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.
