    "I attended the Christmas Choir performance late November 2013. As a new resident, I was appalled at the "chaos" in the cafeteria where it was held. No opening comments from the adminstration, constant talking and milling around, participation choir members were blowing kisses to friends, smacking lips while chewing gum while supposedly singing. There were no ending remarks and the kids just walked off. The new online homework site loses work constantly and creates missing assignments and is only corrected when the parent goes in to complain. No proactive work by the teacher after seeing an abnormal trend or a failing test. The children speak frequently about drug use and the availability of pot to purchase. I sit in the parking lot to pick my 8th grader up and am amazed at the lack of discipline and control that the school has over the children. The kids "allow" the administration to be "in charge". I cannot wait to leave this school and the PA school system after this school year. What a disappointment."

    "I am currently an 8th grader at Shafer. I am on team 8a. I do agree our school has some problems, but every school does. Shafer in my opinion deals with the situations very well, and takes disiplinary actions when needed. This school gives you many freedoms and lets youhave fun while you learn. You meet many people. I love shafer middle school. And i am going to be sad when i leave at the end of this year."

    "The best school my son ever attended! Mr Incollingo was always involved with helping a student or a parent. He is very professional and cares about all his students. The teachers are phenominal! The secretaries are very organized and keep everything running smooth. Shafer is kept very clean and the kids love being there. They are very sad to leave. Ms. Fields is very knowledgeable and does a terrific job with the children. I can't say enough about this school. My son graduated this year, I will truly miss everyone there. Shafer will always be a big part of our family. Debra McCarron"
