Message from the Principal

Welcome to Shaner!  Our school's culture can best be characterized by our focus on a student-centered learning environment.  One of the great strengths of our staff is found in the individualized learning experiences that they provide for each of our children.  With particular research and evidenced-based emphasis on literacy and social and behavioral learning, our partnerships with leading professional development institutions allow our staff to remain at the forefront in these areas.  Our intervention team works to individualize teaching and learning experiences for our students and works with families to maximize their growth.  Our staff members love what they do and are thankful to be able to partner with you!  If we can be of assistance to you and your family please reach out to us. 

~ Principal Cartwright
