Even though the school is a Blue ribbon school certainly its not up to mark. Not much homework for students no pressure at all. And when they move to middle school suddenly pressure gets built up. I am not sure why Science gets taught only for 2-3 months. In Music this school is ZERO. Hardly once in a month class for music and that too irregular. Either they are understaffed or don't have effective Music teacher. Probably they should get Music teacher from West Creek Hill Elementary school (east pennsboro district).

This is our third school in 3 years.We have two kids since last two year and I found this is worst school my kids. Lots of discrmination. I have no choice to keep my kids to this school.
We have one child at Shaull After moving here half-way through kindergarten year we were impressed by the wonderful staff. The secretary Mrs Martini is great with making the kids and parents feel welcomed. Parents can help with Kid Writing as well as other voluneer opportunities. Moms are honored at Muffins for Mom; Dads get their day at Donoughts for Dads. Such a wonderful commuity and family-based school!
Now that there is a new principal things are run much better and smoother. The principal is very much connected to the children the happenings and he cares!! Some subjects have average and high academic classes to which your child is appropriately placed. Music and Art are orchestrated just fine. Parent evolvement is plenty with lots of non working mothers who devote much of their time to their child classroom and special events. The school puts 'anti-bullying' high on their list and results are good. The schools guidance counselor is wonderful with the children and she bonds with them creating good values that they might not get at home. Most teachers are great and are willing to go the 'extra mile' to make learning both fun and interesting. From experience you must make sure your child is not on the 'cusp' and make sure he/she gets extra help.
I have two children attending this school. So far we are impressed with the level of academics offered and the quality of the teaching staff. I have found the teachers to be very responsive when I have brought up specific issues with my children. Shaull offers music art and PE class weekly and my youngest has PE twice a week. They offer swimmimg classes for a reasonable fee during the winter at the district high school and every 1st and 5th grader has 2 weeks of swimming class in the Spring. My children are always happy to go to school.
Academic programs are good. Music arts and sports (including swimming) provided every week. Parents can get involved as much as they can. There are parent teacher conferences 3 times a year and there is an open house and back to school night in the beginning of the school year.
