Fortunately, Principal Edwards is leaving. She was too busy to respond or have a conversation with a concerned parent.

All the staff seems to be energetic and serious about providing the right environment for the students at the most impressionable time in their lives. My daughter has enjoyed her 3 years at Shackleford. If you are planning on moving into the area, feel confident that Shackleford is a cut above.

Principal doesn't know anything about primary grade curriculum. She is high strung and throws tantrums. Very disappointing.

My child attends Shakelford and it is a huge disappointment, especially from where we moved from. The teacher misgrades the papers, teaches incorrect information, and has no control over the class. And I use to teach elementrary school myself so I know what goes on!
