9/5/2005teacherThe academic success of your child at James A. Shanks is capable of a high caliber depending on much you as a parent wants his/her child to succeed. The staff is there for you and will do everything possible to assist you with your child' education. Remember, the teacher can not do it alone. With your help, Shanks Middle School is the best place for your child. The principal has provided the school with every opportunity to grow both academically and professionally. Extracurricular activities are at an all time high along with the freedom of choice of the arts, msic sports and extracurricular activities. Parental involvement is low. This is the one of the main reason for the school grade of D. If and when parental involvement increase, the school grade will increase.
