    "As a retired teacher from Sharyland ISD and having a granddaughter at Shimotsu Elem,I am extremely impressed by their STARR scores. Shimotsu Elem. got all distinctions earned by the state in Academic Achievement in Reading and Math. Compared to comparisons of like demographics and of the 40 Texas schools, Shimotsu tied #2 in the state. Cannot get much better than this!!"

    "My children have been in this school for 3 years and I'm sad to leave. The teachers were very helpful and giving feedback on their progress,either by email or notes in their folders.The principal is very involved in everything and he actually helps open cardoors in morning when the kids are arriving. I've never seen an principal do that. They have a wonderful UIL program and encourage students to participate. Very happy with the GT program also. I was sad to see that the music class was reduced to only a few grade levels and not all like before. The AR program is wonderful and helped my son become competitive, just to win the trophies. And above all, my absolute favorite is the awards ceremony. It emphasis on each student. Recognizing not only academic but, also extra-curricular activities."

    "My oldest now in 4th grade, had severe speech problems as well as associating with other children, and could not read or write at the his kinder level at that time. Within two weeks,of attending Shimotsu, he transformed into a new little boy; he was able to speak , write, read and be sociable. His self steam was lifted so much that he is no longer shy and has been able to make many friends. There is no doubt that ALL staff starting with the principal contribute to give my child and our family this wonderful gift. They are so involved and dedicated to the well-being of all the children that makes me a proud parent to know that my children have the opportunity to attend this school. They have "zero" tolerance for bullying and will address any problem immediately. They promote self steem and good manners and great afterschool program for those students that need the extra help. I have never seen a principal to be the first one at the school grounds receiving his students with a high five every morning wether is cold, raining or hot; Mr. L is the nicest coolest principal. WONDERFUL SCHOOL I LOVE IT !!!!"
