are totally dedicated - when I pass the school after hours I see teachers' cars there until very late (Hours after Extended Day has ended - I sometimes wonder when they see their own families!)

    I am the teacher who 'couldn't spell the name of the school.' Sorry. it was a typo. All our regular volunteers have nametags in the office and other visitors are asked to wear a sticker with the date etc. on it. They sign in for security AND so we can keep track of all their hours. We DO have parents who refuse to sign in even though they have been asked. Perhaps this parent is one. We are trying to correct the problem. Also the Additions co-ordinator has no record of your hours if you don't sign in. I listed the SAY baseball as a school activity since the school provided the facilities in the past. (Most Elementary schools do not have their own sports teams). The lack of music programs is due to the construction/renovation and is only temporary.

    Scary that the teacher who wrote the previous review can't spell the name of the school... I have had kids at Shenandoah for 10+ years and it has been a wonderful experience for all of us. I have been on PTA and have volunteered in many other capacities over the years (am still at the school several times a week) and have never signed in or been asked to wear a badge. The teachers we have had have been fantastic the writer below must not have been one of them or is clearly in the dark about how things are run. SAY baseball is not a school sponsored activity and there is no Talent Show or music programs this year. There are no extracurricular sports at Shenandoah. Academically things used to be much better but with the decline of the surrounding area the school is sure to head downhill.

    I am Shanandoah teacher and I would like to correct some misconceptions in other reviews 1) I have morning duty at one of the entrances and ALL visitors who are not wearing an OCPS ID badge are asked to sign in at the office before entering classroom areas 2) There are tables set aside in the cafeteria where parents may eat with their children and parents do this every day 3) Parents are requested to notify Extended Day if their child will be absent. If not the Extended Day personnel check with the classroom teacher about how the child left school and if not satisfied call the child's home 4)Safety Patrols supervise before and after school with adult help 5) Extracurricular activites include SAY baseball Chorus Talent Show PTA skate nights. 6) Technology includes computer lab audio enhancement interactive classroom technology classroom computers.

    My kids and I love this school. They have many great teachers and faculty and my kids learn while having fun. The only thing is I wish they were able to learn a foreign language here.

    This school has proven to be what it was graded as Grade A. Excellent curriculum touching all academic programs in fun creative ways. Parent involvement is highly encouraged and has a high percentage of involvement. Very safe and supportive staff. Teachers are unbelievably educated in their field. Two thumbs up overall.

    Academic program is good. No separation in children skill level between classes minimum of 5-classes per grade. Teacher's spend less time with students whose parents are involved more time with the students whose parents that aren't. We had to go with Kumon to excel our child and keep her mind stimulated. Accelerated Reader program is really good in the early grades. However Teachers will give goal levels of 50 points per quin (4th and 5th grade) for students at or beyond grade level reading. And those students who are behind in reading only 15~20 points. Should be same for everyone to receive their quota or 'A' and anything beyond be extra credit. Local Private School who has a top-feeder program to the local prep-schools requires 16-points per quarter. Other time is focused on vocabulary building as it should. No sports extracurricular activities. Parent involvement is good amongst parents living in single family homes.

    Shenandoah is a good academic school although it is limited in extracurricular activities. The majority of teachers are excellent and the class size is reasonable for the most part. They practice a lot of writing skills for FCAT. The school is older and could be cleaner in the bathrooms. I would like to see some foreign language taught and more advanced computer skills. I feel that this school is behind in technology.

    Two children finished there. One child still there. I would do it all over again without hesitation. Parental involvement is as good as I have ever seen at any school.

    This is a very good public school. The academics are great the kids don't have too much homework and still seem to learn the concepts. Probably the biggest reason it's so successful is parental involvement. The volunteers allow teachers (most are great) the extra time to spend with the children. It is growing a lot like Orlando but the principal really cares so I'm sure she'll try to keep it on track.

    This school is a very important part of the community. All of the parents in my neighborhood whose children attend the school speak of it very highly. Class sizes are fairly large though and the school is overcrowded.

    Wonderful teachers that do their best...bogged down with FCAT & other testing results...school as a whole needs more emphasis on individual students

  • (10 years ago)

    This has been a wonderful school for my daughter and my nephews. The teachers are very dedicated and helpful and the school has a lot of extra activities they provide to envoke school spirit.

    Shenandoah is a wonderful elementary school. The teachers are top-notch and the principal has to be one of the best around. The parent support at this school is phenominal.
