  • The staff and principal, Ms. Jane Baker, are incredible! Very caring and helpful. The teachers are great and there to serve the students needs, whatever they may be! The school offers diverse opportunities for all students. We are very fortunate to have a school of this caliber in our neighborhood! I have a son, and 2 nephews that graduated from Shades Valley in the last few years and a daughter attending the school next year!
