Major General William R Shafter Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

April 12, 2018 Submitted by a parent
April 18th is "Purple Up! For Military Kids” and Shafter Elementary's enrollment is nearly 95% military kids. Yet principal higa will not allow them to wear purple on this day instead of the blue, yellow or black school t- shirts (uniforms). This shows her continued disregard for the community that she works in. This is a day for communities to wear purple to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. Throughout the month, the U.S. Department of Defense Education Activity encourages schools to plan special events to honor military children or incorporate the themes of the month into the classroom. She has planned nothing for her students and stonewalled the PTO's efforts to participate in this national day of recognition.

The PTO approved funds at the beginning of this school year for the 6th grade promotion party at Dave & Busters. After receiving the funds & without seeking concurrence from the PTO or the parents of 6th grade students, the principal allowed the students to choose between having a bowling party or Rumors Nightclub w/out parents. This lack of communication not only resulted in the misuse of parent donations but placed parents in the position of denying their student the ability to celebrate with their peers because the location was not age appropriate. It prevented parents from being able to celebrate with their child as would have been possible if the event was held elsewhere or the principal had allowed parents to be chaperones. When initially questioned, the principal said Dave & Busters had a scheduling conflict. However, other schools were able to make reservations at a later time with no trouble. As other parents voiced their displeasure, the principal said continued complaints would result in canceling the year-end events completely. Some of our concerns were the principal forbidding parent participation as chaperones at this outing conducted during school hours. The week before the event, the principal banned student phones at the event to prevent picture taking. This increased the perception of something to hide from the parents. The principal said she did not want students posting on social media during the event but the teachers would take pictures to share. When we asked about pictures from the event, we learned that one of the 6th grade teachers was not only taking pictures but streaming live to her personal Facebook account throughout the event. We are still waiting to see the pictures taken at the event. While we acknowledge that we signed a release for our child’s picture to be taken, this was with the understanding it was for school use such as yearbooks, not a teacher’s personal use especially when students were not allowed to take phones for the exact same reason. We were also assured that the dancing cages (“stripper cages” as some students called them) at this nightclub would be off limits or removed for the event. Our child told us that some of the school staff danced in them to show off in front of the students. A number of other parents informed us that their children witnessed the same behavior.

The school has different rules for different people. The admin cannot get their act together. Our child's teacher was not qualified and the principal did the report cards. This came about after a wonderful teacher was driven out. Funny one good teacher after another leaves and puppets remain. Shame on admin and their lies.The school has little to offer kids, over crowded classrooms, eating outside since admin turned cafeteria into to a classroom instead of using the computer lab. (School is 1 to 1 computers.) Pets get what they want while others leave.

Was a constant fight to get a IEP correct for my son. Also when moving they purposely sat on his school records while we are out of state so my son couldn't start school in his new state. I would not suggest putting a special needs kid in this school.

The previous post is correct that the school is only doing well because of the military families. The school's minimal extracurricular activities were reduced without notice at the beginning of the school year due to a lack of interest by the staff. The students for the sole remaining robotics team were selected in secret just 2 weeks into school year instead of holding tryouts for those interested. The school closed their library for the year to create another classroom with only a couple days notice and then closed the cafeteria on a Monday with notice being given the Friday before. The children are forced to eat outside on the ground unless their teachers let the students eat in the classroom with them. While 4 portable classrooms have been sitting unused for over a year. The school said they hope both will be open by August 2017.
