14 Parent Reviews for Shelton School

In response to one of the earlier comments ... I would never, ever consider sending my child to a school that made a comment that my child needed to go to school with "normal" kids before accepting him .... that is crazy. My kid transitioned to Highland Park High School from Shelton, It might not be ...  Read more

My friends son goes to this school. He is entering 9th grade next year so she wanted to transfer him into a regular private school. He was denied and told that he needs to show that he can learn among "normal" kids for at least 2 years in a regular school curriculum before he would be accepted. Heads ...  Read more

My daughter has attended Shelton for the past 4 years and I can not say enough about how wonderful this school is. My daughter has not only excelled academically but socially as well. Incredible teachers and an excellent learning environment.

[shelton] shelton is not the best school like people say i go here and let me say i do not enjoy it. Its not the environment you would want your child in. I would suggest you look for other learning different schools.

Lifechanging That pretty much sums up our experience at Shelton. My kids are both dyslexic and ADD and before Shelton were on the path to nowhere at best in two different school systems who didn't understand them or how to teach them. Shelton has not only brought their academic status up to grade ...  Read more

Can't say enough great things about this school! This is our first year and we love it! Our son who has dyslexia, dsygraphia, and ADHD is blossoming at Shelton. They just know how to teach this type of child and he's thriving. His test scores indicate he is right on target with other kids his age. ...  Read more

I feel that Shelton is one of the best schools around. I've been working Scholars with Joan Dodd, and she is a great teacher to work for. My only complaint is i'm only parttime on Saturdays, but would love to work for Shelton fulltime. No other school can compare with them.

I graduated from Shelton High School years ago, and I can say for sure that my experience at Shelton was remarkable. The teachers at Shelton go out of their way for kids, more than most teachers at any other school. I think our Theater department is the best in the city. Our athletic department is gradually ...  Read more

I did not find that the school was as nurturing as 'advertised'. There are many very warm people there, but the school feels exclusive and elitist. If you do not have the 14K+ tuition and lots more to contribute to the many fund raising events - you are left feeling like you just don't belong.
