Shands is a fully bilingual campus PK-5th grade. We have a robust extra curricular program including music, art and PE classes weekly. Additionally, we offer other areas for students to become involved including spelling bees, Battle of the Books and The Amazing Shake.
We have four houses that students are spun into: Honneur, Successo, Rispetto, Amabilidad. Students can earn points for their houses based on academics and character.
Our Principal, Mrs. Lewis is a long-time MISD educator. With over 25 years of experience in education and over 10 years as an administrator, she firmly believes in the power of a quality education. Our job is to provide a top-notch education in every classroom and learning is required. We expect excellence; no excuses.
HB3 Board Goals
HB3 requires school boards to adopt detailed plans developed by their management teams that achieve goals in two key areas:
- Early childhood literacy and mathematics (EC-LM ) proficiency
- College, career, and military readiness (CCMR)
School boards must review the progress of each plan at least annually at a public meeting. These goals will be posted on the district website for the district level goals and on each campus website for the campus level goals once approved. The Board of Trustees approved these goals at the May 9, 2022, meeting. To view a downloadable, printable document containing these goals, click on the following button.
