We've been a Shaffer family for years. I am always amazed at what an involved group of parents there are. There's a lottery to be able to chaperone on field trips, so many parents are willing to help. The teachers are, for the most part, great. There have been a few bad apples over the years, but ...  Read more

My child has been at this school for 4 years now and has never experienced bullying nor has he witnessed any. I don't understand the previous reviewer's comments on bullying. Also, I think that accusing teachers of being involved in the bullying is crazy. This is a great school!!

My daughter attended Shaffer for just 3 months before we decided to move her to a different school. Although she liked her teacher and the kids, the work was not challenging. When I communicated this to the teacher, absolutely nothing was done. In fact, when I told the teacher the books she was sending ...  Read more
