About Our School
Shull is a very high performing school that achieved California Gold Ribbon status for its performance in 2016. Shull School also earned a National Blue Ribbon Award in 2012 for excellent performance on yearly tests and closing achievement gaps between student groups. The school has the reputation of being family centered and many parents drive from outside Shull’s boundaries to bring their children to Shull. Approximately one third of the school population comes from outside Shull’s attendance area. Shull School has excellent, experienced teachers, a standards-based curriculum designed for success, and high parental involvement. The diverse student body is taught to be respectful of each other’s experiences and perspectives. Shull Elementary serves approximately 4% Gifted and Talented students (GATE identified at the end of grade 3) in grades 4 and 5, 33% economically disadvantaged students and about 7% English language learners.
Shull has a rigorous curriculum based on Common Core Standards. Our award winning school provides high expectations for student achievement, regular assessments, strong interventions, tutoring programs, and a safe and orderly campus. The school’s current focus includes a goal to have 90% of students at grade level in reading by the end of 3rd grade. In 2016-2017 both 1st grade and 4th grade met this goal with the other grade levels close behind achieving 85.3% or higher.
Shull boasts a highly qualified faculty, over 50% of staff members hold advanced graduate degrees, and all are qualified to teach English Language Learners. Beyond the exemplary school statistics, staff members take encouragement from the numerous positive comments they receive from our parent community each day:
“Shull is more than a school; it is a community of families and educators, working together to make a difference in the lives of the children in our community. The strong volunteerism at Shull makes it stand out in our district. We are NEVER short of willing volunteers who are eager to step up and help out. The teachers are FANTASTIC and really work together as a TEAM to nurture our children and help them to grow into fantastic human beings!”
