About Shaw Butte
Shaw Butte is a learning-rich mosaic, a community of many cultures, where we appreciate differences and celebrate diversity, while focusing on achievement. Our staff believes that all children can dream, achieve and deserve equal access to a full education. Critical thinking skills are taught to enable children to resolve conflicts, make decisions, and identify problems. The love of learning is nurtured as a lifelong process. Shaw Butte's curriculum is fully aligned with State Standards and provides art, music and PE for all grade levels.
WESD is in the process of reviewing and adopting English Language Arts (ELA) materials to support teachers with instruction in reading, writing, grammar, spelling, and vocabulary to enhance student achievement. Teachers, staff, families and community members are invited to view the variety of materials on display at the WESD Administrative Center and to provide input.
