Mr. J.W. Shaw


As the school year is upon us, I am excited to conitinue to learn and grow with our teachers and students.  I am very proud to be part of a family of staff that is genuinely dedicated and inspired to make every decision around one question: What is best for the student?  This simple question energizes engaging conversations and guides the growth we expect from ourselves and our students.  I look forward to an outstanding year of community and partnership as we work together to grow our students to their fullest potential!
