This is the best school ever. All of the teachers actually make learning fun. I went to SRS from kindergarden to 6th grade. Everything was great from music to art to gym to awards to the teachers, you couldn't ask for a better school or a better way to grow up with an education. Shelter Rock ROCKS!!
