Open Quote principal is not qualified to run school.uses very poor judgment. Close Quote


by a parent
Tuesday, February 24, 2009

Open Quote My children have attended Shawmut Hills since 2002 and we believe they offer a competitive education with other schools outside of the GRPS district.

There has been a consistently high level of parent participation within the school, every year through highly esteemed programs such as the PTA the PAL and other collaborative initiatives with Grand Valley State University Professors, City High School students and so many others in the community.

Shawmut Hills maintains a diverse enrollment and seeks to raise the standard for all students believing all children can achieve their potential. This is a disciplined school in which children can learn in a safe environment with a professional yet caring staff.

Our family has the resources to choose any school in or out of the district, and we have consistently choosen Shawmut Hills for 6 years because they have been able to positively impact our children's education and character development.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
