Shearer Elementary School offers high quality curriculum to all of its students so that every child can grow academically, socially, and emotionally to be important contributors to the community. Academic programs are research based and Shearer's teachers work closely to ensure that each student is making steady progress on short and long term goals. This is demonstrated through the use of school-wide teaching strategies with multiple cycles of instruction that include intervention and extension. Each child receives daily English language instruction at his or her level of development. Additionally, each child attends enrichment classes in music, art, physical education, and computers twice a week through the school year. Collaboration and problem solving are areas of particular focus at Shearer for both the staff and the student body. We follow the Positive Behavior Learning Model, which gives our diverse population and multi-lingual staff, a common understanding of respect, responsibility and safety along with a process for solving problems.
