    "My oldest child started this school in 1999 and my youngest started just last year. He is the fourth child I have had go through here in 14 years. Our family moved a couple of times so we do have experience with other elementary school but this one is hands down the best. I have two successful college students and one in high school as well. They are GT/Honors kids and the teachers here have always made sure they were challenged. Shackelford also has an awesome PTO."

    "Fortunately, Principal Edwards is leaving. She was too busy to respond or have a conversation with a concerned parent. The school stops teaching students in January, and starts practicing for the state tests. This means that students only learn for half of the year, and work on the state exams for the remaining half. If you want you child to received a well-rounded and worldly education, then this is not the place for you. If you want your child to grow up and be a professional, then this is also not the place for you."

    "Overall I have been satisfied with Shackelford. I have a daughter who used to attend and a daughter currently attending. My older daughter is in all normal regular classes, but has problems learning. At first I had a little trouble getting them to understand this and what her special needs are. However they got it together and began doing what they could to help her succeed. My younger daughter is flourishing there and loves it. She loves her teachers and enjoys going to school everyday. I haven't had any issues with the staff/teachers being negative or cold like I have at some of the other school my children have attended. In fact there have been a few times where I was impressed with their attempts to be helpful. Being a parent of a child who struggles in school, I encounter several members of the staff and have never had problems with any of them. Just remember if your child struggles or has any special needs, you will have to stay on top of whatever school they attend. From my experience with three different schools, nobody truly cares about your child but you. If you don't stand up and demand help for your child then they will just ignore the problem."

    "When we moved to Shackelford, I felt the staff to be cold and not interested in us being there. BUT AS I STEPPED UP AND BECAME INVOLVED in the things going on in my child's classroom, the coldness decreased and I felt like part of the family. I am now very comfortable at this campus and have a great relationship with the teachers and staff. Both of my children have flourished in the awesome atmosphere that is all about the children! The focus on the good behavior through the Golden Ticket program is a big plus! The key to having a good relationship is involvement. IF you can't or won't be involved, then you CAN NOT complain. In my opinion, this is the best elementary campus in WISD. I will be truly sad when my children can no longer be Shack Stars!!!"

    "I have a daughter who went here and a son who is currently going and both have done very well here. For the most part all of the teachers have been very dedicated and seem to really care about their students. My daughter learned quickly and enjoyed her time there. While atttending I voiced concern about my sons reading in first grade and his teacher acted like there was nothing to worry about and said he would quickly catch up. While he was in second grade during the regular teacher conference in the beginning of the school year, my husband and I discussed with his teacher we were concerned about his reading progress and as we talked we brought up the subject of dyslexia and she thought we should have him tested. Long story short the school tested him and it was discovered that he did indeed have dyslexia. Since then he was put in the dyslexia program and his grades shot up and he was glad he could understand why he had so much difficulty reading things in the past. The staff at Shackelford has been wonderful in helping him through this. I think it is a great school."
