My nephew attends this school and I have seen first hand the bad apples of teachers and Staff. The principal is abusive when using corporal punishment and if the child isnt top of the list he is picked on by teachers and students. I wouldnt even give them the satisfaction of a rating.

New to area and heard this was the best school in the county. Removed my child from this school after only 3 months. Teacher was bad (sure most of the other teachers there are good). Principal was unprofessional and classless. Let this be a warning that just because a school has a good reputation it doesn't always mean that it is great.
My kids have been at Shiver now for 6 years and they love it. My husband and I have been very pleased with the teachers and staff and our kids have really learned and even had the opportunity to excel. We are so glad our kids get to go there!
My children transferred to Shiver last year and have thoroughly enjoyed Shiver. They were concerned at first because they were leaving their friends behind. But it has turned out to be a great move. The teachers and administration are concerned caring individuals that truly want children to succeed.
Both my daughters love this school! My oldest daughter hate the day they decided to save gas and close the school for a day!
Oh to remember the great years at Shiver... I attended Shiver k-8th grade and I look back on those years as the glory days. Shiver is a school dedicated to education and respect.
Both of our daughters attended Shiver from kindergarten through 8th grade. They received an outstanding education from caring qualified and highly professional teachers. Parental involvement is actively encouraged; discipline is a team (parent/teacher/administration/student) effort; and the entire school is dedicated to producing life-long learners.
Shiver is a great school. It is a small school so the class sizes are smaller. I feel like the teachers can take up more time in smaller classes.
