Anyone have some feedback about Shell Beach Elementary School? We have an opportunity to move and checking in on the local school. Both Yelp and Great Schools.com have 5 star ratings so it is worth exploring.
I've had my kids enrolled in Montessori and also a local elementary in the bay area.
Thanks in advance for your feedback and please feel free to share any other information about the education in the area.
I hope all is going well with your prospective move! I have heard wonderful things about Shell Beach Elementary (both my partner and I grew up in the area, and we now live a few towns north of SB), and a friend of mine teaches there. When we were considering moving to Shell Beach, we were really excited about the school! It has a great local reputation. All that being said, I don't know any families personally whose children have attended there; so it goes with a grain of salt, yes?
You might like to consider contacting the principal and asking to observe a class in the grade(s) your child(ren) will be entering - I have done that before and it has helped considerably. Even if others do/don't have experiences they can recommend, it often just depends on whether or not the school and/or teacher is a good fit for your family.
