    Both of my children are currently in Shelter Rock and I couldn't be happier. The teachers are dedicated professionals and the principal is very hands on. The school welcomes parental involvement and most importantly the look forward to going to school and love learning. The principal also has a zero tolerance policy for inappropriate behavior. I highly recommend Shelter Rock!

    I went to Shelter Rock School when I was a kid and couldn't be happier that my own children are now students as well and are equally happy. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The principal is great with the kids and always makes time to speak with you if you have any concerns. I am so thankful for them for raising a red flag that my son possibly had a learning disability and b/c of their concern was able to get the help he needed in and out of class. I highly recommend Shelter Rock School.

    My daughter is in grade 1. I like her teacher and she likes her too. But I am not very happy with the administration. If you go to the office they are not really very friendly and sometimes little rude too.

    Excellent full-day Kindergarten program. Three Computers in each of the K and 1st classrooms. Strict but seemingly efficient principal. If all the grades could give the commitment of the full-day kindergarten this would be a top notch school.
