Big Shanty Elementary School Reviews

A former student, I don't know what it currently is like, but unless there have been major changes, it is not a very good school. I got a poor quality of education in the "advanced" classes. The classes were overcrowded and I only had 3 good teachers ( out of 7, including Target teachers).

Teachers appear to be overwhelmed (voice that to parents) and are not passionate about the job. Lots of errors with grading and being attentive to children’s needs/learning abilities. Would not recommend. There are several better performing schools in the area. We were disappointed and could not wait to remove our child.
