Some of our staff have been at our school for 20+ years. Our students come back when they are grown to visit and enrolll their own children.
- With our challenging academics, most of our graduating 5th grade students go on to advanced placement and honors classes in middle and high school. Students that go on to another kindergarten after our VPK program are placed in advanced Kindergarten.

Shady Oaks is a great school for my kids. Each child is treated as an individual. Kids love it--and it is true--they do go on to advance classes. Building is a little old, but well kept. My son was reading before he even left pre-k.
