    Shaw has some of the hardest working teachers in the county who deal with the toughest academic challenges possible. Their students' needs are always at the forefront. I'm proud to be a part of the Shaw Faculty.

    My son went to this school for a couple of months and the only good thing it has is Mrs. Angelo first grade teacher. The rest of the staff is just unproffetional and rude!! 2 thumbs way down for Shaw!!

    All 5 of my children attended Shaw and they absolutely love the school. They can't wait to get up and go to school each day. I applaud the team effort that Shaw has between the principal parents teachers and staff. And not to forget the 21st Century program. It is the best thing to happen to this school(i feel). And Mrs.Nixon is wonderful and she's doing a fantastic job with the program. I would like to thank you all for making school exciting for my kids. Keep up the good work

    I have 4 children currently attending Shaw the school has improved dramatically since Ms.Kolka became principal. The after-school program is great and so are the teachers.

    The school has changed since my oldest went there. They seem to be advanced by offering free tutorinn classes and the after school program which both my kids attend. One of my children is struggling in reading and math so it is good for her.
