Shakerag Elementary School is located in Johns Creek, GA and welcomes students in PreK – 5th Grade. At Shakerag we are guided by our mission of "Celebrating Learning. Inspiring Leaders." We live in an outstanding community that values education and supports the needs of our students and teachers. It is with this dedication and support that we watch our young "sharks" learn and grow at a rapid pace.
We recognize that all children achieve success at different rates, which is why we employ personalized learning strategies to cater to the individual needs of each child. The implementation of the workshop model in both English Language Arts and math gives our teachers an opportunity to conference one-on-one with students to set challenging learning goals. This, in connection with our Continuous Achievement model, allows children to advance through the Fulton County curriculum at a pace that fits their readiness levels. Students also have access to a wide variety of personal electronic devices that are used to build and implement 21st century skills through technology integration.
In addition to our strong academic focus, we take a whole-child approach to ensuring students are well rounded and have a solid academic, social, and emotional foundation. The entire Shakerag community is committed to academic success, as well as positive social and emotional interactions through the character values of leadership, kindness, and respect.
