    I love Sheafe Road because the teachers are caring and giving and they teach with all their hearts. Everyone comes together as a family when needed and there is no short supply of wonderful and dedicated volunteers that help keep this school great! My kids learned a lot and continue to remember the fun and good times with friends and teachers who make Sheafe Road 'A fun place to learn'!

    I have 3 children @ Sheafe Rd. Elementary. I am pleased with their progress. Sheafe has many activities Drama Club Homework Club Math Club Math Carnivals Fall Festivals Ice Cream Socials Reading Workshops w/ Mount St. Mary College Science Fairs Intramurals that include Football Karate Rock Wall Climbing Track & Field Bowling Floor Hockey Soccer Tennis Gymnastics & Dance ect... Yet I am very concerned with the future of education in Wappingers Central School District. Due to budget cuts @ the state & county levels services are being cut. Next year the Enrichment Program & Bridge Classes will not be available @ Sheafe Rd. Loss of these services is a tragedy. All of my children have participated in one or both of these programs and are better students for it. One of my children in particular is learning impared & would still be struggling without those programs.

    My daughter is in the 2nd grade . And so far she has had a wonderful time learning and getting great grades from k-2 and the staff has been very helpful. I have all nice things to say about the staff and the school . thank you and keep up the good work.

    This is not the best school to attend if your child shows the need for special education intervention later on in their elementary years. You really have to be an advocate for your child and fight hard to get any help. I also do not care on how they grade low the 1st quarter just to give the child incentive to work harder for a higher grade. It is not fair to those who are already working hard and not seeing the reward.

    I have had three (very different) children in Sheafe Road. I think this is the absolute best elementary school in New York! All of the teachers are incredibly kind and caring towards the students AND their families. Most teachers try to guides each student to use their full abilities but it's difficult sometimes due to all the strife in many of these children's lives. The new principal is outstanding and his energy and friendliness have infused the school with new vigor to strive toward excellence! The PTA does a lot to add extra fun into the school life.

    My child started Sheafe Road after a move to the area in 4th grade. She had a wonderful start and transition to her new school thanks to a wonderful teacher who was very attentive to her needs. She was very welcome by students and teachers alike. Since I can compare the level of education from Long Island to here I have a few concerns. She started taking violin lessons in 2nd grade so she already had 2 years of learning! Here it only starts in 5th to me she has to start over again. She also had book reports in 2nd and 3rd which were simple and question lead it got her thinking organizing and writing. In Sheafe she had none! My concern is academics are a little behind schedule in certain areas. Sheafe Road has a lot of potential I believe it is capable of so much more.Start them young.

    I have a kindergartener in Sheafe rd elementary and I feel he is not learning enough. There is too much 'play' or 'free' time and not enough instructional time. A pta member informed me that there is experimental classes at the school where those students are taught differently and more material than the other classes. I feel it is at a great disadavantage to those students in the 'regular' class due to the fact that the others will be more advanced. What will happen to these children next year? the advanced will be bored in a 'regular' classroom and the others will stuggle. (and no you don't have an option to chose which class your child is enrolled in and there is no screening.) I am not impressed with my child's education at this school.
